The new Polyurethanes Service Centers will help accelerate both existing and new opportunities in the Balkan, Middle East and Africa regions, improving the speed and efficiency of application development, the company stated. They will provide customers’ access to laboratory and equipment capabilities and tailored technical service, including product demonstrations, prototype development, and mechanical testing of final materials. The centers will also provide training opportunities for customers and have warehousing capabilities for several Polyurethane Systems.
