Polyurethane was first discovered in the 1930’s by Professor Otto Bayer in his quest to search for an alternative for natural rubber during the World War II. But he discovered more than what he longed for – polyurethane. It then turned out to be one of the most important compounds in almost all of the things around us today; a product that’s far greater than a substitute for natural rubber. Because of his discovery, he was referred as the Father of the polyurethanes engineering. Nowadays, polyurethane comes in many forms to make it suitable to a myriad of applications because of its flexibility to substitute aplenty of materials that are either scarce or expensive.
