Soak it up
Polyurethane technology allows manufacturers to eliminate fiberglass-reinforced resin from baths and spas entirely.
Polyurethane elastomers are lightweight, require less time to cure and eliminate the need for fiberglass lay-up, so cycle times are reduced and higher volume production is possible That gives manufacturers a clear advantage over older technologies. In addition, overall strength and quality is improved. Even volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are eliminated.
The process can be automated to reduce labor costs and substantially reduce scrap rate, making it highly cost competitive. Superior insulation values maintain water temperatures, enhancing customer enjoyment while also saving energy. This performance is particularly useful in outdoor spas.
