WHERE OUR POLYMERS ARE FOUND
ATHLETIC SURFACINGTartan Athletic Surfaces. The name says what we do, and links to our heritage. In the 1960s 3M came to MCPU for assistance developing a polyurethane sport surfacing. Over 50 years later we have developed considerable expertise in specialty coatings. And our Tartan athletic surfaces are installed at over 100 schools & universities across the United States.
CONSTRUCTION COATING, SEALANTSIron Sentry Roof Coatings. Our award winning formulation repairs and restores leaking iron roofs at a fraction of the cost of a new roof. We have also developed a network of trained and approved contractors across the United States who are available to help with assessing your roof and applying this proprietary material to factory specifcations.
FURNITUREHoney Bee is a reactive modifier that helps lower the density of flexible foams, lowering manufacturing costs while simultaneously enhancing the soft, luxurious feel and maintaining the strength and durability of higher density, higher cost foams.
FLOORINGThrough decades of experience in the athletic surfacing business we developed binders for recycled rubber tire crumb. This led our team of advanced chemists to develop binders that can be used for foam flooring, stone aggregate, as well as rubber crumb. We offer binders using conventional materials and others leveraging natural soy for applications where 'going green' is important.
INSULATIONThe fast reactivity of Honey Bee soy polyols enables spray foam formulators to increase bio-content for greener energy savings, higher LEED point, GreenGuard and BioPreferred status.
INDUSTRIAL FILTRATIONWe help customers by formulating and producing lower density and higher performance polymers in order to achieve aggressive targets for improved cost and durability. For a Fortune 500 company, our materials hold their filter media in place despite severe temperature and vibration conditions. Since that initial request we have over a decade of experience producing potting compounds for global customers with extremely stringent quality requirements.
