Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI)
The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry’s annual Polyurethanes Technical Conference, the longest-running polyurethanes conference in North America, offers the unique convergence of industry expertise, professional networking, and regulatory insight. Fostering both technical and professional development, the Polyurethanes Technical Conference is the premier destination to preview the polyurethanes technology of tomorrow and key information for today.
The Contributions of Insulation to the U.S Economy in 2022
The use of insulation in U.S. homes and businesses saves energy by reducing the heating and cooling loads of buildings, and therefore, reducing heating and cooling costs for home and business owners. In addition, by saving energy, the use of insulation helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions otherwise associated with the heating and cooling of buildings.
Economic Benefits of Polyurethanes 2022
The polyurethanes industry generates upstream jobs in direct supplier industries and even more in expenditure-induced employment. Nearly five jobs are created for each job in the U.S. polyurethanes industry. This is known as the multiplier effect, where the spending activity generated by an industry is used to support other industries and jobs through purchases of supplies, equipment, services, etc. and wages to employees which are spent on consumer goods and services, housing, etc.

- Polyurethanes are very versatile , allowing them to solve challenging problems, be molded into unusual shapes and enhance industrial and consumer products.
- Polyurethanes are formed by reacting a polyol with a diisocyanate or a polymeric isocyanate in the presence of suitable catalysts and additives.
- Flexible polyurethane foam accounts for about 30 percent of the entire North American polyurethane market, and is used largely for bedding, furniture and in the automotive industry.
- CPI members are leaders in product stewardship and CPI creates and shares safety and health resources for most aspects of manufacturing and processing of polyurethanes.
