Can wood beams be made of polyurethane systems?

There is a wide variety of polyurethane systems that allow you to mould objects and give them realistic material finishes. We have some examples, such as the full-grain leather finish for office furniture or the imitation of brick or stone in decorative panels.

In today’s interior architecture, the trend is exposed timber beams. Is it possible to get these elements based on polyurethane systems? Yes, it is. thanks to moderate moulded density polyurethane systems.

Would you like to know all the characteristics of our polyurethane system for wood beam imitations? At the end of this article, you will be able to see the technical sheet.

Rustic polyurethane beams like those shown in the picture are a good alternative to natural wood in order to create trendy interior environments. As you can see, the imitation of the wood finish can reach perfection as no differences can be seen.

Thanks to the easy moulding of polyurethane systems that are used for these purposes, the resulting beams can have U-shapes, hollow square or solid, among other options. This allows the resulting beams to be used, for example, to cover joints of planks in roofing or to cover structural concrete beams.

Polyurethane system for wooden beams moulding: Synthemad 9372-A

In the case of Synthesia Internacional, we manufacture the Synthemad 9372-A system, designed for the manufacturing of moulded parts of a high technical value in a low density range. It has a moulded density of 80-150 g / l.

In addition, this system does not contain CFCs or HCFCs (it is not harmful to the environment or to health).

System components

  • Component A: Synthemad 9372-A-70 Polyol blend, containing catalysts, surfactant additives and foaming agents
  • Component B: Isocyanate H30 MDI (Diphenylmethane diisocyanate)

You can see all the technical characteristics in the following sheet.
