Los Angeles, California – A tiny mobile home built by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) for its Plastics Make it Possible campaign will be at the California Science Center until mid-February.
The home was built by the organisation and partners to highlight the sustainability of materials including PU.
The living space uses Dow Building Solutions’ spray foam to plug gaps in the construction and improve the structure’s energy efficiency. Rmax’s Thermasheath polyisocyanurate foam boards were used under its siding, which reduce the need for heating and cooling measures.
Covestro’s tough PU-based fibreglass, with a PU foam core, make up the house’s door.
The February/March 2016 print edition of Urethanes Technology International magazine will feature an in-depth look at PU in housing and shelter. To contribute to the article call Senior Reporter Jane Denny on +44(0)20 82539641 or email: [email protected]
