Foams & Flooring
BiOH® soy-based polyols and polymers deliver optimal performance for polyurethane-based products while increasing renewable content.
BiOH® polyols and polymers are soy-based, industrial ingredients for polyurethane products such as flexible foam used in upholstered furniture, mattresses, pillows, carpet cushion and automotive seats, and in binder systems, such as carpet backing. Traditional polyurethane foam is derived from petroleum-based chemicals. BiOH products can replace a portion of the petrochemicals in polyurethane applications. In certain cases, BiOH polyols and polymers outperform traditional polyurethanes, offering customers product innovation opportunities.
As the leader in high performance, soy-based polyols and polymers, Cargill’s R&D team will work with you to meet the challenge of changing market needs by maximizing foam performance. Our recent innovations include load bearing foams and memory foams that are low in VOCs and provide softer foams at lower room temperatures while meeting your renewable content/sustainability needs. Best of all, the BiOH line is as versatile as it is innovative and may be customized to create solutions specific to your product performance needs.
Foams created with BiOH® polyols can help mattress manufacturers meet consumer demands for performance and pricing.
