polyurethane foams

Polyurethane (PUR) foams are known as one of the most unstable and difficult synthetic polymers to preserve. Yellowing, loss of elasticity and crumbling are the main deterioration patterns of polyurethane, making it one of the most challenging materials in the area of conservation and restoration of modern and contemporary cultural heritage. Consolidation, stabilization and implementation of storage strategies are the main actions to expand the short life span of this polymer.
