Case

Cargill is one of the world’s leading producers of polyols. We offer a wide range of Polyols for CASE and PIC applications including agricultural coatings, pigments, solid surfaces, polyurethane uses, elastomers, composites, coating adhesives, carpet backing, and more.

Polyurethane

BiOH polyols are suitable for most polyurethane applications.

Flexible Foams

BiOH® polyol products are soy based polyols used in creating flexible foams across many industries, disrupting traditional petroleum0based foams. BiOH® polyols bring a renewable option to serve environmentally conscious companies and customers. For every 1 million pounds of BiOH® polyols used, up to 2,050 barrels of crude oil are saved. Cargill technology allows up to 100% replacement of petro polyols, without sacrificing performance. In fact, BiOH® polyols offer businesses today additional benefits over petroleum polyols, including better heat dissipation, cooling rates, and additional formulation flexibility.

Automotive

Automotive manufacturers are looking for opportunities to use more sustainable ingredients in their production, as well as develop vehicles that leave a smaller environmental footprint over their life and use. In conjunction, these manufacturers can only accept materials that are durable, perform to specifications, and are cost effective. BiOH® polyols allow for 8-10% replacement of petroleum-based polyols while achieving consistent performance without increasing materials costs.

Conventional

Conventional foams created with BiOH polyols offer stellar performance while mitigating environmental impact from raw materials.

Furniture

Leading furniture manufacturers are now looking for ways to continue producing high-performing products while lessening their environmental footprint by leveraging BiOH® polyols. Foam cushions made from BiOH polyols are commercially available by several leading foam manufacturers and companies. These foam products provide furniture manufacturers with performance, as well as a more environmentally friendly end product.

Mattress / Toppers

Foam and memory foam mattresses are traditionally made in part with polyurethane foam derived from petroleum sources. BiOH® polyols offer leading foam manufacturers with performance-based alternatives that can lessen the environmental footprint of products, and meet customer demands and corporate initiatives.

Slabstock

BiOH polyols can be a very effective ingredient in creating flexible slabstock foam. Cargill BiOH polyols can be used as part of mattresses, mattress toppers, and other flexible applications.

Visco Elastic Foam

BiOH® polyol visco elastic foams not only help to reduce the environmental footprint of manufacturing products, but provide unique performance gains as well. In fact, BiOH® polyols can contribute to foamers being able to manufacture softer foams than pure-petroleum based alternatives.

Rigid Foam

BiOH® polyols offer superior performance while maintaining superior commitment to sustainability with renewable materials. Made from renewable vegetable sources, BiOH® polyols provide users with a long-term, reliable supply of premium ingredients. BiOH® polyols are soy-based and often used in creating rigid foams across many industries and applications. Commonly used in slabstock and various urethane applications, BiOH® polyols provide foamers to ring a renewable foam option to the market in place of petroleum-based polyols.

BiOH® polyols allow for 8-10% replacement of petroleum-based polyols while achieving consistent performance without increasing materials costs.

Carpeting

For carpeting, polyurethane foam made with BiOH polyols can be used to provide cushioning for several types of floor coverings. This foam can be applied directly to the floor covering, or manufactured as a stand-alone foam pad. For companies looking to reduce their dependence on petroleum-based materials without sacrificing performance, BiOH polyols provide a sustainable alternative.

Flooring

BiOH® polymers are effective plant-based resins developed for flooring manufacturers with binding, adhesive and foaming applications. Engineered to displace chemicals derived from petroleum sources, BiOH polymers can reduce manufacturing costs while addressing the growing consumer demand for eco-friendly materials. BiOH polymers have broad applications in multiple binder systems.

Insulation

BiOH polyols are used in a variety of foam insulations. From construction and building insulation to appliances and coolers, BiOH polyols can help increase product lifecycle and decrease our impact on the environment.

Slabstock

BiOH polyols can be a very effective ingredient in creating rigid slabstock foam. Cargill BiOH polyols can be used across many rigid applications including floral foam, insulation, automotive components, and more.

Urethanes

BiOH Polyols can be used to create strong, light weight foams that fit a variety of applications. The BiOH polyol is vegetable-based, and

In Process Cleaners
