The authors of this publication speak about polyurethanes utilized in numerous biomedical functions. Polyurethanes shape a wide kinfolk of polymeric fabrics with a major variety of chemical compositions and homes the big variety of homes that may be completed with polyurethane chemistry has attracted the eye of builders of biomedical units who see promise within the mechanical flexibility of those fabrics mixed with their excessive tear energy.

Interest in isocyanates and polyurethanes grew gradually in the United States with the introduction of PU elastomers (1950) and flexible foams (1952) by Bayer. In their early years, polyurethanes were characterized by their good properties but high prices. The arrival of flexible polyurethane foams with high strength and low densities insured large-scale production of PU materials and their precursors. Between 1952-1954, Bayer developed a diisocyanate-polyester flexible foam suitable for the continuous commercial production of Moltopren.
