BiOH - soy-based polyols and polymers
CargillBiOH® polyols and polymers are soy-based, industrial ingredients for polyurethane products such as flexible foam used in:
- Upholstered furniture
- Carpet cushion and automotive seats
- In binder systems, such as carpet backing
BiOH® products can be produced from all the major oilseeds: soybean, palm, canola, linseed. The current commercial products are produced from soybean oil. Manufacturers reach BiOH® polyols with another chemical, isocyanate, to make polyurethane.
