Polyurethane (PU) producers face constant challenges in trying to improve their processing, enhance performance and differentiate their final products in the market. It’s also important to keep pace with shifting consumer preferences. As a leading global supplier of polyurethane colourants and additives, Milliken & Company can help on all counts.

Our 2023 collection – ColorDirection Bold Unity – is the work of thought-leaders and trend-watchers in the worlds of textiles, packaging, fashion, design, and marketing and a specially convened Milliken panel, analysing what’s trending today and what is next
  • Understand how Milliken’s polymeric Reactint® colourants help the PU producer to differentiate and brand their products in the market, and align with the continuous innovation trends in the PU industry
  • Learn how Encapsys microencapsulation technology, the most recent Milliken acquisition, increases the innovation potential of PU foams, either by temperature control and cooling effect in bedding & comfort applications or in new innovation platforms
