Typically, up to four times stronger and 98 per cent more flexible than epoxy, Polyurea-based spray solutions also offer the benefit of being up to six times faster to cure compared to epoxy alternatives, meaning improved productivity for spray coating operators. Change agent in global warming Martin remains focused on ensuring Pearl continues to act as a positive change agent against global warming, with Pearl currently the only company in the region to possess International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) approval. Pearl is helping clients accelerate their progress towards net-zero carbon emissions by providing PUbased solutions that are better for the planet. This is a step change for the insulation industry and enables clients and end-users, through ISCC auditing, to demonstrate the sustainability and green credentials of their projects in the built environment. More sustainable ‘regrowable’ materials such as Soybean Oil are being utilised for polyester production, while Pearl is working to raise public awareness of the need to replace less effective insulation materials with PU-based products due to their superior insulation properties – all while the company is reducing its own CO2 footprint through the installation of greener energy sources such as solar panels at its main facilities. Diversity and Inclusivity Martin has also spearheaded a successful diversity, inclusivity, and gender equality drive at the company in what has otherwise been a largely male dominated industry. These diversity and inclusivity initiatives have paid dividends in terms of improved talent retention, staff morale and productivity. The future for Pearl Polyurethane Systems as a company is bright, and so is its vision for the PU industry and wider global community. As they say, The Future Is Polyurethane.
