'Alternatives to Polyurethane A lot of people don’t know how toxic coatings and paint used in ordinary situations can hamper their health. Even though organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are trying to raise awareness about this subject, standard paints and chemicals today are still highly toxic. Thanks to innovative alternatives to the ubiquitous toxic polyurethane coatings, this fact is gradually changing. Below is a short list of non-toxic alternatives to polyurethane that you can use in your home. 1. Green Polyurethane Green Polyurethane is the first modified hybrid polyurethane that doesn’t use hazardous isocyanates in the manufacturing process. It’s also one of the potential replacements for polyurethanes that use isocyanates, especially those that spread post-reaction isocyanates in the air. This kind of fumes are particularly prevalent in insulation foams and coatings. [The Ultimate Spray Foam Insulation Guide] In addition to its health benefits, Green Polyurethane has other advantages. For example, the Green Polyurethane coatings contain zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and are 100% solids-based. They’re also 30% more resistant to chemical degradation and 20% more resistant to wear. Green Polyurethane also cures in all kinds of conditions, including low temperatures.'
