DuPont received the award in the Polyurethane Chemicals category for Cerenol® Polyol, a family of engineered renewably sourced polyetherdiols that serves as a soft segment ingredient for polyurethanes.
Fenner Precision® received the award in the Finished Product category for its design and development of a rugged polyurethane tank tire wheel for the U.S. military’s Bradley Fighting Vehicle.
