The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) serves as the voice of the polyurethanes industry in North America. CPI member companies are committed to supporting a continuing effort to improve the industry’s responsible management of chemicals.

CPI members have the unique opportunity to help shape the industry’s responses to key issues, hear the latest information related to polyurethanes, build relationships with downstream users and participate in important industry decisions. CPI relies on member participation to not only represent their company’s interest, but also to recognize and address issues from an industry-wide position.

This summary highlights the importance of the polyurethanes industry to the U.S. economy.

CPI offers environmental, health and safety programs that establish polyurethane raw material suppliers and polyurethane producers as leaders in product stewardship.

CPI identifies, demonstrates and promotes commercially viable technologies for recycling and recovering polyurethane process and post-consumer scrap and communicates the fact that polyurethane products are recyclable. We pursue innovative methods for reducing the amount of solid waste produced by the polyurethanes industry and generated from discarded polyurethane products commonly found in durable goods such as appliances, automobiles, bedding, carpet padding and upholstered furniture.

CPI offers a wealth of information to its members on issues that impact the entire industry. Whether it is building codes and standards, regulatory and environmental issues, industry or product promotion, technical programs or more, CPI offers its members timely and reliable information.

CPI seeks to advocate and promote the world-wide use of polyurethanes by promoting their features and benefits to influencers and decision makers, reducing barriers to the use of polyurethanes and serving as an industry-wide forum for issue identification and resolution. We also work closely with other polyurethane-related associations.

CPI offers several opportunities for equipment manufacturers and producers to network, participate on CPI issue groups, hear about the latest technological advances and address industry-wide issues.

CPI also offers additional member benefits, including:
