Selena Group – owner of the Tytan brand and one of the world’s three largest producers of polyurethane foams – has developed a new technology that was put to use in the Tytan Professional Ultra Fast 70 foam. Its innovative formulation significantly reduces the time needed to instal doors and windows, which significantly increases the number of projects that can be completed over the same time. This is a response to the favourable market which facilitates development of new projects, but is also characterised by a shortage of qualified workforce.
