Importance of Diisocyanates
Diisocyanates are chemical compounds commonly used in the production of polyurethane foams, coatings, adhesives, and more. They provide unique properties and versatility to these products, making them integral to many industries such as construction, automotive, and furniture. However, it's crucial to handle diisocyanates safely due to their potential health and environmental risks.

The primary objective of this training is to enhance awareness and provide comprehensive knowledge about the safe handling, storage, and disposal of diisocyanates. By equipping workers with the necessary skills and information, the aim is to minimize the risk of accidents, exposure, and long-term health issues.
