Molding Material That Makes a Difference
Moldings for indirect lighting are made from high density polyurethane. High density polyurethane is quickly becoming the most popular form of molding and a solution to many common problems. Polyurethane molding has many advantages over
wood molding. One main benefit is that polyurethane is not effected by a change in climate or humidity where as wood is constantly expanding, contracting and warping. Some of the reasons to choose polyurethane moldings include its light weight, ability to adjust to moisture changes and it is also unappealing to bugs and termites! These reasons make polyurethane an excellent choice for home and commercial use.
Polyurethane is a great choice for basement moldings and baseboards.
