In 2002 Purcom was founded, marked by the vocation for
pioneering and entrepreneurial spirit. With just 1 year
of life, the company already pursued eco-friendly alternatives to the
expansion agents that damage the Ozone Layer.
That was how, in 2003, during a sector fair in the USA,
it learned about Ecomate®, the first 100% eco-friendly solution to
expand polyurethane foam (PU), recently developed
then by Foam Supplies. Two years later,
Purcom already had the distribution license of the product in
Latin America. Later, it obtained the approval by the
UN and registered 4 Brazilian patents adapting the
innovation to PU ranges unexplored until then by the
North American partnership.
Always in constant growth, Purcom quickly
became a leader in independent Polyurethane System House
in Latin America. With exports to Africa, Europe,
Latin America and North America, the company with 100% national
Capital has been standing out by promoting PU in the country,
concerned not only with increasing sales, but also with
transforming markets with projects of economic, social,
and environmental relevance. Until now, we had 2,000 formulations and millions
of lives impacted worldwide.
Purcom’s operation goes well beyond the polyurethane chain. With a
sharp global network of consultants, it is aware of the main production and
consumption trends, in order to anticipate the demands of the most
diverse segments in the market. To provide the best answer to each one
of them, it has a portfolio of strategic services, that range from
Product Engineering, Process Engineering, to the
reuse of industrial and post-consumption surplus. With the
first polyurethane technology center of Brazil, the Purcom
Intelligence Center (CIP), it is also the first company of the sector to peform
Reverse Logistics, transforming costs and damages to the environment in
benefits to its customers and to the humankind.
For all this, Purcom has been a pioneering platform in competitive
and eco-friendly polyurethane solutions.
Because it is not enough to know your destination. You need to know how to get there.
The company operates beyond the PU chain,
paying attention to the world trends in production and
consumption to anticipate demands of the most
varied segments in the market, creating
innovative, competitive and

The Responsible Operation® Program started in the 1980s, when the
Responsible Care® was created in Canada. Its purpose was to improve the
image of the chemical companies in the world, through preventative
practices focused on health, safety and environment. In Brazil,
Abiquim (Brazilian Association of Chemical Industries) adopted the Program
in 1992. Purcom is a signatory of the program since 2006.
Since its implementation, the Responsible Operation® Program resulted in the
reduction of accidents, increase in safety levels in the processes and
the reduction of water consumption and waste in the chemical industry. The
program also promotes excellence in quality management in
production, social responsibility and asset security, encouraging
the participation of the entire production chain.
