What is Polyurethane?

The movie Small Soldiers, which is about army soldier toys who are alive hunting the other faction of warrior toys

Major Chip Hazard (Tommy Lee Jones) is the leader of the soldier toys and he attacks the humans and warrior toys in a helicopter and says

'I love the smell of polyurethane in the morning'

What does that mean? Clearly paraphrase of Apocalypse Now nepalm quote

But what does that line mean?

    It is referencing Robert Duvall saying, "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" in Apocalypse Now. (That was itself a skit on a coffee campaign and has become a stock parody phrase.) The small soldiers are made of polyurethane so it not quite a parallel.
