What can our foams do?
Seven attributes – endless possibilities!
Providing the right material with the right technology so that we can add value to your products, that is what drives our business. To do so, we pre-dominantly offer semi-finished flexible polyurethane foam products and components for B2B markets. We tailor our products using different technologies to influence its properties and behaviour. And as new demands and ideas emerge, new solutions are offered.
Foams have seven basic functions: Silencing, Sealing, Filtering, Carrying, Protecting, Supporting and Comforting. We can adapt, enhance and even combine these to obtain precise results. To get the most from foams, ask yourself the following questions as you explore the list below: Do I already use these functions in my products? Are they optimised? Could they be added? Is there a more efficient way to achieve the effect I need?
The silencing functions of foam include acoustic isolation, acoustic absorption, vibration damping and thermo‐acoustic insulation. Many of our silencing solutions combine the properties of foams with those of other materials, such as plastic films and textiles, to achieve the precise results our customers need.
Foams can be used to keep air and water in or out, as well as other gases and liquids. Various processing technologies can be used to adapt characteristics such as watertightness and density when compressed, and create precise, reliable sealing materials.
By manipulating cell structures during processing, we can create foams that separate gases, liquids and solids. These foams are the basis for permanent, cleanable air filters that provide high dust loads for engines and industrial equipment.
The cellular structure of PU foam gives it excellent absorption, dispersion and abrasion qualities. This makes it an ideal support for carrying and transferring liquids and solids.
Foam can be used to protect most materials, as well as the human body. We provide tailor‐made shock pads for indoor and outdoor sport and leisure facilities.
Foam has the ability to support the body by providing impact resilience and pressure relief. It can also be tailored to provide various degrees of density, hardness, resilience, dynamic fatigue and air permeability.
Comforting includes the capacity to make products more aesthetically pleasing and create a sense of relaxation and well‐being. This is essential in many market segments.
