Types of Foam
There are different types of foam available, depending on your unique requirements. We can manufacture and convert your foam to be used in a number of applications such as seating and backrests for office chairs, foam for lounge suite manufacture etc. Here are a few popular types of foam products that we offer:
This open-cell foam is the product that most people recognize as normal foam and currently makes up the largest part of our business.
The foam grades are manufactured in varying density and hardness levels ranging from 12 to 36, depending on the application. Virgin foam is used extensively in the manufacturing of mattresses, furniture and many products for everyday use.
This foam is manufactured by shredding pieces of offcut virgin foam and bonding it under pressure to form high-density hard blocks.
It is essentially recycled foam and is used to support virgin foam in high load-bearing applications such as bar stool seats, bus seats, and gym mats and to provide the skeleton in upmarket mattresses.
This is a high-density, high-resilience polyurethane foam which begins to approach natural latex in terms of its comfort. It is generally used in top-end mattresses.
Also referred to as Visco Elastic Foam, this high-density, low-resilience polyurethane foam is able to contour to pressure and slowly return to its original shape when the pressure is released. It is used as a comfort layer in top-end mattresses, toppers and in upmarket hospitals where relief from pressure helps to minimize the occurrence of pressure sores.
These foams also tend to be more heat sensitive than the standard foams which means they become softer when warm and firmer when cold.
Products in this range are moulded under very high pressure into specific shapes and are of exceptional quality. The density and hardness will vary according to the application for which it will be used.
Typical applications would be seats for the automotive industry, cinema seats, pillows, back supports and other products for the health industry.
