Sponge Manufacturer

CARPENTER announces acquisition of
Recticel Engineered Foams Division
(formerly FoamPartner)

Sponge Manufacturer of Customized Cleaning Foams

Individual industrial formats for automotive sponges, cleaning sponges, bath sponges & foam sponges in special designs

Our customers benefit from one of the world‘s widest ranges of color-proof sponge foams made of polyester-based PUR foams. Thanks to their hydrophilic nature, our foam sponges have excellent absorption and retention properties, thus making cleaning practical and efficient. Their special absorbency is seen not only through the wiping away of dirt and moisture, but also in the soaking up of liquids.

As a foam sponge manufacturer, we offer you a large selection of various volumetric weights and pore sizes that can be used for a number of different cleaning purposes. For instance, automotive sponges, polishing sponges, household sponges, kitchen sponges such as dishwashing sponges and cleaning sponges, sponges for body care and bath sponges. For professional uses such as demanding craftwork, for instance, in the construction or ceramics industries, we make particularly robust specialty foams. What’s more, we can deliver customized industrial formats, special shapes and die cuts.
