High-class PUR Integral Foam System – tear-proof, highly elastic and durable

Our high-quality polyurethane foam systems are used in a variety of applications in the automotive, furniture and recreational industry as well as in medical engineering.

Different application areas mean a large number of specific requirements. As a highly flexible, solution-focused PUR system manufacturer, we offer you innovative integral foam systems like viscoelastic, highly elastic, anti-static or antimicrobial options.
