Polyurethane Soft Foam Systems – Solutions

ComfoPUR flexible foam systems from Foampartner are used in the automotive industry for fabricating upholstery elements for seating applications, among other purposes. They come recommended for their excellent mechanical properties together with a low-emissions, low-odor construction. Our flexible foam solutions are also in demand in the leisure industry, including in the production of consumer products. Our portfolio includes flame retardant variations which comply with diverse catalogs of requirements (e.g. FMVSS 302, DIN5510, EN 45545 or BS 5852 crib 5), for example for upholstery applications in railway vehicles.

Breathable PURBalance soft foam systems from FoamPartner stand out for their good moisture absorption and release properties. These properties give the foam its climate-regulating effect and high quality. Its area of application is the furniture and mattress industry. Viscoelastic adjustments and special requirements, e.g. antimicrobial properties, are also included in our range of services in this segment.
