Various types of polyurethane foam formulations can be made:
- focusing on elasticity and resistance to wear - ideal for cushions, seating and mattresses,
- with appropriate physical and mechanical properties for use in filters and thermal and acoustic insulation,
- combining the unique properties of elastomeric materials with the easy workability of polyurethane foams. These are used in a wide range of Automotive industry applications.
