During our production, based on polyurethane foam processing, we use the following types of foams made by the biggest Polish manufacturers.
I. Polyurethane Foam - Standard
Polyurethane foams type T and VP - are the most commonly used foam materials in the industry of upholstered furniture and mattresses. This foam types owe its popularity to such advantages as: high durability, chemical and physical resistance, abrasion hardness, ease of shaping, fitting and joining and relatively low price.
Polyurethane foams type T and VP of low density are used in the production of backrests, armrests, upholstery lining as well as supplementary material in the form of fillings and separators. Foams of density exceeding 25 kg/m3 are applied to manufacture components of backrests and seats or as a perfect connection with springs. Apparent densities applied: from 14 up to 40 kg/m3.
II. Polyurethane foams - highly elastic and slow-burning
Polyurethane foams type HR - highly elastic, are mainly used for producing luxury furniture and mattresses. HR foam is a cellular material of smooth surface quality and irregular structure. It is characterised by high elasticity, dynamic preservation of shape after removing a load and ensurs a high comfort of usage. These types of foam feature a perfect air permeability, tensile strength and quickly regain their original shape after intense squeezing. Apparent densities applied: from 23 up to 50 kg/m3.
Polyurethane foams type CMHR - slow burning - highly elastic, were developed to meet the standards concerning the application of slow-burning materials in public-utility buildings. They are manufactured on the basis of high quality raw materials and compositions of cross-linking and foaming agents, and catalytic agents with the application of suitable preparations reducing combustibility of foams. CMHR foams used at our production comply with the standards of slow combustibility, required, among others, on the British market. This type of foams has all properties characteristic of the foam group HR. Apparent densities applied: from 23 up to 60 kg/m3.
Polyurethane foams type CME - slow burning, are prepared by means of a free foaming method. Foams of similar structure to standard foams type T, complying with the standards of slow combustibility, required, among others, on the British market. They are applied in manufacture of upholstered furniture used, among other things, in public utility places. Apparent densities applied: from 23 up to 50 kg/m3.
Polyurethane foams type REFLEX - slow burning - highly elastic, through elimination of fillings, the foams type REFLEX are characterised by a significant smaller permanent deformation (within several %, comparable to standard foams), definitely higher elasticity, tensile strength and durability during use in comparison with CMHR foams in comparable class of density. Apparent densities applied: from 23 up to 60 kg/m3.
Polyurethane foams type PANTERA. Foams covered by 7-year manufacturer's guarantee. Apparent densities applied: from 40 up to 50 kg/m3.
Polyurethane foams type LAZY FOAM. This type of foam is widely used in production of mattresses and pillows of high comfort in use. Thanks to its properties the foam adapts to a body shape because its elasticity grows along with temperature. Apparent densities applied: from 45 up to 55 kg/m3.
III. Polyurethane foams secondarily foamed
Foams secondarily foamed type R - rebound, are manufactured from finely ground foam. In order to ensure suitable properties for specific applications they are offered in many varieties which differ in physio-mechanical and usage parameters. Through an appropriate selection of density and hardness they constitute a perfect material for manufacture of all types of upholstered furniture. Apparent densities applied: from 70 up to 220 kg/m3.
