Explore our Engineered Foams division

Our Engineered Foams division provides durable solutions for a wide variety of customer needs in areas such as silencing, sealing, filtering, carrying, protecting, supporting and comforting. In general, we focus on the production, transformation and commercialisation of predominantly customised, semi-finished products in flexible polyurethane foam.

We organise our foam activities around two poles: Comfort Foams, which mainly comprises bulk commodities for upholstered furniture and mattresses, and Technical Foams, which offers specialties for higher value-added applications. Technical foam types are used in a wide range of applications, such as sealing and silencing in passenger cars and industrial equipment, sponges, scouring pads, filters, paint rollers and packaging.


Our passion for comfort

Our customers are constantly finding new applications for PU foams. They are used in vehicles, mattresses, sofas, packaging, medical equipment, specific materials for sport and leisure facilities and in all kinds of industrial equipment. Many everyday consumer goods would be unimaginable without their unique benefits.

The key to the success of PU foams is their seemingly endless versatility. They can be tailored to almost any application and we are continually innovating to optimise our product range in line with new demands and ideas. We have a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that provide the functionalities required by every market we serve. This has resulted in a diverse offering, which we organise around seven product attributes: Silencing, Sealing, Filtering, Carrying, Protecting, Supporting and Comforting.
