A touch of luxury
BASF high-density polyurethane foams are changing the way external structures are built and how long they last. Fences and decks are now impervious to rot, mold and fungus, and are insect and termite resistant. So the structures stay strong, safe and always look as good as the day they were first installed.
BASF manufactures a broad range of polyol and isocycanate products sold under the Pluracol® and Lupranate® trade names, for use in slab and molded flexible foam applications.
Conventional foams offer superior load bearing properties. They cover a wide range of processing characteristics and formulas, and satisfy all demands of cushioning products. Molded foams are generally used as seating cushions, particularly automotive seating. High-Resilient (HR) foams improve the comfort and durability of bedding. With a narrow spread in cross section density, they allow production of a wide range of foams with high resiliency and support factors, and can also be made flame resistant.
Pluralux foam outperforms latex foam in a number of critical areas. It offers excellent support, is more durable, more resilient, and offers better tear resistance and flame resistance.
Micro-Springs Technology (millions of micro-cellular, polymer springs) offers better pressure distribution, low hysteresis loss and improved comfort over conventional metal springs. In fact, Micro-Springs Technology distributes pressure more effectively than eight-way hand tied springs. Other benefits include design flexibility, faster construction cycles and reduced labor costs.
Pluracel Memory Foam is created using state-of-the-art, slow recovery foam technology that provides superior comfort by reducing pressure and cradling the body. It is functional in a broad temperature range, absorbs more vibrations and provides enhanced noise absorption. No flame-retardant is required.
ElastoFoam is the visco-elastic and super-soft molded flexible foam system. Used for pillows and coverings for mattresses, ElastoFoam adjusts perfectly to the shape of a person’s body, providing superior support and positive bounce back.
