Materials


Polyurethane

The Polyurethane Foam is a thermosetting polymer with porous open cell structure.

There are two subfamilies depending on their composition: Polyether or Polyester base. Polyester foams are more insensible to solvents, detergents and oxidation and provide greater mechanical strength.

The polyether based foam is more flexible and elastic than polyester foam.

Highest densities agglomerated polyurethane foam provides excellent acoustic insulation.

All references have their self-extinguishing version.

Crosslinked Polyethylene

Crosslinked Polyethylene Foam is a thermoplastic polymer with closed cell structure.

Chemically stable and innocuous. Pleasant feel, flexible and easily converted.

Principal properties:

  • Minimum water absorption
  • Excelent thermal insulation
  • Good impact absorption
  • Temperature resistance from -80ºC up to +130ºC

Available self-extinguishing references complying automotive regulations.

Also available references that comply with current construction regulations.

Non Cross linked Polyethylene

Closed cell thermoplastic polymer.

Appropriate material for the design of technical packaging due to its extraordinary protection capacity against shock and vibrations.

Used to manufacture swim boards for its high buoyancy. Foam rod for hot and cold sealing and floors insulation are examples of their possible applications in construction sector.

Inert, innocuous and stable.

PVC Foam

The PVC foam is a polymer with closed cell structure.

Main properties: acoustic ,electrical and thermal insulation,adaptable to irregular surfaces .Selft extinguishing.

Rubber

Basically synthetic, closed cell elastomers, with excellent mechanical properties.

Elastic and flexible, good thermal and electrical insulators, resistant to acid and alkaline substances with a very low water absorption.

Textile Fibers

The most common textile fibers are cotton, wool, synthetic and/or their combination .

Main characteristics:

  • Acoustics absortion
  • Thermal Insulation
  • Quilting (impact protection)
