Innovation means a greener, cleaner world
Pioneered over 20 years ago, our Variable Pressure Foaming (VPF) technology is the only one of its kind in the polyurethane foam industry. Our commitment to the environment is not today's market hype! It's a journey our foam manufacturers started long before "going green" was in fashion and with our eco friendly foam we are committed to…making the world a cleaner, greener place.
Variable Pressure Foaming (VPF) Technology:
INNOVATION MEANS MAKING THE WORLD A CLEANER, GREENER PLACE
We pioneered Variable Pressure Foaming (VPF) technology as the foundation for many of our eco friendly foams and products. Beyond providing uncompromising product quality and consistency, our patented VPF process is virtually emissions-free. Since introducing Variable Pressure Foaming, we have dedicated ourselves to minimizing the impact on our environment by also expanding our "green" product portfolio and using natural materials in many of our products. As foam manufacturers, VPF also gives us greater control over the physical properties of polyurethane foam
Our Variable Pressure Foaming technology sets the standard in environmentally responsible and eco friendly foam manufacturing. In fact, VPF is the most environmentally friendly process used by foam manufacturers for the manufacture of polyurethane foams worldwide. The closed chamber reduces the need for auxiliary-blowing agents required in traditional foam production, and maximizes our ability to control process emissions. VPF enables us to develop and produce unique, value-enhancing products for our customers, while providing higher yields from raw materials than traditional foaming methods. This combination of superior product performance and reduced air emissions provides us an important technological edge. We currently operate four Variable Pressure Foaming facilities throughout the United States.
Compared to standard foam production methods, VPF’s eco friendly foam technology exceeds the Clean Air Act Requirements. The most beneficial advantage of the VPF manufacturing process is that the physical properties of the polyurethane foam are controlled through the use of pressure rather than chemicals, allowing us to reduce its use of auxiliary blowing gases such as methylene chloride. The Variable Pressure Foaming method of manufacturing provides a safer environment to our employees at our foam manufacturer facilities. Minimizing auxiliary blowing gases such as methylene chloride reduces the possibility that our employees will be exposed to the hazardous substance. Continuous employee air monitoring provides data to support the fact that VPF’s eco friendly foam technology is contributing to a safe work environment and a cleaner, greener planet.
