Some foams are designed to meet demanding technical needs. By their specific formulations, these foams can control the following characteristics.
Polyurethane foam under certain conditions combining both heat and high humidity is susceptible of growing microorganisms. If this is a concern, additives can be introduced into to the foam formula to prevent bacteria, yeast or fungi from growing.
Foam can be used in packaging, textile and in other applications, anti-static agents are added to the foam to minimize the electrical resistance of the foam so that buildups of static electrical charges are minimized.
Foam naturally absorbs water. Sponges are commonly manufactured from polyurethane foam. At Domfoam, we can manufacture foam that does not absorb water!
