FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE foam based on soy-bean oil extracts
In the last decades, Torres Espic is present in a constant technological evolution and the development of new products all over the industrial sectors.
For years, our company has been researching and developing new flexible polyurethane foam grades -combining the optimum properties for its application fields with safety regarding ecology and toxicity- due to the environmental concerning and sensitizing on the part of the human being about the toxicity of the products around us
In the eighties, we renounced to the use of CFCs (ChloroFluoroCarbons) and some other products harmful to the ozone layer. Afterwards, we decided to produce polyurethane foams according to the requierement of Class I from OKO-TEX, obtaining its certificate Oeko-Tex Standard 100 - Class I.
The last step has been the manufacturing of polyurethane foam from a renewable raw material, “Soya bean Oil”. All of the raw materials are limited or not renewable except for the ones that are cultivated. That is the reason why we are providing a more natural and environment-friendly material.
Our SOYA grades are produced by replacing certain part of polyol with soya extracts genetically unmodified in a percentage up to 15%. So there is a combination of high reslience foam -with more elasticity and durability due to its open cell structure- and a product based on renewable raw materials with an environment-friendly technology. Technology which is present too in our visco-elastic foam grades.
