- Padding materials
"The evolution of comfort": this is the headline of Elcam, a company that has been working in the padding sector since 1970, processing carefully selected materials to create cushions and padding for indoor and outdoor furniture and for the nautical sector.
Active in Italy, Europe and the USA, Elcam is a constantly evolving reality in the padding sector, able to grasp novelties and anticipate trends thanks to its experience and constant search for excellence and innovation.
The company produces an average of 2,800 cushions per day which are made by a team of innovation professionals, technology experts, creators of comfort.
Elcam's is also a sustainable evolution. Sustainability is in fact a value to be defended in the entire production process: from the materials to the machinery used, as attested to by the numerous certifications obtained by the company. Its commitment is certified by the Safety Data Sheets relating to the Testing of Harmful Substances, which state that Elcam uses only "certified and tested water-based glues". This means that no toxic substances are released into the environment during the entire production cycle. Elcam has also obtained the certification called Greenguard, issued by UL Environment, which helps manufacturers to create and buyers to identify products and materials that release low chemical emissions.
Years of research have led the company to eco-friendly materials such as Aerelle® Blue and BIO, used in the furniture industry to create high-performance, environmentally friendly cushions.
Aerelle® Blue is a recycled polyester filling obtained and created from recycled plastic supplied by Plastic Bank, a global organisation known for its environmental mission of preventing waste from reaching beaches and oceans. Once collected, the plastic is cleaned and recycled into Social Plastic®. It is then transformed into flakes that are processed into soft, supple, comfortable fibres that provide a well-balanced microclimate.
BIO, on the other hand, is a 100% recycled biodegradable material. Thanks to its innovative composition, BIO is able to guarantee excellent performance: light, soft, comfortable, durable, with excellent thermal insulation and water resistance, it is easy to clean and maintain.
Water-repellent with comfort
Waterproof® is the water-repellent fabric exclusive to Elcam that is used for all outdoor production. The technologically advanced processing makes it a perfect material for the outdoor and marine sectors. Products made from this fabric are water and weather resistant (sun, wind and rain), of excellent quality, long-lasting and easy to maintain because they are easy to clean and stain resistant.
Waterproof® is a TB117, 1IM, British Standard certified material.
