Flexible polyurethane foam: definition

Polyurethane was invented in the 1930s by chemist Dr. Otto Bayer and was immediately used as a replacement for rubber during the Second World War. Over time several applications were developed but it was not until the 1950s that polyurethane was considered one of the best materials to use in the furniture industry. Today it is used in a wide range of products marketed in the form of plates, blocks or foams.

Flexible polyurethane foam is a stuffing material with a soft, supple and flexible consistency used in many types of furniture. The areas of application are varied: automotive, furniture and design, naval and many others. Thanks to the continuous research and development of companies in the sector, today there are innovative types of flexible polyurethane foam on the market with fire-retardant properties, to guarantee a certain degree of safety where it is necessary.
