VPF: 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.

      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.

      The patented and proprietary VPF process is used in the creation of a variety of foam products with unique and precisely-defined physical characteristics. The process is considered environmentally friendly based on the use of an enclosed chamber to control the foam pouring conditions and no longer requiring the use of hazardous air pollutant auxiliary blowing agents (ABAs) to manufacture the full range of polyurethane foam products. The pouring of foam in an enclosed chamber also provides the means for collection of virtually all of the process emissions into carbon beds.
