PU foam

PU foam

PU foam can be divided into the categories of rigid foam and PU flexible foam. Rigid foam is a hardened, usually polyurethane-based foam in the form of board materials, while PU flexible foam is used in mattresses, seat upholstery, and insulation elements, for example.

PU rigid foam

RAMPF supplies rigid foams under the RAKU® TOOL brand as board materials that feature outstanding mechanical properties while also being lightweight.

Moreover, rigid foams that are used for insulation, in decorative applications, etc. are produced on the basis of Recypol® .
