Foamex Introduces Earth-Friendly Foam
By Home Furnishings Business in on March 2007
Foamex International is debuting Reflex Natural, a high-performance, environmentally-friendly flexible polyurethane foam for the furniture industry, at High Point Market, which starts today.
The new product is available in booth 1-482 in the GREEN Style Pavilion, on the first floor of the Suites at Market Square,.
Reflex Natural is made partially from plant-based renewable raw materials, which Foamex said replace significant amounts of the petroleum-based materials traditionally used in foam-making. In addition, Reflex Natural is manufactured using Foamexs proprietary variable pressure foaming technology, a virtually emission-free manufacturing process that creates significantly higher quality cushioning material in a wide variety of density and firmness, resulting in a product that provides consistent comfort.
It also contains organic, halogen-free fire retardants.
Reflex Natural will provide Foamexs customers with all of the physical properties they have come to expect from the Reflex line, while delivering a unique combination of significant environmental benefits as well, said Andrew Thompson, executive vice president, foam and technical products for Linwood, Pa.-based Foamex. Reflex Natural provides the durability, comfort and feel our customers have become accustomed to and is a tangible example of our commitment to become the foam industrys leading environmentally-responsible company and supplier partner.
