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 Foamex€™s 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.

€œReflex Natural will provide Foamex€™s 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. €œReflex 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 industry€™s leading environmentally-responsible company and supplier partner.€
