Premium mattress foam HT 4525: EUPEN FOAM PRODUCTS expands EUCAFEEL® product line
New hardness for soft mattress cores or hard toppers - optimises pressure relief and sleeping climate
Eupen, Belgium, Sept. 30, 2015. The Belgian manufacturer of foam products EUPEN FOAM PRODUCTS expands its EUCAFEEL® product line. The new HT 4525 foam will supplement the previous portfolio with a harder foam version from now on. The material is suitable for the production of high-quality mattress toppers and can also be used as a relatively soft mattress core. Like all EUCAFEEL® foams, HT 4525 is particularly pressure-relieving, elastic, regulates moisture and heat in the best manner and is very long-lived.
The new EUCAFEEL® HT 4525, with a compression load deflection of 2.5 kPa, is firmer than the also-available foam HT 4515 with 1.5 kPa. The benefits of the higher hardness is in the new usage diversity, as sales manager Pascal Timmerman from EUPEN FOAM PRODUCTS explains: "Mattress manufacturers are now able to integrate HT 4525 into their mattress structure as a soft core, or to produce harder mattress toppers. “This kind of mattress structure could also be perfectly combined with a topper based on the already-available version HT 4515 or even existing visco-elastic foams.
Available in different cuts and colours
The HT 4525 foam version is already ready for serial production and available from EUPEN FOAM PRODUCTS from now on. The first renowned customers are already using the foam for production of their mattress collection 2016. EUPEN FOAM PRODUCTS supplies EUCAFEEL® foams either as raw blocks or, on demand, as cut rectangular cores or plates. Complex cuts are also possible on request. HT 4525 is available in yellow by default. On the customer's request, each batch can be marbled with an individual colouration.
The EUCAFEEL® product line
Under the EUCAFEEL brand, EUPEN FOAM PRODUCTS offers foam innovations for manufacturers in the premium segment. The special composition of the foams permits a balanced sleeping climate and ensures a high quality level: "We want to offer our customers a foam that is age-resilient and reliable in the long term," explains Pascal Timmerman. "Thanks to the special foam formula, we can combine the best moisture and heat regulation, top pressure relief and high elasticity for comfortable sleep."
Improved moisture regulation and heat distribution
The cell structure of EUCAFEEL® foams is very open, while the foam is also hydrophilic due to its chemical composition: Mattress manufactures can process a product that, according to lab tests by EUPEN FOAM PRODUCTS, can take up up to four times more moisture (as compared to HR foams). This effectively prevents moisture collections at the surface and ensures a dry sleeping environment. The air permeability also is clearly increased, which supports ventilation in the mattress.
Regarding heat regulation, EUCAFEEL® foams improve values as compared to former solutions: The engineers of EUPEN FOAM PRODUCTS have designed the cell structure so that body heat is discharged better and spreads evenly across the entire surface. Moisture and heat regulation promote a dry, fresh and mild sleeping climate, which increases comfort.
High elasticity and pressure distribution
A high rebound capacity and elongation at breaks makes EUCAFEEL® foams much more resilient than earlier HR foam versions, so that no fissures are expected even at high stress. "The new foam is not only very elastic. With its special cellular structure, it also offers very good pressure absorption and distribution," Timmerman adds.
Tested service life
Both ageing by pressure deformation and static ageing show measurably reduced height and hardness loss in EUCAFEEL products as compared to regular HR foams.
