At PANA we process polyurethane flexible foams in both ether and ester varieties. We carry these in our product portfolio as standard with a density of approx. 16 kg/m³ to 75 kg/m³.
Due to their many technical properties, our polyurethane foams are used in a wide variety of industries - including in sealing, thermal and sound insulation, cushioning and packaging use cases.
Due to the coarse porous structure, the foam offers high air permeability, which is why moisture and heat cannot accumulate. The PUR foams stand out especially for their elasticity and dimensional stability. Because of their recovery properties, ether-based polyurethane foams are particularly suitable as buffers or insulation. Ester-based PUR foams show good resistance to soap, oils, lubricants and cleaning agents.
In addition to the above foam types, we also offer our customers recycled PUR foams. These are composed of shredded foam scraps, compressed under pressure and with the aid of binding agents. Despite being recycled, these high-quality composite foams are used in all sectors. These include automotive, construction, packaging, orthopedic and industrial applications.

Frequently asked questions about PUR foam:
The open-cell polyurethane soft foams, or PUR foams, are based on two different bases - ether and ester.
These foams are very flexible and some have a high resilience. In addition, the open cell structure guarantees, besides excellent sound absorption, high air permeability, as well as liquid absorption.
The difference lies mainly in the production - in the polyols used. These ensure that the PUR foams are given different technical properties.
- Ester foam:
- Good impact absorption
- Good UV resistance
- High resistance to oils, greases and solvents
- High elasticity
- Pronounced resilience
- Good load bearing capacity
- High resistance to water
- Comparatively high durability against acids and alkalis
Covered products made of polyurethane are used in a wide variety of areas due to the technical properties of the foam.
Polyurethane foams are not only used as mattresses, but are also used as upholstery material in the furniture and automotive industries. PUR foams also play an important role in the packaging sector because they are shock-absorbent and flexible. They are also successfully used in industry and technology as seals and damping (sound and vibration).
PUR foam can be processed in a wide variety of ways due to its open cell structure. PANA can manufacture all products in 2D format according to your individual specifications.
PUR foam processing examples:
- Splitting foam
- Foam lamination, self-adhesive finishing, removable adhesives
- Foam stamping
- Cutting foam
- Foam water jet cutting
and many more.
