Elastoflex® E

Semi-rigid systems

 

Elastoflex® E is a demand-driven, tailor-made, semi-rigid PU foam system, used for applications such as foam-backing films, skins or leather.

 

Elastoflex® E foam systems for foam-backed molded parts in vehicle interiors comply with the demands made by automobile manufacturers for:

  •  
    Improved passenger protection by load distribution during impact
  •  
    Hidden airbag solutions
  •  
    Single-shot foam backing for a highly complex molding geometry (dashboard incl. storage compartment) with long flow paths
  •  
    Good adhesion to films and skins
  •  
    Good adhesion to the instrument panel beams as well as to reinforcing and fixing components
  •  
    Weight savings obtained by a semi-rigid foam of low density
  •  
    Short demolding cycle
  •  
    Excellent elasticity and good thermal and anti-freezing resistance of finished parts
  •  
    Process safety
  •  
    Defined soft touch for finished parts
