The evolution of the Flexible Polyurethane Foam

In order to promote our activity of Research and Development and also the quality of our materials, we organized an exhibition-event called MondoPelma at the Campus of Politecnico of Milan.

From 50 years operating in the production of flexible polyurethane foam, we wanted to present not only our history throughout our products, but also the evolution of polyurethane that, today like never before, opened to future developments on both materials and applications.

Then, no more conventional or high resilience polyurethane for the upholstery market or the “viscoelastic” one, which brought the bedding industry to an epochal evolution, but even polyurethanes which pave the way to new markets and new applications, like packaging, medical products and for personal care, sport and sound insulation.

On the opening day of the exhibition, we held a meeting which saw the participation of all our partner-suppliers.

The meeting, opened by Marco Pelucchi, CEO of Pelma, saw the intervention of Angelo Bonsignori, General Director of Federazione Gomma Plastica, and the presentation edited by Centro Studi Industria Leggera (CSIL), of a report about the global performance of the upholstery and mattress sectors.

Finally, in the morning, the case history of Banale which presented an innovative travel pillow created thanks to the collaboration with Pelma.
