SIMALFA® proudly presents the brand new SIMALFA® Competence Center, the world's first foam bonding demonstration and training center. Thanks to the Center and its technical equipment, manufacturers no longer have to interrupt their production processes.
In the manufacturing of mattresses, efficiency of production is key for a profitable business considering that the drying process after gluing can be a significant time factor.
We asked our expert for upholstery adhesives, Mariusz Stróżak, to put the new SIMALFA® 825 through its paces. In this interview, he tells us about his experiences with upholstering adhesives and the performance of SIMALFA® 825.
The new SIMALFA® Competence Center in Rafz is the world's first foam bonding demonstration and training facility. Manufacturers can learn more about SIMALFA® adhesives and their application systems in mattress manufacturing and benefit from our experts' m
Mattresses are manufactured from a wide range of materials, such as latex, polyether, PU foam, visco elastic memory foam, cover materials, felt, coir and spacer fabrics that all need to be bonded properly.
The quality of an adhesive does not just lie in a strong and long-lasting bond. There are further criteria to define its value and suitability for a manufacturing process, such as the application equipment.
The size and weight of mattresses is a challenge during production, storage, and especially delivery. With special packing methods, it is possible to ship mattresses conveniently and inexpensively in rolled form.
Adhesives play a crucial role in manufacturing industries such as mattress manufacturing, foam converting, upholstered furniture, or automotive.
In the upholstering industry, foam glues are often exposed to high tensile forces while the adhesive is still in its drying process. In such cases, contact adhesives enable a strong instant tack to keep the pieces together despite the tension.
The entire mattress industry is seeing an increasing level of ambition among both manufacturers and consumers regarding an improved sustainability performance.
PU foam (also PUR-foam or polyurethane foam) has become an indispensable component of many products. Depending on its exact composition, the texture of the PU foam can vary significantly.
In mattress manufacturing, adhesive application with a roller coater is beneficial for various reasons, such as an efficient and accelerated production, precise application, and a clean work environment.
Working in the production of upholstered furniture means facing growing pressure. On top of high customer expectations regarding the quality of the product, ecological sustainability is becoming an increasingly important aspect.
Due to the increasing number of regulations to protect the environment, each step in the production of automobiles needs to be reconsidered. By using an eco-friendly adhesive, environmental regulations are much easier to comply with.
