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
In the last few years, foam bonding has become an increasingly demanding business. Many key application fields of foam are available.
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.
