Supracell Visco®

High-tech solutions for technical applications, the result of years of research and development, SupraCell® technology opens new horizons to the comfort products industry. Supracell visco® foams are characterized by an open-cell structure, which improves their thermal conductivity, which is essential for its good performance.

How does it work?

The characterization of this type of foam is based on the slow recovery of its original shape, and when subjected to pressure, it gradually acquires the volume of the object or part of it.

What is it

Viscoelastic foam, also known as “memory foam”, was first marketed in the 1960s as a result of NASA’s technology transfer program – AMES. This variety of polyurethane foams was developed to distribute evenly the force of gravity that astronauts were subjected to during takeoffs and entry into the Earth’s atmosphere.

Today, this type of foam is applied in the aerospace and aeronautical industries and in all kinds of industries that are part of the comfort segment, particularly in mattresses.
