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
