Slabstock Production Process The slabstock production process involves pouring liquid chemicals onto a moving conveyor with raised sides and then waiting for the chemicals to expand into a continuous foam slab.
The slab is then cut into whichever application shape is required by the market. Huntsman with its RUBINATE and SUPRASEC MDI pioneered the use of MDI slabstock systems for bedding and furniture foam.
Proprietary technologies ensure fast cure, increased block height and consistent quality.
Batchblock Production Process The batchblock production process closely resembles the slabstock process, the main difference being the discontinuous nature of batchblock (i.e. the continuous line replaced by a rectangular mold).
Huntsman with its RUBINATE and SUPRASEC MDI pioneered the use of MDI batchblock systems for bedding and furniture foam.
Foam Molding Process The foam molding process, often used for furniture cushioning, involves filling molds with liquid polyurethane chemicals and then waiting for these chemicals to react and fill out the mold shapes.
Molding provides unlimited design freedom, high quality fit and finish, and allows the integration of supporting parts.
Huntsman with its RUBINATE and SUPRASEC MDI is a leader in a wide range of density foam systems for molded furniture parts.
