What are VitaPur® products used for?
Although a highly versatile material, VLP has targeted the development of VitaPUR® 5000 products around synergies with The Vita Group in rebonded foam and flooring markets to achieve optimum product performance. The primary VitaPUR® 5000 products are used for:
Artificial Grass-Backing: To complement The Vita Group’s offering of RevoSport’s Shockpad, the VitaPUR® 5000 range is often used to form PU grass-backing compounds. PU-based artificial grass backings possess higher strength and superior temperature resistance than other technologies. PU technologies can also be processed at lower production line temperatures, resulting in faster dry times and reduced energy consumption.
Rebonded Foam: MDI binders are used in the production of rebond foam which can be used to manufacture carpet underlay, mattresses, sports mats or seating inners. The products provide a high degree of toughness while maintaining great flexibility and can be tailored to help achieve the desired hardness.
Some key benefits of the VitaPUR® 5000 range can include:
- High tensile strength and flexibility
- Excellent substrate adhesion
- Good wet out
- Controlled pot life
- Enhanced processing stability
- Reduced processing costs
