Technical Foam Services Launches New Colour-Changing Foam

Northamptonshire, United Kingdom (5th October, 2012) – Technical Foam Services Ltd, a leading independent engineering-based manufacturer and foam producer, are pleased to announce they are now able to supply heat-reactive, colour-changing foam.

Manufactured by the Italian polyurethane foam producer Orsafoam, the new grade Ch 30N ST incorporates unique microencapsulation technology that helps to protect the physical characteristics of the foam, whilst reversibly being able to change its colour when exposed to elevated temperature or extreme sunlight. After a certain period of time, once back in a normal environment the foam then reverts to its original colour.

Ch 30N ST provides the opportunity to explore many new opportunities in the fields such as medical, household, personal care and packaging.

Duncan Geddes, Joint Managing Director of Technical Foam Services, says of this new material: “Ch 30N ST is an ingenious step forward in the world of polyurethane foam, and Orsafoam are to be congratulated for their development work.

“We are importing this foam into the UK in block form, and have already received very encouraging responses from several of our customers who have thought of new applications for this grade of foam. We feel sure that Ch 30N ST Foam will become a key part of our business in the coming years, and we welcome all new enquiries.”
