What is the Memory Foam?
The memory foam predominantly consists of polyurethane and also additional chemicals which increase the viscosity and density. Often referred as “viscoelastic” polyurethane foam or low elasticity polyurethane foam (LRPu). High-density MEMORY FOAM softens in response to body heat and allows it to turn into a warm body within minutes. MEMORY FOAM can return to its original shape faster than normal foams. It was developed by NASA’s Ames Research Center in 1966 to improve the safety of airplane cushions. Heat sensitive MEMORY FOAM was at first referred to as “slow release back foam”. The foam, formed by feeding the gas to a polymer matrix, has an open-celled solid structure that opposes the pressure and slowly returns to the original shape. Later, it founded Dynamic Systems Inc with NASA to commercialize the foam, including medical equipment such as sports equipment like American / Canadian football helmets and X-Ray table pads. After selling MEMORY FOAM products to Becton, the product range of Dynamic Systems was expanded. MEMORY FOAM products are widely used in footwear and fusped manufacturing in shoes. It provides maximum comfort both in sports like walking and in every day by taking the shape of the foot. MEMORY FOAM shoe sole products that give a feeling of wearing it for the first time in every garment and with its foot wrapping structure are very popular among the users and are the reason for preference. In the last few years, a new trend has started after the world’s big brands have started to use MEMORY FOAM products in their shoes. New trends are created in which aloe vera, and activated charcoal foam are used together to reduce odors and even to provide aromatherapy and antibacterial property in the shoe while sleeping, the options are increased by the user and it is a reason for preference. Although anthracite color of the MEMORY FOAM is widely preferred, it can be manufactured in various colors. The packaging is offered to the shoe industry as plk, but mostly available as rolls up to 140 cm or 150 cm.
