Standard ether foams

Versatile and long-lasting – standard ether foams from Ottobock

High elasticity and good elastic recovery are the two properties that define the quality of our standard ether foams. They are primarily found in mattresses and upholstered furniture such as armchairs, sofas and other seating furniture and can be used anywhere that requires durability and resilience in combination with a high level of sitting comfort. Standard ether foams from Ottobock are also in high demand for processing in the packaging industry, for example as padding for cases, jewelry boxes or as protection for fragile parts. They are available in a broad range of densities and degrees of hardness and are therefore the most practical solution for many applications.
