The Bayfit 582 viscoelastic molded polyurethane foam system can be used to produce flexible, molded polyurethane foams with viscoelastic properties tailored to the manufacturer’s requirements. The new product has been developed in response to growing consumer interest in products featuring memory-foam materials that recover their shape much slower than ordinary foam. Such products include office chair seats and armrests, pads for bedding and wheelchairs, hand grips for bicycles and exercise machines and toys.

The viscoelastic properties of Bayfit 582, an MDI-based polyurethane formulation, can be customized to achieve the slowness of recovery. The Indentation Force Deflection (IFD) can also be adjusted to achieve an IFD ranging from very soft to firm.
