High Resilience Foams

There is no flexible foam application we would not consider. Tell us about your project.

High Resilience foam, or HR foam, is open-cell, flexible polyurethane foam that has a less uniform (more random) cell structure that helps add support, comfort, and resilience or bounce. HR foams have a high support factor and greater surface resilience than Viscoelastic foams. Unlike Viscoelastic foam, HR foam has a very fast recovery and bounces back to its original shape immediately after compression.

While HR foams are a significantly smaller part of what Bergad offers, we do offer foams in a wide range of physical characteristics, with:

  • Densities from 2 to over 30 pounds per cubic foot,
  • Firmnesses (25% IFD) from 15 to over 300 pounds,
  • Flammability ratings up to and including 14 CFR 25.853(a) Appendix F Part 1 (a) i & ii when tested per Appendix F Part 1 (b) (60 second and 12 second vertical burn tests),
  • and in any Pantone colors.

Some limitations exist in combining the above properties, but feel free to inquire about our capabilities for developing the perfect foam for your needs.

Whether you decide to go with a stock foam or have us develop a foam for your project, we offer our HR foams in the following ways:

  • Sheet Stock or Cut-to-size Pieces of Any Size
  • RIM – Reaction Injection Molded Parts
  • Die Cut Parts
  • CNC-shaped Parts
  • End Products

Suggested uses for HR foams include, but are not limited to:

  • Packaging
  • Medical Products
  • Sound Transparency: Speakers, Microphones
  • Optional part of a composite with softer Viscoelastic foams to prevent bottoming out in comfort applications

The markets and industries for HR foams include, but are not limited to:

  • Aerospace
  • Apparel
  • Automotive
  • Consumer products
  • Design
  • Hospitality and Hotels
  • Medical, Dental, Eye
  • Military
  • Packaging
  • Toys

To ensure the highest quality and most durable foam, we use no fillers of any kind in any of our foams or products.
Bergad also has the ability to vacuum seal foam parts or compress-roll foam sheets or products to save our customers from extra shipping costs.
