Viscoelastic Foam

Stock and Custom Options

Bergad’s Technical Foams offer the best engineered material for comfort, shock absorption, and vibration/sound damping applications. These open-celled flexible polyurethane foams have a slow recovery that can be controlled by formulation.

We produce all grades of Viscoelastic and high-resilience foams including, but not limited to, Technical grade, Medical grade, Consumer grade, Gel composites, and Transportation cushioning.

Our products are known for their industry-leading quality, characteristics, and price. Both stock and fully custom memory foam formulations are available.
Benefits of our technical foams include:

  • Fast lead times for all viscoelastic bun stock, sheet stock, and cut-to-size pieces. Though custom lead times vary, we are among the fastest in the industry.
  • No mass fillers of any kind, ensuring the highest quality and most durable foams.
