Polyurethane elastomers (PU) are part of the polyurethane group and are formed by combining hard (isocyanate) and elastic (polyol) parts, and changing these selections creates the superior qualities of the polyurethane elastomers. Urethane elastomers are strong and durable and are best suited for applications where flexibility, elasticity, and abrasion resistance are important.Read All
EVA Foam Ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA) is one of the most common materials used in the manufacturer of foot beds due it’s light weight, and cost-effectiveness. EVA is soft, light, flexible, and easily moldable and one of the most cost effective, best shock absorption materials available today.
It’s ideal for many footwear, foot care and sports performance applications.Read All

D3O technology is currently used worldwide by leading sportswear, electronics, and industrial brands to enhance performance and protection qualities. D3O is a patented technology that delivers rate-sensitive, soft, flexible materials with high shock absorbing properties ideal for performance and impact protection products.Read All
Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) are the premier choice of soft, elastic materials due to their robust properties, appealing costs and versatility. They can endure considerable stretching while still maintaining their structural integrity; and are true thermoplastics that do not require vulcanization. On the hardness spectrum, they can range from quite rigid to soft, tactile and gel-like Thermoplastic elastomers are ubiquitous and can be seen in action all around us.Read All
Neoprene™ is a synthetic rubber, sometimes referred to as polychloroprene or CR (chloroprene rubber). The trade name Neoprene ™ was coined by DuPont when they developed the polymer in the 1930s. It’s now the most recognizable term in many industries. Neoprene™ rubber is a stable, multipurpose product that provides protection in a wide variety of sports, environmental and industrial applications.Read All
