A first brochure on end-of-life options for flexible PU foams was published by EUROPUR in 2015.
EUROPUR has updated the map of flexible slabstock foam plants in Europe. It is available for download with the link below.
PU foams are not considered to be hazardous products nor mixtures of dangerous substances. They are industrial polymers and “articles” under the REACH Regulation. As such it is not needed to provide safety data sheets to customers.
From the Europur and Euro-Moulders conference 2018 Over 300 participants including representatives from over 45 foam manufacturers attended the Europur and Euro-Moulders annual conference.
Flexible Polyurethane foam can be applied on the interior side of walls, partitions or ceilings for the purpose of sound treatment, sound insulation, sound absorption or for otherwise altering the acoustic properties of a room.
EUROPUR has published a map of flexible slabstock foam plant in Europe.
EUROPUR has prepared a factsheet providing for an overview of possible solutions for the end-of-life treatment of flexible polyurethane foam from mattresses and furniture.
At EUROPUR’s Annual Conference, Angela Austin, from Labyrinth Research and Market Ltd, presented the results of the annual data collection she is carrying out for our trade association. This year her project was extended to cover additional important flexible PU foam producing countries, such as Russia, Turkey or the Ukraine.
EUROPUR, the European Association of Flexible Polyurethane Foam Blocks Manufacturers, and EURO-MOULDERS, the European Association of Manufacturers of Moulded Polyurethane Parts for the Automotive Industry, have published Guidelines for the Establishment of a Safety Management System in a Flexible Polyurethane Foam Plant.
Angela Austin, from Labyrinth Research and Markets, presented the market outlook for flexible foam and the main markets foam is used in (bedding, furniture and automotive) at EUROPUR and EURO-MOULDERS’ annual event in June 2015.
