is a soft and coloured integral polyurethane with a nice sensation to the touch; it has a high mechanical resistance in terms of internal elasticity and scratch resistance. It is particularly recommended for production of seats for barstools, chairs, small armchairs. FreeForm is generally injected on a structure (insert, inner armature) that can either be made of metal, Polstrong (structural PU), wood, plastic or a combination of these. Moulding process employs epoxy resin or aluminium tools. It has an average density of 250 kg/m3

British regulations 1988 n.1324 schedule 1, part 1 and Amendment n. 2358 (1989), BS 5852 crib n. 5.
Following test reports are also available: Assessment of surface resistance to cold liquids (EN 12720/97); resistance of surfaces to cleaning products (PTP 53/95); resistance of colour to friction (EN ISO 11640:1998); accelerated ageing with lamp UV ASTM G 154-06 (outdoor agents).
A lot of well-known companies have developed their chairs using FreeForm, achieving great success in terms of sale volumes and image, so to display them in the most popular TV shows.
