Applications and Benefits
A leader in foam technology, Daher Manufacturing Inc. uses the Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) process. The RIM process allows a variety of materials to produce an almost infinite possibility of shapes and densities designed to meet our customers’ specific needs. Polyurethane foam’s self-skinning surface makes products durable and easy to clean. The flexible products are unique in that they are weather, UV, and tear-resistant with a durable, easy wash finish. In foam products that require an extra level of support and security, inserts made from a variety of materials such as full-sized high gauge steel are used.
All products are manufactured and tested to the highest industry standards to ensure safety, comfort, and reliability.
With over 30 years of experience working with polyurethane foam, our skilled experts are trained to ensure the highest level of quality is met with each product manufactured. Inspected by hand, our quality assurance program controls the entire production process from initial concept to delivery, ensuring superior merchandise and reliability at the most cost effective prices.
Durable and Tear Resistant
Daher Manufacturing uses high-end polyurethane foam which is durable because it is self-skinning. When the two-part foam is injected into a mold, a chemical reaction causes the foam to expand and contour to the exact shape of the mold. While the foam is expanding, the cells nearest the mold (what will become the "skin" or exterior of the product) are crushed together, forming a thickened and therefore durable layer that protects the inner foam cells from tearing. Inserts are positioned nearest the outer layer of the foam product as safely possible. This prevents the product's extremities from bending too far in any direction which could result in the breakdown of cell structure. The edges of the inserts can also be rounded to prevent any impact from cutting the polyurethane foam from the inside of the product.
Daher foam products can be molded to your exact specifications, with the ability to incorporate a variety of inserts fabricated from metal, plastic, or wood. When it comes to molds and tooling, Daher uses cast aluminum, CNC aluminum, or epoxy molds dependent on your needs and production quantity required. Molds can be produced from a sketch, pattern, drawing, or CAD file (see Product Development page for more info).
Products can be manufactured so that inserts are partially uncovered, leaving a portion exposed for mounting purposes. This enables the customer to enhance or improve a pre-existing structure to provide their customers with increased comfort, protection, and support.
The RIM process permits Daher to manufacture products that are seamless and aesthetically pleasing. There are a variety of foam finishes to choose from including smooth or textured appearances. We can also showcase your company name and logo.
Easy to Maintain
Polyurethane foam's self-skinning surface makes products durable and easy to clean with mild soap and water. Daher manufactures products that provide hygienic solutions because they are stitch free which prevents fluids and dirt from getting trapped in the seams.
The polyurethane foam materials Daher uses are weather resistant (protected against rain, snow, sand, and dust) therefore they last longer and are easy to clean.
UV Ray Resistant
Polyurethane foam can be used for outdoor and daily use because it is UV stable which means that it will maintain its colorfastness in an exterior environment. The ability to hold up against ultraviolet lighting enables the products we manufacture to keep their color from fading.
Polyurethane foam can be used to soften hard surfaces such as headrests, armrests, backrests, and seating. The products we manufacture are ergonomically designed with safety and comfort in mind and can be custom tailored to any thickness.
