At Foamtec Medical, we’re breathing new life into respiratory care.

Polyurethane Foam in Respiratory Care

Our advanced custom PU (polyurethane) foam brings innovation and comfort to the forefront of respiratory drug delivery devices, promising improved patient experiences.

Key Applications for PU Foam:


Perhaps one of the most common applications of medical-grade foam in respiratory devices a filter. The open-cell structure of the foam allows for excellent airflow while trapping particulate matter, bacteria, and viruses.

Sealing and Gasketing

Medical-grade foam is also used for sealing and gasketing in respiratory devices. The foam’s flexibility allows it to conform to the device or user’s facial contours, providing a custom fit that enhances comfort and efficacy.

Vibration Dampening

Medical-grade foam serves as a vibration dampener in certain devices like ventilators and oxygen concentrators. These devices often contain moving parts, and the foam helps absorb the vibration, reducing noise for a quieter, more comfortable patient experience.

Comfort Padding

Foam components can also be used in the design of respiratory masks and other wearable devices to enhance user comfort. Medical-grade foam can be formed and cut into a variety of shapes, providing soft, cushioned padding where it’s needed most.
