Foamcoating is a product/technique, which replaces normal fabric and upholstery. Instead of covering foam with fabric or leather they spray their flexible coating directly on their high density flame resistant foam. This technique has many advantages: the coating looks and feels great, is very flexible, waterproof, has no stitches and can be applied to any dimensions and color.

Both coatings can be supplied in all colours (NCS – PANTONE – RAL) and logos can be printed on them.
