PORON® Performance Urethanes

PORON® Performance Urethanes

High performance cushioning materials for multiple footwear and fashion applications

PORON® Urethanes are available in a wide variety of colors, thicknesses, densities and surface textures to accommodate almost any activity, from everyday use to the rigorous demands of high-impact sports and exercise. And if the precise PORON material doesn't already exist, one can be custom formulated for the needs of a specific manufacturer's physical and aesthetic requirements.

  • Maximum retention of comfort and flexibility PORON urethanes are made without plasticizers, which means the material will not shrink or become brittle and crack with age. PORON urethanes retain "like-new" softness and flexibility.
  • The highest degree of impact absorption More shock absorption means less impact to feet and joints. In side-by-side drop weight tests, PORON materials outperformed vinyl sponge, neoprene sponge, sponge rubber, latex foam and solid viscoelastic.
  • A breathable layer to help feet stay dry and cool PORON urethane materials form permeable layers that draw water vapor and perspiration away.
