PORON® Urethanes are patented open cell, breathable materials. The open cells act like tiny springs absorbing impact and providing cushioning to the body. PORON® Urethanes are designed to maintain their memory and continue to return to their original shape. The materials are resistant to moisture and other environmental conditions offering continued cushioning comfort in footwear, orthotic appliances, apparel and other applications.
Unlike traditional foams, such as EVA, the open cell nature of PORON Technology helps the foam maintain its original form and function...use after use. So you can count on products containing PORON Technology to provide durable, long-lasting performance.
The highest degree of shock absorption
No other insole materials offer more shock absorption than PORON® cellular urethanes. More shock absorption in the insole means less shock to feet and joints. In side-by-side drop weight tests, PORON® materials outperformed vinyl sponge, neoprene, sponge rubber, latex foam and solid viscoelastic. Which is why PORON® materials offer the best cushion against impact.
Maximum comfort and flexibility
PORON® urethanes are made without plasticizers, which means the insole won’t shrink or become brittle and crack with age. PORON® urethane insoles retain “like-new” softness and flexibility, resisting the tendency of other insole materials to bottom out and take a permanent compression set. This results in maximum comfort for the life of the shoe.
Breathable and anti-odour
Insoles made with PORON® urethane material form permeable layers that draw water vapour and perspiration away from the foot, helping to keep shoes and feet dry, while reducing foot odour.
A PORON insole for every kind of shoe
The PORON material product line offers a wide variety of colours, thicknesses, densities and surface textures to accommodate any kind of shoe for almost any activity - from the everyday wear associated with dress shoes, to the rigorous demands placed on shoes worn during high-impact sports and exercise.
