Integral Skin

Integral skin PU foam moulding gives you a component with a tough, flexible skin that is moulded over a softer foam core, this type of PU foam moulding is ideal for many applications including grab handles, armrests, headrests, seats etc..

Integral skin polyurethane moulded foam has a moulded, flexible, tear-resistant outer skin. This skin is formed during the moulding process and protects a micro cellular foam core with a predefined hardness.

Integral skin parts can be colour matched and with pigment and mould painting to ensure parts are the same colour throughout, the mould tooling can also be grained with various patterns to give texturing or graphics on the skin surface giving the appearance for example of a leather cover, inserts can be also moulded into the integral skin components.
