Linwood, Pennsylvania - Flexible foam manufacturer Foamex International Inc has launched the patent-pending Aquazone WD - "a new revolutionary sponge and mop product destined to change the way companies and consumers buy and use foam," the company announced 10 July.
According to Foamex Aquazone WD will offer advantages that the standard cellulose products cannot provide. "Unlike ordinary products made with cellulose, which harden and distort shape when dried after use, Aquazone WD maintains its softness and flexibility in both wet and dry conditions," the company said.
Foamex added that Aquazone WD's water-holding capacity is 50-percent greater than that of standard cellulose products, resulting in lower shipping weights and hence lower shipping costs.
Applications for Aquazone WD include household use, kitchen wipes, hydrophilic foam uses, medical use and industrial grouting applications.
