Among the various expanded platic thermoforming techniques used in industry, GRANDO has specialized in the thermocompression of foams for technical applications, i.e. the heated moulding of foam by compression. Today, GRANDO is well-known as a manufacturer of highly technical thermoformed products for small and large-sized production runs. The thermocompressed materials are essentially polyolefin foams such as PE, PP and EVA as well as certain PU foams.
This technology offers the advantage of allowing the production of items of any shape and hardness and the integration of rigid inserts during the manufacturing process.
Furthermore, our thermocompression production unit is also equipped to carry out the flame lamination or bonding of different types of material onto the foam, for example fabrics, leather, vinyl, nonwoven materials, etc., as well as the necessary finishing work such as sewing, alterations and upholstering.
