Suspensions and spring elements

Sedentary employees are becoming more creative multitaskers, often incorporating movement while sitting at their desks. 

  • Add Cellasto® to springs involved in suspensions to create a smoother, side-to-side movement

  • Replace metal springs with Cellasto®  springs to avoid clicking noises in buttons and release valves in headrests and armrests. 

  • Extend the life of your components with this material’s superior abrasion resistance

Friction dampers and end stops

When you place Cellasto® friction dampers and end stops in furniture, your customers can enjoy the peace, relaxation and concentration they need and deserve.

  • Avoid rough, sudden movements upon adjusting armrests and chair height

  • Soften the sound of cabinet and desk drawers opening and closing

  • Achieve optimal damping, regardless of chair load capacity

Cellasto® ensures lasting comfort and durability

Your Cellasto® furniture components will meet today’s expectations of smooth movement with no grating sounds. Find creative freedom and limitless possibilities when you co-create custom solutions with BASF’s team of experts. You will be able to create the unique designs you want while attaining the premium level comfort and convenience your customers expect.

Excellent energy absorption

The dynamic performance of Cellasto® allows you to manage kinetic energy at high and low amplitudes with a single material. The progressive load-deflection curve of this high-performance material means that when you add it to end stops, customers can raise and lower their chairs without jarring starts and stops.

Low compression set

The high compressibility and low compression set of Cellasto® allows you to fit furniture parts into tight or unusual spaces. As the microcellular material compresses, there is very little lateral expansion, which means the components are smaller and lighter. This facilitates the handling efforts for you and makes the product less cumbersome for the customer.

Flexible, strong and durable

Premium products should be built to last. Extend the life of your furniture when you use Cellasto® to create various components. This material’s dynamic strength has excellent aging stability, ensuring your furniture can stand the test of time.

Custom solutions for any application

When you place form above function in furniture such as office chairs, you end up with a beautiful but impractical product. The unique qualities of Cellasto® allow you to have both. Its dynamic properties give it unusual flexibility, enabling it to bend to your design versus the other way around. You can even use this material to create unique components, ensuring that your design is not only unique but also long-lasting and comfortable.
