NVH improvement

In sports equipment and gaming components where dynamic forces are at play, Cellasto® decouples the critical contact points so that even in small spaces, your products will have excellent acoustic and vibration damping.

Excellent energy absorption

The dynamic performance of Cellasto® allows you to manage kinetic energy all within one solution. This not only protects your products, but it also protects your customers from jerking starts or hard stops, increasing overall comfort.


High compressibility

The low compression set of Cellasto® allows you to fit gaming and sports equipment parts into tight spaces. As the microcellular material compresses, there is low lateral expansion, resulting in smaller, lighter components that are easier for the customer to maneuver.


Soft and strong 

Cellasto® naturally has excellent aging stability without the use of chemical softeners. Because of its dynamic strength, this material ensures solid performance over time while its softness gives it the flexibility and responsiveness your customers need. Avoid the cost of frequent replacements due to heavy and extreme use, thanks to the proven durability and abrasion resistance of Cellasto®.
