Today’s office workers spend more time at their desks than ever, which is why the demand for premium furniture is at an all-time high. When you add Cellasto® to furniture components such as suspensions and springs, this high-performance elastomer will win over the most selective customers.
Why Cellasto® is the solution for premium-quality furniture
Rely on BASF’s team of global experts to help you engineer designs that meet precise specifications for both ergonomics and comfort while preserving the integrity of your design aesthetics. With locations worldwide, BASF is your partner for providing custom-designed furniture components created with the unique versatility of Cellasto®.
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.
