New Foam Breakthrough Neutralizes the “Not-So-Fresh” Smell of New Foam Products

IsoFresh™ from Carpenter Co. uses chemistry to eliminate foam odor
By: Carpenter Co.
Jan. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- What is the first thing consumers experience when opening up new foam products? A distinct odor is how most consumers would answer that question.  Early last year, the scientists at Carpenter Co. were challenged to come up with a better answer.  They succeeded by creating a whole new chemistry for foam called IsoFresh™, which effectively neutralizes the smell in new foam bedding products.

Carpenter Co. ( ) has invested heavily in research and development at its Reinhart Technical Center, the largest and most technically advanced laboratory for comfort cushioning products in the world. IsoFresh™ is the most recent example of the return on that investment. Developed in the Technical Center labs, IsoFresh™ changes foam at the molecular level so that its entire structure works to neutralize odors right at their source.

"IsoFresh™ is the sweet smell of success for the Reinhart Center,” said Dan Schecter, senior vice president of consumer products at Carpenter Co. "We look for opportunities to improve how consumers experience bedding products and, based on their feedback, apply the leading scientific and technical resources of the Tech Center to create the best new pillows, mattress pads and mattress toppers available anywhere.”

IsoFresh™ will ship to retailers of SleepBetter products in January 2012.
