About GraFlex™


Considered the next generation of graphite foam technology, GraFlex™ turns away from the use of harmful chemical retardants as an active ingredient in favor of a naturally occurring graphite by-product generated from carbon mining. Without sacrificing the comfort, durability, and resiliency you have come to expect, this heat resistant molded foam dramatically reduces the heat release, mass loss, smoke generation, and toxic gas emissions that typically radiate from fire. This is done through the expandable properties of the graphite, which grows to more than 100 times its original volume when exposed to heat and covers the entire burning surface with a “worm” like structure of expanded graphite.
