Increasing spinning distance results in reduction of electric force and an increase in polymer solution concentration results in higher visco-elastic forces which restrict stretching of polymer solution jets leading to the formation of thicker fibers.
The company made its first venture into foam products, with presentations in polyurethane, visco-elastic and a new hybrid foam, exclusive to Hollander; called Energex, This foam has the density of polyurethane foam but mimics the feel of memory foam--and, like memory foam, it conforms to the body's shape and has instant recovery.
