Worldwise also gives new life to the leftover remnants of visco-elastic foam (commonly called "memory foam") resulting from the production of human beds, pillows, cushions, car seats and other products.
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.
