Thickness Loss Graph

CONSISTENT COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE FOR THE LIFE OF YOUR PRODUCT

All PORON Cushioning Materials continue to maintain up to 98% of their original thickness and performance through multiple uses.

The graph to the left shows how after 10K and 100K steps, the competitive low density PU’s and closed cell EVA materials break down, providing diminished comfort and performance.

PORON® CUSHIONING MATERIALS ARE BREATHABLE TO HELP YOU STAY COOL AND DRY

PORON Cushioning consists of air permeable open-cells that resist collecting moisture and perspiration on the surface of the skin. With each move, the material compresses and flexes, allow air and moisture to move freely.

PORON® CUSHIONING MATERIALS MAINTAIN THEIR SIZE, SHAPE AND FIT, WHICH MAY REDUCE CHANCES FOR CALLUSES AND BLISTERS.

Unlike other typical padding, PORON Materials distribute pressure evenly across the material and can help to relieve pressure points along the body. These pressure points may be a primary cause for aches, pains or even calluses and blisters.

OPEN CELL PORON® CUSHIONING VS. CLOSED CELL EVA

Due to its open cell structure, PORON Cushioning retains a “like-new” softness, flexibility and cushioning effect while resisting the tendency to bottom out and break down under multiple impacts. Therefore, PORON Cushioning materials return to their original form and performance after each impact, as if you are using them for the first time – every time.
