Low-Density Performance Foams: CoolScape™ & Gorilla Foam™

Gorilla Foam™ is a new, extra-strong, highly elastic foam that maintains the open-cell structure and compressibility standard with Peterson’s foam technology. It is designed to be a superior alternative to conventional foams used as transition layers or toppers – providing enhanced strength, breathability, and moisture management.

CoolScape™ is the newest generation of open-cell viscoelastic foam producing a lightweight, breathable, and durable foam well suited for mattress toppers and bed-in-the-box applications.

  • Lightweight memory foam
  • Breathable open-cell structure allows heat and moisture to dissipate
  • Extremely durable with no body impressions and minimal softening over time
  • Well suited for compressed packaging

Family of Sustainable Foam Technologies: EcoFlow™

EcoFlow™ is a new family of eco-friendly products that provides more sustainable bed design options. 

  • EcoFlow Polyol: 100% renewable bio-polyol for specialty and conventional foam
  • ThermaGel Eco: particle gel made of plant-based, renewable materials that provides the same comfort and support as ThermaGel™
  • ThermaPhase Gel Eco: combines bio-based phase-change material with our ThermaGel Eco, providing comfort, support, and cooling
  • AquaCool® Bio: clean, water-based cooling surface coating with a very high level of bio-based phase-change material

nanoTek™ Thermally Conductive Additive

nanoTek™ is a family of thermally conductive additives designed to improve the thermal performance of bedding and comfort foams. Its high surface area provides enhanced coverage of foam cell struts to help “close the circuit,” significantly increasing thermal conductivity and heat dissipation.

Enhanced Coating Solutions: Conductive AquaCool®

AquaCool™ is a clean, water-based surface-infusion coating with an exceedingly high content of phase-change material. It is a breathable post-treatment that can be applied to molded or slab foam and fabrics, fiber, and other surfaces to provide a durable, long-lasting cooling effect. We also offer AquaCool enhanced with thermally conductive additives that act as a super-conductive highway for heat flow. These additives don’t just cool – they help maintain the ideal temperature for sleep comfort throughout the night.
