SIMALFA® Competence Center
The new SIMALFA® Competence Center in Rafz is the world’s first foam bonding demonstration and training facility. Manufacturers can learn more about SIMALFA® adhesives and their application systems in mattress manufacturing and benefit from our experts’ many years of experience. We work together with our customers to find the best SIMALFA® adhesive solution for each specific need.
The added value of the SIMALFA® Competence Center
The original idea behind the SIMALFA® Competence Center was to show the entire bonding process on a production scale. To that end, the Competence Center has been outfitted with a full-size mattress gluing line as well as all different kinds of spray application equipment. From the cut foam pieces to the assembled end product, the manufacturing of a mattress can be simulated. Adhesive demonstrations are usually performed on the manufacturing line at the customer’s location. Today it is no longer necessary to interrupt production to test new products thanks to the technical equipment at the SIMALFA® Competence Center.
SIMALFA® Live Demo
In addition to choosing the right adhesive, the suitable application system is also crucial. We can show manufacturers how to design the bonding process successfully and efficiently. Whether roller or spray application – at the SIMALFA® Competence Center, different ways of foam bonding can be demonstrated.
Would you like to discover the high quality and excellent performance of SIMALFA® adhesives for yourself? Visit us at the SIMALFA® Competence Center for a live demonstration. Send us your sample material and arrange an appointment. We will be happy to support you during your visit. Experience SIMALFA® adhesives first-hand and discuss with our technical experts how you can optimize the bonding process and maximize your efficiency.
Visiting the Competence Center in Rafz may not always be an option. That is why we also offer to stream the production process live. Just send us your sample materials and watch the manufacturing process online.
The right equipment
To make your bonding process as efficient as possible, the proper feeding and application system is crucial in addition to the adhesive. At the SIMALFA® Competence Center, we demonstrate the entire bonding process on a production scale, from mattress production with an industrial-scale roller to spray application with different kinds of feeding systems. After you have convinced yourself of our bonding solutions either online or on-site, you will receive a comprehensive documentation about the bonding of your materials in order to support the optimization of your manufacturing process. A demonstration at the SIMALFA® Competence Center helps you making a well-informed decision. We can show you how to design your work processes efficiently, achieve minimum application quantities and handle the adhesive correctly.

SIMALFA®: Solutions for mattress manufacturing
Pack mattresses immediately after production. Maximize efficiency, reduce storage space requirements and increase process reliability at the same time.
Wet contact adhesives for gluing foam
Foam adhesives are often exposed to high tensile forces while the adhesive is still in its drying process. SIMALFA® wet contact adhesives are known for their strong instant tack and therefore optimal for bonding under tension.
Tackling overspray, production delays and cost pressure in upholstery
Strong and long-lasting hold as well as safe application should be given. The SIMALFA® adhesives have been specifically designed to meet these high requirements.
