Poly Labs manufactures a variety of integral skin polyurethane components and PU furniture including armrests for furniture companies and for numerous automotive applications such as armrests for public safety and emergency vehicle retrofits. Integral skin polyurethane foam offers a thicker, more rugged outer skin which is ideal for arm rests.
These polyurethane armrest and vehicle parts are typically molded around a structural metal insert. Our armrests are specifically designed for driver comfort and durability. Depending upon the application, we offer dozens of different vehicle armrest designs. Poly Labs supplies several manufacturers of emergency response vehicles with interior armrests.
Other polyurethane automotive interior components include door grips and seat restraint components. For more information about our poured PU automotive parts, including armrests, please contact our sales team.
Polyurethane Parts for PU Furniture and Home Goods
Poly Labs has the manufacturing expertise, material selection and engineering resources to deliver high-quality polyurethane parts for furniture and home goods.
Leading furniture manufacturers trust in Poly Labs capabilities with reaction injection molding. Our longstanding experience with polyurethane components and thermoplastic parts allows furniture manufactures to deliver quality products at the right price to end users.
Polyurethane Foam Molding
The self-adhesive office furniture pad, seen below, is one example of a finished product we deliver to our furniture partners. The pad is molded in cast tooling. In doing so, it captures the detail of its geometric texture.
In a unique application of polyurethane foam molding, the back of the pad is integrated with an adhesive tape. This takes place during the molding process. As a result, the surface (geometric texture) allows for a wide variety of applications. The most common we see is in systems office seating.

Integral Skin and Medium Density Microcellular U-92 Foam
U-92 Microcellular PUR foam is a medium density Integral skin foam that offers a thicker outer skin which is ideal for a number of applications including arm rests. The internal, underlying foam core is formulated with a lower density. Usually, Poly Labs integral skin foam has a density between 0.25 and 0.40 g/cm³. The hardness of the material can vary with formulation and density. foam for applications in which soft-padding is desired. Typical applications for U-92 polyurethane foam include:
- Furniture armrests
- Automotive armrests
- Recoil pads for rifles and shotguns (right)
- Recreational padding
- Head rests
- Back rests
- Other soft padding products
Poly Labs advises U-92 PU Foam be in-molded, coated, or post-painted to protect light colors from ultraviolet light degradation. The properties of our medium density, U-92 foam are as follows:
|Density||0.25 to 0.35 g/cm³|
|Hardness, Shore OO||65 – 75|
|Tensile Strength||300 psi|
|Die C Tear||29 pli|
|Abrasion Resistance, Taber, mg loss per 1,000 cycles||< 200|
