Uratex is considered the giant of the mattress business in the Philippines. They have held their throne for over 50 years and are considered an integral part of the mattress world. Uratex has worked for years to make a name for itself. After their creation in 1968, they have reached miles ahead of their competition in various ways.
Uratex has changed the landscape of mattresses with its modern technology and machinery. They have jumped ahead through their unique blend of contemporary machinery and technology. Foam-making used to be time-consuming and physically labor-intensive, but modern technology has progressed the operation even further.
Multiflex RNC Philippines, a member of the RGC Foam Group and the manufacturer of the well-known Uratex foam, totally altered foam production in South East Asia by adopting cutting-edge machinery. Uratex reached these limits through advanced equipment through multiple steps.
They used technology in each aspect to create the perfect mattress. These steps include:
- The Research & Development Laboratory
Creating an ideal foam requires the right recipe, and the RGC Foam Group's cutting-edge Research and innovation facilities are where it all began. Uratex laboratories develop formulas that lead to various types of foams. They also conduct tests to ensure the procedure will follow the overall product requirements requested by clients. Their department has developed numerous formulas that have helped the Philippine industrial history from 1970 onwards. Their R&D team has evolved to blend in to make up the perfect idea for you.
After the formulas are finalized, it is inserted into the foam-making machine's computer systems. These mattresses make up of 26 different chemicals that are used through computer-controlled metering pumps to make sure they are accurate and precise. The liquid through these pipes is turned into cream in seconds and then converted into a solid state within a few minutes. The concrete foam blocks and is cut between 1 to 60 meters. Through the process, foam is divided into 30-meter lengths. Their high-tech machinery is controlled by a quality management system and is run by some highly-trained professionals.
- Curing area
An overhead crane is then used to lift the 30-meter-long blocks and transfer them to the curing area. It requires 20 to 30 minutes for the center of an exothermic process that produces foam to reach 145 to 165 degrees Celsius. It will take another 3 to 4 hours before it begins to cool, but it will reach room temperature and be cured after 24 hours.
The foam blocks are stored in the warehouse. The manufacturing division of the facility will then submit a request for a specific type of block in various sizes in response to customer orders. After being transferred, these blocks are cut to the required dimensions in the production area.
The Uratex products that all of us see originate from this region. The foam blocks are textured to desired shapes after being cut to the size needed, depending on whether a pillow, mattress, or the car seat foam is to be manufactured. Following the cutting and texturing, the product is immediately placed under strict quality control standards for packaging before even being delivered to the customer.
