Comfortable and supportive mattresses are traditionally made in part with polyurethane foam. Performance-based foam products made from BiOH polyols are commercially available by several foam manufacturers. Incorporating foam products made with BiOH polyols is one solution for bedding manufacturers that are looking for ways to lessen the environmental footprint of their products and meet consumer demands for performance and pricing.
