Enjoying the wonderful world with U

People always look forward to relax and rest in a something that brings solid support, dreamy comfort and give your body and your mind restful and peaceful sleep every time after the day's schedule.

For so many years, we have been using a genuine Uratex bed foam for my family. We really trust a product which gives us comfort experiences in our lives. We buy Uratex foam because of its durability and its high quality, and ability to support the body giving a truly comfortable sleep.

I remember my childhood days when we will buy things, my parents say 'let's buy 'Uratex', synonymous in meaning bed, mattress, foams, and pillows. That's why up to now with my own family, we trust and buy 'Uratex.' We also buy products, like monoblock chairs, and others at the Uratex branch in Project 7 Quazon City and SM shopping malls.

One of the reasons why we love Uratex foam, a suitable mattress that give us uncompromised sleep at reasonable cost, comfort for life. 

Uratex, one of the most progressive manufacturers in the Philippines today, makers of quality foams and mattresses started in 1968 with Robert Cheng who established Polyfoam Chemical Corporation to produce polyurethane foam and as he realized his dream of producing high-quality foam, he expanded into related businesses to address the growing needs of the automotive, furniture, bedding, footwear, textile, garment and food.

Through the modern technology and by using state-of-the-art equipment, Multiflex RNC Philippines of the RGC Foam Group, makers of the popular Uratex foam, totally revolutionized foam-making not only in the Philippines but also in South East Asia. Being one of the largest foam-makers in the region and with advanced foam manufacturing equipment, let us see how a Uratex foam product is made.

The recently media tour at the Uratex facility in Alabang, Muntinlupa, we visit the areas of Foaming, Curing, Cutting, Research and Development , and also the Showroom.

I Trust U - Uratex  (Uratex Plant Tour) 

The Research & Development laboratory. 

It all starts with the R&D facility of the RGC Foam Group, one of the country’s most advanced in foam-making. Uratex laboratory personnel develop formulations that result to certain types of foam and also conduct tests to ensure that the formulation will meet final product specifications that customers look for.

Uratex Philippines has a Foam Research and Development and Process Engineering Departments that are dedicated in continuous development and acquisition of advance technology, equipment, processes all over the world. The departments ensure that Uratex Foam are of high quality and of world class standard. The company is also making sure that the members of these two departments are updated and in-the-know of the latest advancements in the foam-making industry.

The company only uses the best raw materials from global suppliers such as Bayer, BASF, Shell, Dow, Mitsui. The company has not given in to purchasing cheaper materials from local China companies due to its belief that the China polyurethane raw materials technology has not arrived.


The formulation is entered into the foaming machine’s computer system. There, up to 26 streams of different chemicals are doused using computer-controlled metering pumps for precision.

The liquid will turn into cream within seconds and then into solid state within 1.5-2 minutes, and where the solid foam block may be cut between 1 to 60 meters in length.

At the Muntinlupa plant, the foam is cut in 30-meter lengths. This high-tech machinery is complimented by a quality management system and ran by highly-trained personnel. 

Curing area

The 30-meter long blocks are then picked up by an overhead crane and transferred to the curing area. Foam is produced via an exothermic reaction where the center may reach up to 145-165 degrees Celsius within 20-30 minutes. It will not start to cool for another 3-4 hours but will reach room temperature within 24 hours and is “cured”.

Foam block warehouse. This is the storage area for the foam blocks. From there, the plant’s production department will request for a specific type of block with different sizes as per orders coming from customers. These blocks are then moved to the production area where they will be cut according to the desired sizes.

Production area

The foam blocks are cut into the requested size and then “contoured” based on the type of product to be produced, whether a pillow, a mattress, or even a car seat foam. Once cut and contoured, the product goes straight to packaging under strict quality control standards, ready for delivery to the customer.

Uratex foams produced by the company are of high and world-class quality. The companies that produce Uratex foams are ISO 9001 certified companies.

Something to cherish, visiting the Uratex plant tour and seeing how the foams are made. Thank you AMPR and Richard Mamuyac for the opportunity you gave us.
