Sustainable foam-core

Planting sustainability in the core

FROM INCEPTION, THE PRODUCT WAS DEVELOPED TO BE ENVIRONMENTALLY CORRECT.
ARIAPRENE® FOAM-CORE TECHNOLOGY SURPASSES ALL THE REQUIRED RESTRICTED SUBSTANCE LISTS AND WAS BUILT TO BE ENVIRONMENTALLY “FUTURE-PROOF.”

Developed from the ground up with clean technologies such as toxic free foam, and solvent free lamination, ARIAPRENE® originated as a performance material for footwear and has evolved over the years to become a full movement support platform. The foam-core technology is now being used in a wide range of applications for footwear, apparel, accessories and equipment. ARIAPRENE® represents a new class of materials, opening the door for product innovations previously unavailable in footwear, apparel, and technical performance gear by filling a void in lightweight movement support materials.

ARIAPRENE®

In 2011, Tiong Liong Corporation rebranded TPE foam brand “Nufoam” as ARIAPRENE®. The conversion of the brand name is for developing markets for European countries and the United States. The term “foam” tends to give customers a low-price stereotype; meanwhile, “neoprene” ,a well-known insulation foam material for wetsuit, is recognized as high-end and excellent foam materials. Therefore, the brand “ARIAPRENE®” combined with the prefix aria (meaning air and lightweight in Italian) and prene (taking suffix from neoprene)

water-based adhesive

lamination technology

The lamination technology used in the composite material avoided traditional solvent technique. Utilizing patented water-based adhesive lamination technology with comparable strength.

environmentally friendly, non-toxic, lightweight and flexible foam-core fabric material.

ARIAPRENE® is an environmentally friendly, non-toxic, lightweight and flexible foam-core fabric material. Based on the concept of environmental protection and love for the earth, ARIAPRENE® is committed to the development, its value is to make waste reduction and regenerate waste into new production.
