PORON® Performance Cushioning brings long-lasting comfort and high performance shock absorption in a durable material that withstands even the toughest daily wear. In side-by-side comparison with other typical insole materials, PORON Performance Materials exhibit how they have been engineered to provide maximum repeated shock absorption from minimum thickness.

PORON® Performance Material is a dual action solution to help alleviate the amount of damaging shockwaves caused by strenuous activities.

By providing the right amount of shock absorption with resiliency, you are comforted during each step. Why do you need resiliency with shock absorption? Because concrete can absorb shock but who wants to run on that barefooted?

Omnipel brings you PORON® Performance Cushioning in a variety of thicknesses and formulation combinations for added design freedom.

A perfect material for insoles in work, outdoor and athletic footwear and cushioning for sports equipment, PORON® Performance Cushioning is the material of choice for versatile comfort and shock absorption.

PORON® Performance Cushioning with Microban® Antimicrobial Protection Long-lasting comfort and protection from the inside-out

Consumer concern about daily exposure to microbes, such as odor causing bacteria, is on the rise. You can rest assure that all of your PORON® Cushioning Materials with Microban® antimicrobial product protection provide consistent, reliable and long-lasting cushioning comfort from the inside-out. We’ve all been there – warm, moist environments found in places such as shoes, protective apparel and equipment provide favorable conditions for bacteria and developing odors. It is primarily the metabolic byproducts of bacteria that cause odors.

Microban antimicrobial protection is infused into PORON Cushioning for lasting protection that won’t wash off or wear away for the lifetime of the foam, continually working to keep the material cleaner and fresher longer.

How Does Microban® Antimicrobial Protection Work?

When microbes come in contact with the material surface, Microban protection penetrates the cell wall of the microbe and disrupts key cell functions so the microbe cannot function, grow or reproduce. g Microban technology protects PORON Cushioning from the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause stains and odors.

Maintains Performance and Antimicrobial Protection g Microban antimicrobial technologies are infused into the PORON Materials during the manufacturing process and become a permanent part of the molecular structure. g PORON Materials with Microban technology provide consistent, reliable and long-lasting antimicrobial protection that will not rub, wear or wash away.

A Proven Antimicrobial Option g Microban technology has undergone extensive independent laboratory testing and has a long history of safe use in a variety of leading consumer products from common household goods to industrial safety. g Microban antimicrobial protection is registered with the EPA for all applications in which it is used. g PORON Materials with Microban antimicrobial protection meets some of the most stringent OEM RSL requirements for control and monitoring of hazardous substances.

Win-Win Added Benefit g PORON Cushioning with Microban antimicrobial protection is a no cost, standard offering added to most PORON Cushioning Materials.
