experience and solidity since the 90s
Our story starts back in the 90’s with the first polyurethane foaming. Our story continued from thermoforming all the way up to more dynamic thermoplastic moulding. Many of our projects have been developed for large companies, distributed across the international market.
Betechno Srl began as a consulting industrial start-up. Focusing on the study and development of product material and its feasibility. Meticulous management of production lines has lead to an optimisation of production cycles, review and maintenance of foaming systems. In recent years our refined systems have produced a formulator of innovative environmentally sustainable polyurethane systems.
For years Betechno has worked in close collaboration with the company Rire Srl. A company that specialises in the transformation of polyurethane into flexible cold TDI, meant for office, home and community seating.
In 2017 Betechno, backed by its founder’s thirty years of experience in polyurethane foaming, began to invest and formulate innovative polyurethane systems. Thus resulting in the brand’s flagship product; Benapol, the first 30% Bio flexible polyurethane. Along with Benact, the first bactericidal flexible polyurethane and BH2O, a concentrated water-based release agent. Materials that are in continuously developing.
As a result a commercial agreement has been legislated, granting Rire Srl the exclusive rights for cold flexible systems.
Betechno specialises in the formulation of non petroleum, sustainable systems. We have invested significantly into the research and development of the processing of glycolysis, a process that involves recycling the foamed byproduct material that would otherwise be end of line production waste. Transforming this byproduct from a liquid to a solid state enables a reusable product at a 10% rate in pure materials, additionally seeing a much higher percentage with more rigid materials.
The combination of the Benapol system and glycolysis recycling is at the heart of our processes, moving us ever closer to our aim of constantly reducing the use of fossil-derived products.
All Betechno srl polyurethane systems are tested by internationally recognised certifying bodies.
Our laboratories are able to develop any customised polyurethane system, both standard, petrochemical-derived, and eco-friendly. Including integral, flexible, rigid, elastomeric, compact and viscoelastic.
By replacing petrochemical elements with Bio fillers, our data shows that since we began operating in the market as a formulator, we have been able to prevent releasing a substantial amount of pollution into the environment. Calculated to be equal to about 50,000 pounds of crude oil, that’s 120 barrels of oil.
All of our processes equate to a combined reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, from extraction and all relevant activities such as transformation, transport, refining and distribution. As well as the initial 30% reduction of greenhouse gases from the foaming process.
