Onda Mat II is a XLPE foam sleeping mat.
The new material is “physical” cross-linked polyethylene foam, while the old material was “chemical” cross-linked polyethylene foam. The physical is also referred to as “irradiated” cross-linked polyethylene foam because of the process used to manufacture it. Irradiation crosslinked foam offers aesthetic appeal as well as an outstanding range of performance characteristics. Its smooth surface, excellent consistency, gauge control, superior physical and chemical properties, low water absorption and vapor transmission make it a versatile, dependable solution for a host of demanding applications.
“Onda” means “wave” in Italian. As it is named, the mat is composed by 2 forms layered as the waved one is on the flat base foam.
The wave structure made this unique cushioning in the foam mat.
The manufacturing method of the foam waving was developed to make packing materials for something very fragile like wines and glass-made products, which is also patented by the corporate company in Italy.
We had paid attention to the XLPE waved foam as to use for an outdoor mat, so asked the company to make and test the samples several times until achieves to create a lightweight mat without losing comfortability.
