We are relentless about making sure that what we produce adheres to our customers’ exact requirements and specifications for their applications. This makes precise, absolutely reliable results essential. That’s why we consistently follow well-defined procedures that reflect industry best practices and proprietary procedures.Formulating, producing, testing and applying our polyurethane foam materials gives us unique insight into their distinct properties. Their consistent performance depends on our ability to navigate myriad test methods, specifications and customer requirements. Our well-honed quality assurance activities have made General Plastics a recognized center of excellence for physical property, flammability and developmental testing.
