Foams

The foam is the key feature of a chamois, for this reason rigorous controls and hi-quality raw materials are requested to our suppliers. La Fonte uses highly performing foams granting an excellent quality with different densities.

The foams that are used for our production are breathable and with open cells, where air flows freely with the foam returning to its original position after the compression. Density value is determined by the concentration of the cells.
High density is synonymous of high concentration of cells and high “support”, i.e. shock-absorption action and compression resistance. High density requires a strong deforming action.
