In 2003, the Airbus site in Nantes, France, called on the Codis group (specialist in occupational health and safety) to respond to a problem that no traditional solution could solve. Indeed, the drilling operations to assemble the parts of the A380 aircraft generated dust from composite materials as well as oil mists that contaminated workshops and operators, hampering the flow of production.
After brainstorming workshops, an Airbus Group partnership and two years of R&D, we have developed a solution for capturing waste at the source, improving the absorbent properties of polyurethane foam. Christophe Bleuse, CEO of Codis, then created the TechnoFoam company to market this innovative product.
Used in most European factories of Airbus and its subcontractors, TechnoFoam solutions are now available in three types of tailor-made products: composite absorbents, anti-pollution and impact protectors. This extensive range meets the needs of composite industries (aeronautics, rail, shipbuilding), but also those of industries exposed to liquid pollution or requiring solutions for the protection of machined parts.
“It all started with the invention of an innovative hydrophilic PU foam product for the aeronautical industry which obtained an international patent and numerous awards. TechnoFoam offers a wide range to protect people and property through innovation, while having a controlled environmental impact. Whatever your industry sector, we have the solution for you.”Christophe Bleuse, founder of TechnoFoam
