We use three types of padding, depending on the shape and the style of each model:
Polyester fibre down,
The "Ecoflex" polyurethane is a type of ecological polyurethane foam, which is patented and produced exclusively by Natuzzi, fully respecting the environment; in particular the polyurethane does not contain freon or other expanding agents.
The characteristic presence of the open cells, visible to the naked eye, makes it possible to ensure a good level of comfort over time.
The Natuzzi technicians study the ideal technical characteristics of the polyurethane for each model, in terms of density and hardness.
Each type of polyurethane is tested in the Natuzzi laboratory before being produced to check the level of comfort over time.
The fibre fillings are very thin polyester filaments that are able to ensure a high degree of softness after being processed in a special way.
These fibre fillings, selected to pad the seating, back and armrests, are used to provide a level of comfort that has even greater softness, particularly in the points that come into contact with the more delicate parts of the body.
Natural goose feather padding is used for the same purpose, which has outstanding quality and a high degree of softness after selection and sterilisation.
Use and maintenance
The Natuzzi padding material does not require any specific type of maintenance except for the kind associated with the normal care of the sofa. In particular, if you purchase sofas that have a fibre filling or down padding, it will be necessary to model them delicately to ensure they return to their initial appearance, which will have altered during transportation.
In fact, the sofa is subjected to a long journey before reaching your home, which could temporarily affect the initial aesthetic quality. To this end, you will find an illustration sheet inside the envelope containing the feet attached to the product, which will provide you with the main recommendations to return your sofa to its original excellent look.
During the first 3 months of life polyurethane foam padding tends to become softer and then finally stabilises itself.
This process is absolutely normal, in fact, pressure is applied on the seating that breaks the micro-cells that comprise the polyurethane when a person sits down for the first time. This breakdown, which is absolutely natural for this type of material, produces a slight softening effect.
Again when the sofa is purchased, for the same reason mentioned above, it is absolutely normal that the softness of a seat/back padded using polyurethane form is found to be different from the one adjacent, depending on the specific use. This characteristic will disappear after the first 3 months of proper use.
Light creases may form on the covering following the abovementioned natural settling of the padding.
These creases are to be considered absolutely normal and depend on the settling of the leather during the initial 3 months of normal use.
