Auraloop® is a brand-new range of cushioning solutions made from an innovative structure of Polyester-based fibers, 100% recyclable, aimed at the mobility markets.


Comfort above all else

Our solution offers an increased level of performance in terms of thermal comfort and durability. It enables a better passive or active thermal regulation of all occupants.

A next-generation solution for car seats

Auraloop® intends to replace polyurethane foam currently used in car seats. Our teams have been jointly developing Auraloop® with Indorama Ventures, a global leader in polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

Alternative material to PU foam

Crafted from polyester-based fibers, our eco-friendly material not only provides superior comfort but offers a greener choice for automotive interiors. Say goodbye to PU foam and embrace a more sustainable and comfortable car seat.

100% recyclable

One of the main advantages of polyester-based fibers is that they are completely recyclable. With Auraloop® we are making another step towards sustainibility in the automotive industry.

Less foam, less pollution

One of the objectives of Auraloop® is a twofold reduction in the carbon footprint of car seat pads, currently made from polyurethane foam.

Indorama Ventures and FORVIA partnership

In the mobility sector, Indorama Ventures is already a market leader in yarns and fabrics for tires and airbags. With Auraloop®, its offer expands, not only serving the new dynamic market of car seat with a component of improved performance and comfort, but also taking into account the concept of sustainability.
