RIGIFOAM was established in 2000 with its head office located at 3 Detroit Street, Apex, Benoni. We are already recognized in the industry as the leading manufacturer of high quality polyurethane products. Our range of products include profiled polyurethane foam, 2 component urethane systems and LAMBDABOARD. The manufacturing process is composed of personnel with good skills.
In 2009 we received our ISO 9001 accreditation with international company DQS. Our ability to control the production process is good as evidenced by our reputation for quality products.
Because of our small size (compared to local based multi-national competitors), RIGIFOAM has capabilities to limit competition, especially for our new products, so we intend to compete on a cost leadership basis. Alternatively, our small size, good profitability and strong technical expertise allow us considerable freedom to act independently.
RIGIFOAM has a strong commitment to the marketplace and we are confident we have the ability to maintain growth in the polyurethane/insulation business, develop and market laminated products as a highly differentiated product.
RIGIFOAM, manufacturers of (discontinuous) Polyurethane and Polyisocyanurate Block Foam. We offer a range of densities from 32kg/m3 to 80kg/m3. With the aid of computerised profile cutters, material can be supplied in any 2-dimensional shape, from flat sheet to pipe insulation. RIGIFOAM was the first to introduce "OZONE FRIENDLY" foam in South Africa, with continuous innovations and product research, RIGIFOAM remains the market leader.
Resichem, a sister company within the Rigifoam group, was founded by the shareholders of Rigifoam in 2001.
With more than 90 man years of PU foam formulating and application experience in the group, over the past 10 years Resichem has captured the major market share of the Southern African PU foam systems market, excluding domestic refrigerators.
LAMBDABOARD is a flexible faced Polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation board made on a continuous laminator. The polyisocyanurate cored insulation uses a hydrocarbon-based blowing agent which has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and complies with Kyoto Protocol regarding Global Warming Potential (GWP). LAMBDABOARD insulation is the answer to HCFC and HFC free insulation.
Decoboard, created by Lambdaboard, a premier insulation brand by Rigifoam, is launching its new tongue-and-groove ceiling board, an affordable ceiling and loft insulation that improves thermal thermal efficiency. Designers are continually looking to deliver cost-effective options for insulation that protect against fire and improve thermal performance and excellent fire-protection characteristics.
Property developers, YoHome, envisioned their latest residential development in Benoni, Gauteng, as a lifestyle space where people can live and relax in a safe environment.
Lambdaboard, a flexible faced polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation board made on a continuous laminator, is an insulation solution used in many world-class local development projects. Lyle Jeffery, national sales manager at Rigifoam, says the over-purlin application is currently the most widely used application method for the product.
