Experience the Extraordinary Performance of IsoGel®

IsoGel® – A unique super soft viscous polymer that provides superior properties for cushioning and comfort products that has been around for over 15 years. Pittsburgh Plastics Manufacturing, the originator of liquid gel insoles and the current leader in liquid filled plastics, began development of its unique polymer system to produce the next generation in comfort products. The IsoGel® idea started with investigating a non-flowing polymer gel for use in cushioning pads and insoles to isolate the user from the everyday pressure and impact effects while running, walking, and sitting. After months of experimentation and testing, Pittsburgh Plastics Manufacturing’s Research and Development team found the perfect formulation.

Today, IsoGel® is the paramount name for comfort, cushioning, and feel. Continued work by Pittsburgh Plastics Manufacturing’s Research and Development team allows for production of multiple variations to the original IsoGel® system. Our research with different additives and formulations provides complete customization of the IsoGel® polymer system to fit any application.
