How Foam Density is Rated

All Foam is not Created Equal Density, measured in pounds per cubic foot,  is the key property for determining flexible foam performance. The firmness of the foam does not determine its quality, price or durability.Density relates to the comfort, support and durability properties of the foam.Adding cheaper foam additives or fillers can alter density. Additives are used to make a […]
