Flexible Polyurethane Foam Slide Presentation


Slide 21 of 31

In foam cushioning, two things can affect support. They are foam density amd production technology. Foam density is important because usually the higher the density of the foam the better its support. There's simply more material available to provide performance. The other factor affecting support is production technology including the chemical formulation and manufacturing process. Some very soft foams with high densities can be created through chemical or mechanical systems that alter cell structure to allow a foam to be both soft and supportive. Filler materials can also be added during production to increase support.
