Foam is Easy to Shape to Fit Cushioning Needs

For ease of handling foam in furniture or bedding manufacturing, strength properties are important. Foam strength is evaluated in the laboratory using standardized tensile, tear and elongation tests. These tests determine the foam's ability to be stretched or flexed without tearing. Most grades of flexible foam are highly elastic, and can be easily shaped to fit cushioning needs.
