Can Charcoal Firm Foam be custom cut to fit my items?
The best way to cut the open cell foam is with a sharp knife or electric turkey knife, just repeat in 1 direction over and over again in one direction to get a clean cut. Please note that if you order these size sheets they may be bigger than the actual size as listed.
Please note: When comparing different types of foam with other companies it is most important to look at the density and ILD of the foam.
Foam density is a specific measurement of how much weight in pounds polyurethane foam can handle per cubic foot. This density rating tells you the strength of the foam. The higher the number, the longer the foam will last. It should not be used exclusively as a sign of durability or comfort, because the firmness and lifespan of foam products just like mattresses and cushions depend on many factors, including density. The density may vary slightly between each foam shipment.
ILD or IFD measurement firmness of how hard or soft a foam is. The higher number the foam is, the firmer the foam is. Also represents how many pounds the foam will hold before it collapses. If you take a 12″ x 12″ x 12″ foam cube after the certain ILD is reached, that foam will collapse.
We vacuum pack the foam to reduce shipping costs. You will have to give the foam 1-2 days to return to its original shape. It will look a little misshaped and not measure to correct size until it expands.
