When ordering foam online, there are many important facts to consider. Price is always a key factor but make sure you are getting a good quality. Many vendors offer a low price with free shipping but give you a cheap quality foam product. Foam N’ More has high quality furniture grade foam that is a 2.8lb density. Most of our competitors only carry 2.6 or lower which will not be long lasting leaving you to reorder again soon.
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. Firmness and lifespan of foam products like mattresses and cushions depend on many factors that are not just limited to density of the foam.Please note: the density of our foam may vary slightly between each foam shipment.
ILD or IFD measures the firmness of how hard or soft a foam is. The higher the number of the foam is, the firmer the foam is. This also represents how many pounds the foam will hold before it can and will collapse.
ILD/IFD Example: when using a block of Luxury Firm High Density foam 12″ x 12″ x 12″ the ILD for that particular foam is 50. If you put an item that exceeds 50 lbs onto the foam then the block of foam will collapse and compress to the bottom.
This Luxury-Firm foam grade is very firm and high density. This kind of foam has rubber based characteristics; which means it will not break down like ordinary foam. It will maintain its original shape and density for many years.
