Understanding The Density Of Memory Foam
People often buy a number of foam products and choose the material for all kinds of upholstery projects. But determining the density is crucial as it will let you know what to buy.
The density rating of memory foam actually corresponds to how much visco -elasticity is present in the foam. It means, the lower the density rating, the lower amount of raw material has actually been used to make the memory foam layer. If the density rating of a memory foam is lower, it indicates that the air cavities or cells are much bigger.
On the contrary, when the density becomes higher, the foam naturally is heavier. Higher density memory foams are perfect for upholstery projects. This is because they are harder to wear down and can determine the life span of the mattress. In addition, high density memory foam provides the best skeletal/muscular support for the users.
High quality mattresses
As a high quality mattress with a high density rating will feel sumptuous and full bodied, lower quality and density ratings will pale in comparison. It is worth to note, that this does not indicate how firm the memory bed will be. The leading manufacturers of memory foam mattresses with high density visco-elastic foam can and do change and alter how firm their mattresses are regardless of the density level.
It is important to keep in mind when purchasing a foam because most of the manufacturers who produce low density products make the memory foam feel firmer to customers forcing to think that the products have a higher density rating. It is inevitable that cell structure of mattresses with lower density rating will wear down easier and faster and can cause the memory bed to lose its shape very quickly.
Whenever you consider to purchase foam for upholstery projects, a good rule of thumb is to look for companies that offer a very comprehensive and long warranty or guarantee. Most of the foam manufacturers with lower density may not offer much more than 12 months.
The actual density rating can be determined by the weight of the memory foam in cubic metres, which is why it is written as a weight, for example 85kg/m3. If you are not much familiar with modern measurements and prefer imperial measurements, it is basically the same calculation by weighing a cube of memory foam measure 1 foot each way. Imperially, the density is displayed in pounds, for example 5.3lbs.
Understand the firmness and weight of a memory foam, so that you can achieve the best quality in your upholstery furniture pieces in Sydney.
