Top uses of foam padding

Written by Foam Factory, Inc.

Foam padding is one of the ubiquitous products available today. It has many uses, both home, and commercial. Here are some of the most popular uses for foam, ranging from mattresses to dog beds Canada:

Foam padding is used extensively for mattresses and mattress toppers. The most popular of the foams used in mattresses are memory foam. Several types of foam can make multiple layers on the same mattress to provide different levels of comfort.

This is the next most popular use of foam. Most foam types applicable for cushions have enough density for a DIY enthusiast to use at home. They are easy to cut and shape for any household use.

Closed cell foam is perfect for outdoor furniture due to its water resistant properties. Unlike other foam, a gas is sealed within the foam, which prevents any liquid from penetrating the surface.

Fitness and exercise related products use a range of different foam products. The most popular two are foam rollers and yoga mats. Foam rollers are high-density foam sheets molded to a cylinder. Yoga mats are flexible foam products that cushion a harder surface.

Packing

Finally, foam padding is used extensively as a packing material. Harder foams are used for large items while softer foam padding is used for fragile and light items.
