High density foam is used for a variety of different applications. It helps to provide support in seating and is often found used as a base layer in memory foam mattresses. Compared to foam types with a lower density, high density foam is known for its sturdiness and longevity.
It is common to believe that high density foam is inherently firm. This, however, is not the case. High density foam can range from a firm feel to a soft feel. In fact, the density of foam is determined through its weight per cubic foot. The more compact the cell structure of a foam grade, the higher the density of it.
High Density Foam – Determining Foam Density
To calculate the density of a piece of foam you must divide the weight of a piece by what the length, width, and height multiplies to. The calculation would look like this – Weight ÷ Width x Height x Length = Density.
The density is determined by weighing one cubic foot (12” x 12” x 12”) of the foam grade and performing the previously mentioned calculation.
To be considered high density foam, the foam must weigh more than 6 pounds per cubic foot. High density foam is generally considered to last longer than foam with a low density. That is why it is often used within good quality pieces of furniture. The higher the density, the heavier the foam will be. Foam with a high density will be more difficult to move around than low density foam but should prove to last longer because of the greater amount of compressed material.
