The Right Foam for the Right Job

Please note

1. The Life Expectancy, in the table below, is only an estimate derived from laboratory tests such as ISO-Pounding and the Roller Shear test. Actual results may vary depending on size of people and use.

2. The white polyurethane foam grades will keep their shape for the estimated time but will soften with use quicker than High Resiliency grades like Koosh Natural.

* Life Expectancy

ISO-Pounding and the Roller Shear flex fatigue tests are performed to determine foam durability, or how well foam retains its firmness and height properties after repeated compression. They are also used to grade the various foams for sale. They help predict the performance of the foam in actual cushioning and bedding applications. In the case of ISO-Pounding the sample is repeatedly pounded.

In the Roller Shear test an average weight of 170 lbs. is repeatedly rolled over a foam sample from two directions, typically for about 25,000 cycles, in the same spot for thousands of cycles. The compression or height loss is measured at various intervals to help determine the life expectancy of each foam grade.

* Please Note:
  1. The last 2 numbers represent the firmness of the foam. The higher the number the firmer the foam will feel.
  2. The foam will feel softer when you sit on it as opposed to when you lay on it in a mattress application. This is due to more weight being concentrated in a smaller area. Choose Firmness based on use.
  3. Know that 80% of seat cushions made are between Medium (26 ILD) and Firm (45 ILD) based on a 4" thick cushion.
  4. A thinner foam, in the same firmness (ILD), will feel softer than a thicker piece. Base your foam firmness on your desired thickness.
  5. The soft grades are used for backs or seat and mattress toppers when you layer 2 or more different firmness.
