The Right Foam for the Right Job
Packing foam, cheaper pillows, outside backs & arms, used for toppers in conventional spring mattress.
Thicker furniture backs greater than 4″ thick or softer pillows. The firmness should be higher when thickness is lower. For 2″ & 3″ backs use 1118 or even better 1517.
Good furniture backs & arms. Basic occasional bedding for Camp mattresses and inexpensive bunk beds. The 1321 is a better back than the 1118. The 1338 is often used for thinner backs with buttons or tufting
Charcoal colour. Used in packaging applications and curling bumpers or foam discolouring is an issue.
For better quality backs or mattress toppers (use 1517). Basic seating used for office furniture, dinnette seats or furniture that is sold at flea markets or discount stores. Has a low cost but also has a lower performance level. Can be used for Sofa Bed mattresses or better Camp mattresses for heavier use.
For 2″ gym mats & really firm applications where thickness is limited. Used in cube ottomans, commercial or boat seating. Better quality gym mats, exercise equipment, firm edges for firmer mats.
|1828||Medium||This line is mostly used by furniture manufacturers that supply furniture to good stores. Good value for a conventional foam. Used for seating and bedding applications for full foam mattresses. Stores call it the best. We make better mattresses because we use better foam.|
|QD20||Med Soft||Qik-Dri Outdoor Foam is ideal for outdoor cushions that are exposed to the elements. However, if you are using water repellent fabric you may also want to consider Koosh Natural. It is mold and mildew resistant.|
|ECOCELL – Good 2.0 lb High Density Soy-Based Foam|
|EC26||Medium||Most manufacturers use the 1.5 lb to 1.8 lb density range for furniture seating. At 2.0 lbs per cubic foot Ecocell exceeds what is conventionally used by most furniture manufacturers. This line is good value for good furniture and bedding applications. It is less expensive than Curon and for manufacturers that think beyond comfort and design. White in colour. See Other BioFoams.|
|NEOCELL HD – Better 2.2 lb Soy-Based High Density Foam|
|NC30||Medium||NeoCell is the best High-Density foam made in Canada. This means it will outperform conventional grades in both height loss and firmness retention. Our BioFoam grades contribute to environmental awareness and preservation by reducing energy consumption and global warming. This grade is a light blue colour. The NC65 (2.5 lb density) is heavier than the rest of the line and used in better quality seating and mattresses that call for a medium compression.|
|NeoCell HD Plus (2.5 lb.)||NC65||XX-Firm||The NC65 will keep its shape longer and retain its firmness for lasting comfort and better support.|
|PRESERVE HR – Premium High Resiliency Natural Foam|
|PR18||Soft||Softer grades for premium backs or softer seat applications. This is also a high resiliency (HR) line, like Koosh Natural, but not as natural. HR foam is heavier and does not soften with use like conventional polyurethane grades. It is also more cell that allows for better air flow and cooler sleep surfaces. Preserve is a peach colour|
|KOOSH NATURAL (KN) – The Best 2.6 lb and Most Natural High Resiliency Foam|
or High-End Residential
KN11 has memory foam like properties but better. It is luxuriously soft, natural, open cell (breathes better) and not temperature sensitive like memory foam.
Koosh Natural’s unique cell structure and natural soy content sets new standards. It has a softer surface, greater comfort and support, and better fatigue resistance than conventional polyurethane foam.
Guaranteed to maintain its original shape and firmness for the life of most people’s furniture. Recommended by designers for high-end custom furniture and bedding. Koosh Natural is produced using the most stringent controls and procedures which are evident in its consistency and performance. Manufactured with no harmful chemicals or substances. Koosh Natural is light green in colour.
|QUALUX – Traditional High Resiliency Foam|
|Qualux Ultra||Q26||Medium||Qualux has been around a lot longer but it is not as natural as Koosh. It is well known by designers, contractors and architects for commercial and high end residential furniture. Before Koosh came along it was the symbol of quality cushioning throughout the furniture industry. Regular Qualux has a density range between 1.5 lbs and 1.8 lbs. Qualux Ultra has a density range between 2.0 lbs and 2.6 lbs. Qualux is gold in colour.|
|iFOAM – The Latest in Foam & Comfort Technology|
iFoam is modern smart foam that is made with Phase Changing Micro-Spheres. It maintains a consistent temperature, it is embedded with silver ions to deter bed bugs and, if you choose, it smells like chamomile and lavender.
|VISCOELASTIC – Space Age Technology For Great Pressure Relief|
|Memory Foam||KN11||Koosh Natural||
KN11 is luxuriously soft, like memory foam, but it’s not your conventional memory foam. It is High Resiliency, open cell (does not get hot), and the firmness does not change depending on your room’s temperature. It is comfortable, more supportive and less expensive than memory foam.
Memory foam relieves pressure points and improves comfort. However, it is too soft to be used all by itself. Usually, it is the comfort layer on top of another foam grade that provides the support.
Koosh is made with the most renewable resources but our ViscoSoy (VE) and Koosh ViscoGel (VG) are also made with some soy bean oil content.
|LUXURIOUS LATEX – The Original All Natural Latex Foam Rubber|
|Latex Hybrid||LH28||Medium||A mix of natural latex and polyurethane foam.|
|All Natural||LX26||Medium||100% Natural Latex derived from the rubber tree.|
|* Items in green are either all natural or made with varying degrees of renewable resources.|
