- Environment effect: Foam has been subjected to many laboratories testing, and it has confirmed to meet every content standard, durability and emission. This voluntary testing is referred to as CertiPUR-US which involves certification and analysis program set up by the world Flexible Polyurethane Foam (FPF) industry. This certification implies that foam fill is guaranteed for the following attribute:

This also signifies economic usage of the foam to offer long span enjoyment with little or no maintenance. For example, the density of 1m x 1m x 1m foam cube is 40kg. The higher the density the better it becomes. However, there are different foam densities in the market to fit into every purpose, depending on the application. - Firmness: This indicates how firm or soft you may like your cushion foam to be. Firmness is mainly determined by the Indentation Force Deflection (ILD) number. The number ranges from 6 to 45, the higher the indentation number, the higher the foam firmness. However, foam firmness is a matter of choice based on personal delight.
