Foam is a malleable, versatile material with properties that make it suitable for a variety of projects. You might find foam in a patio cushion, a mattress, a soundproofing panel at a recording studio, or even in a pet bed. However, using foam outdoors carries a unique set of challenges.
Foam is often used for outdoor furniture cushions, which means it will be subject to nature and the elements. Rain, moisture, sunlight, and harmful microorganisms are all capable of ruining the average foam cushion. For this reason, outdoor foam is usually engineered to have special properties that protect it from the elements. For example, Dryfast foam is designed to dry quickly even after being completely soaked. Its open-cell structure allows water to pass through without absorption, and its antimicrobial properties stop bacteria, mold, and mildew from growing on its surface.
In contrast, indoor foam is designed mainly for comfort or support and the different types of indoor foam allow you to choose from your preferred level of firmness or softness. Firmer types of foam are denser and last longer, so they are ideal if you need foam that is more durable. In contrast, softer types of foam won’t last as long, but they’ll be more relaxing to recline on.
