Frequently Asked Questions
Can Square Foam and Rectangle Foam be cut in any size?
Foam sizes have limitations. Foam is manufactured in blocks, normally six feet wide and eight feet long. When there is a need for the foam to be larger, the foam must be glued together. Different foam types are manufactured in different foam block sizes so there is no exact limitation when custom cutting foam in different foam types. Foam also has limitations on its thickness. As an example, Latex Rubber Foam is manufactured in a maximum of six-inch thickness. As such, if a foam block is ordered in Latex at eight inches thick, it would have to be laminated to achieve the finished height.
What are the common uses of Square Foam and Rectangle Foam?
Square foam has the same width and length, while rectangular foam has a longer length than width. Square foam is commonly used for seat cushions and foam packaging for shipping, whereas rectangular foam is commonly used in foam mattresses. Foam blocks are manufactured in large sizes to accommodate custom-cut foam to any desired size within the limitations of the manufactured foam.
What foam type should I choose for my application?
There are many different foam types available and it can be difficult to decipher which is appropriate for your application. Each foam has common uses but there is no foam that is all-encompassing.
