Choosing Foam For Your Outdoor Cushions
Below are our foam recommendations for outdoor cushions. These foams should be selected in a firm firmness to ensure that the foam maintains its shape and does not form lumps over time. For an extra plush and soft look and feel, Dacron can be glued to the foam with spray adhesive.
Dry Fast Foam: The best foam for outdoor cushions and seats is Dry Fast foam. As the name suggests, Dry Fast foam drys quickly when it comes in contact with water, even if fully saturated. This is because of its large porous open-cell construction that makes water pass through, gives it excellent airflow for quick-drying, and prevents mildew, mold, and rot. Additionally, the foam is produced with antimicrobial properties. As such, the seat cushions will not contain any bacteria or microorganisms that grow in damp environments and could be harmful. This ensures a safe and comfortable seating environment for you and your family.
High Resilience Foam: If your patio is covered by a solid roof that prevents rain and sunlight rays from entering, then our recommendation is High Resilience foam in a firm. This foam type is very comfortable and durable, making it long-lasting and resistant to outside elements. High Resilience foam will last much longer and be much more comfortable than what the average patio furniture comes with. Its resilient and durable open-cell construction will ensure your cushions stay plush and comfortable year-round.
Latex Foam: Its rubber construction makes Latex foam absorb much smaller amounts of moister than other foam types, so it dries quicker. Additionally, like Dry Fast Foam, it is resistant to mold and mildew. Latex foam is very durable, and will last for decades when used as cushions. However, it is more expensive than other foam.
