Foam Density (PCF) & Foam Firmness
Related to durability, strength & support, density refers to the internal structure of foam & is defined as the weight in pounds of one cubic foot of material or pounds per cubic foot (PCF).
It is important to note that foam density is not a measurement of foam firmness, as firm foam is not always high-density.
New England Foam stocks foam ranging in density from 0.9 PCF to 9 PCF.
New England Foam can combine different types of foam, each varying in size, shape & density.
For custom designed foam products, New England Foam requires the length, width & height of each foam product in inches.
Foam Color Coding
Foam is traditionally color-coded during the manufacturing process for aesthetic purposes, to identify a particular product grade & to prevent yellowing from visible, ultraviolet & x-ray light exposure.
New England Foam stocks dozens of different colors of foam including those most requested: white (natural), black (charcoal), gray, red, blue, green, yellow, purple, pink (anti-static) & multicolored (rebond).
To increase the aesthetic appeal of fabricated foam products, New England Foam stocks foam flocking in dozens of different colors; each complement the finished “look” & “feel” of fabricated foam products.
