Curious How Dryfast Foam Works? Wonder No More!
Most of the conventional foam used in the home is like a sponge; absorbing and retaining water if it gets wet. This usually isn’t a problem, since it doesn’t rain very often in our living rooms. But in a situation where moisture is constantly present, like aboard a boat, this absorbency can be a problem. Water, when retained within conventional foam used as custom outdoor cushions, will cause the foam to rot, mold, and mildew. Fortunately, a unique type of foam has been engineered that is specially designed to drain and dry quickly, perfect for marine or outdoor uses.
Known as dryfast foam, this reticulated foam material is the perfect cushioning product for custom marine foam bedding or patio cushions. Formed with incredibly large pores, dryfast foam appears to be wiry and can even be looked into, given the expansive size of the cells. In comparison, conventional foam cells are only a fraction of the size of Dryfast. Having cells this size allows water to drain through the material instead of being retained. Air is also able to pass through easily, accelerating the drying process as well. With these performance characteristics, Dryfast remains a supportive and comfortable material, meaning you have a material for the perfect outdoor cushion.
Dryfast foam is also formulated to be antimicrobial, which is an important consideration in outdoor or marine cushioning, since these applications may get wet easily, but aren’t always offered a quick way to dry. Something as easy as aiming a fan at dampened Dryfast foam will help speed up the process if it’s taking particularly long to dry.
As previously mentioned, dryfast is resilient and comfortable, so you don’t have to make comfort concessions just to have a material that will stand up to demanding use. If you need performance in a damp environment, you need fast drying foam.
