How Does Dryfast Foam Work?
A majority of conventional foams operate like a sponge, absorbing and holding water. This is a significant issue in situations where the comfort of foam is wanted in a damp or marine environment. Water held within conventional foam forms, like custom outdoor cushions, can cause these products to rot, mold, and mildew. Luckily, a special type of foam exists that is designed exclusively for marine or outdoor uses: fast-dying foam.
Also known as dryfast foam, this product is the perfect material for a custom marine foam bed or patio cushions. Made with incredibly large pores, dryfast has an almost wiry appearance that you can see right into. Conventional foams feature cells fractions of that size that you can barely see. This wide-open cellular structure allows water to pass and drain through the form, rather than be retained like traditional materials. Air can easily pass through the foam too, quickly drying the material, giving you a durable and water resistant cushion, especially when covered in a breathable outer fabric.
Dryfast foam is also treated to be antimicrobial, a very important factor for things like a boat mattress that may get wet but doesn’t have the opportunity to dry. Even aiming a fan at a dampened dryfast foam cushion can help dry it out.
Despite its massive cells, quick-drying foam is durable and supportive, so your boat cushions or seating pads won’t wear out under you. If you have comfort needs in damp environments, quick-drying foam is just what you want.
