How Dryfast foam is designed with your health in mind

Blog provided by The Foam Factory

In the past, we’ve mentioned the importance of getting outdoor furniture cushions for your patio or backyard furniture. We said that Dryfast foam was the perfect material for a patio cushion because of its ability to resist the growth of microorganisms and to dry very quickly even after being drenched with rain or water. Dryfast foam’s unique manufacturing process shows the level of forethought its designers have put into ensuring the health and comfort of outdoor furniture owners.

Open-cell foams have always dried faster than closed-cell foams, but Dryfast dries even faster because its cells are larger than standard open-cell products. This is because it has been pumped with burning gasses inside a vacuum-sealed container. This process breaks down its cell walls, leaving behind a highly porous structure. Water passes through Dryfast’s porous hull easily, eliminating moisture that can breed allergens such as mold and mildew.

The Foam Factory’s Dryfast foam also has other traits that help resist allergy-causing microorganisms. Not all moisture can be eliminated by the foam’s porous structure, so our Dryfast foam uses an antimicrobial chemical treatment as an added countermeasure. Even if you leave our Dryfast foam on a surface where it has a difficult time drying, the foam’s chemical structure will make it hard for mold and mildew to grow.
