Frequently Asked Questions
What is Density and why is it important?
Density is the weight of the foam and is found by weighing a 12" square cube of foam in pounds (English not Metric). Higher density foams will be more resilient and durable than lower density foams. Both products may feel similar if their ILD's are similar, but there is no doubt that higher density products give better durability.
What is the ILD?
ILD stands for Indention Load Deflection, and by knowing the ILD you can tell how firm the foam is. The ILD is the force (in pounds) required to compress a 50-inch indenter foot into a 4-inch thick sample 25% of its overall height. The lower the ILD the softer the foam is, and the higher the ILD the firmer the foam is. Foams that have similar ILDs will feel similar even if their density is different.
Will Memory Foam feel firmer if the overall temperature of a room is low?
Yes, memory foam is a temperature sensitive material. Memory foam is designed to get softer as your body heat raises the temperature of the foam. If the memory foam is used in a room that is colder than 60 degrees, however, it will feel a lot firmer, but will soften when body heat warms the foam during sleep.
Can the difference between the various densities of Memory Foam be felt, and if it can, why are you selling higher density Memory Foam instead of lower density Memory Foam?
The main difference is both in price and in performance. Higher density memory foam equals higher performance and a higher price. Lower density memory foam is still good, but prices will be lower. When the memory foam is denser, it will have more support, and will conform to your body more. Higher density memory foams are designed for better performance and a longer comfort life.
Why does Foam turn yellow as it ages?
All foam oxidizes, and will turn yellow as it ages. (Like when a penny becomes darker over time.) This is a completely natural process that the memory foam goes through, and in no way impairs from the effectiveness of the memory foam material.
When I add a Memory Foam topper to my existing mattress will I need to buy new sheets, and if so, where can I find sheets that will fit the new depth?
When adding depth to any mattress it generally requires that some changes will have to be made to your linens in order to accommodate the new fit. Either you can place a sheet over the topper, or you can buy new deep-pocketed sheets. Deep-pocketed sheets are made up to 27" deep and can be found in many stores that carry bed linens.
Is all Memory Foam Fire Retardant?
Not all memory foam products on the market comply with the California 117 requirements. However, our memory foam products do pass Cal TB117. Although not everyone in the country lives in California, we have decided to give that added value nationwide.
In general, when you are buying any type of foam and want to know its life span, it is totally dependent on the weight. The heaver the foam the longer it will keep its firmness.
