Foam

JOANN carries two types of foam, and even though they can both used for reupholstering, there are a few key differences between the two.  High-Density Foam is a type of polyurethane foam that is composed of large amounts of bubbles that are packed tightly together. NuFoam  is a safe alternative to conventional foam that is made from densified polyester batting. Let’s review some key features of both types of foam.

Key features:

Foam Tips & Tricks:
  •   The denser the foam, the longer is will retain its shape.
  •   When using foam to reupholster boats, campers or any other outdoor usesz, NuFoam is recommended, since it won’t mildew. 
  •   NuFoam will compress overtime so recommending a 1” thicker than intended will help with keeping its shape longer. (This will be a snug fit)
  •   Both High-Density and NuFoam are non-allergenic and should be cut using an electric knife.
