An Overview
Foam mattresses and foam mattress toppers are available in a wide range of foam qualities and firmness. The idea of foam for mattresses and foam firmness makes for a large selection to choose from. Just to buy a foam mattress may seem confusing. Not to mention the many different names associated with the same foam types. To simplify which foam for a mattress is the right mattress foam and what is polyurethane. It is important to first judge the foam density of a mattress. Foam density is the weight of foam per cubic foot to measure mattress foam quality not foam firmness. Low weight urethane foam at 1.2 to 1.5 pounds per cubic foot is a cheap foam quality. Medium weight high density foam at 1.8 to 1.9 pounds per cubic foot is medium quality foam, and the heaver weight evlon foam at 2.0 to 2.2 pounds per cubic foot is good foam. Heavy high resilience foam at 2.5 to 3.0 pounds per cubic foot is excellent quality foam. Lastly very heavy memory foam at approximately 2.0 to 6.0 pounds per cubic foot can range from good foam to excellent foam. These are all polyurethane foam types where foam mattress weight determines foam quality comfort and longevity. Urethane foam is where you buy a foam mattress when looking for a reasonable priced foam mattress or foam mattress pad. Memory foam is pricy compared to other polyurethane foam mattresses.

Latex mattress foam is well placed in the foam industry due to the foam mattresses proven performance in maximum longevity and superior comfort.
