How Dryfast Foam is Revolutionizing the Outdoor Furniture Cushion Industry

The best outdoor furniture cushions should be engineered for the unique set of circumstances experienced by outdoor objects. Unlike indoor furniture cushions, which focus on comfort and aesthetics, outdoor furniture cushions have to contend with moisture and extremes in weather. Since moisture, UV rays, and harmful microorganisms all have the potential to damage outdoor furniture cushions, manufacturers must respond to these challenges by crafting a product that addresses these specific issues. For this reason, The Foam Factory has developed Dryfast Foam.

Dryfast Foam is constructed from an extremely porous type of polyurethane foam which is made by special chemical processes. One method for creating Dryfast Foam involves immersing the foam in a caustic fluid to break down its cell walls. Another method involves placing the foam in a vacuum-sealed container and quickly passing it through a flame to melt the cell walls without weakening the foam’s main structure. These patented techniques allow the foam to dry extremely quickly, even after being completely soaked.

Quick drying is an essential advantage for foam in outdoor cushions because it means rain or a buildup of moisture from the air cannot damage your cushions or provide a breeding ground for fungi such as mold and mildew. Mold and mildew thrive on moist surfaces, and the presence of these microorganisms can cause allergic reactions in people with mold allergies. Sneezing, coughing, and runny noses are a few of the irritating reactions people with mold allergies experience, so it’s important to prevent the buildup of harmful fungi to avoid discomfort and even asthma attacks in the worst cases.

Dryfast Foam also has added measures against microorganisms, since the formula it is constructed from is antimicrobial. Not only does the foam inhibit the growth of fungi, but it also prevents bacteria from growing on the foam’s surface, making your outdoor cushions more hygienic to use. Since Dryfast Foam is more porous than the average foam cushion material, it is also easier to clean, which prevents the buildup of dirt, dust, and other germ-covered particles. Just take advantage of its features by rinsing your outdoor cushions and letting them dry within 1 to 3 hours.
