The Pros of Using Dry Fast Foam

Dry Fast FoamWritten by: The Foam Factory

Dry fast foam is a type of open-celled foam used often for seating in boats or even planes. The pores that are spread throughout allow for moisture and air to pass through, preventing buildup and water retention. This type of foam is a lot softer and cooler than ordinary foam.

One of the primary concerns that boat owners have, when it comes to their seats, is the fact that mold and mildew can easily grow all around their cushions. Dryfast foam is manufactured with an antimicrobial agent that resists the growth of bacteria and also mold – also they’re designed to be easily cleaned. So your seats won’t be mildew-laden every time you return home from a fishing trip.

If you have purchased a block of dryfast foam, you might need to trim it down to the correct sizing. The preferred tools to use for an even cut would be a foam cutter or an electric knife. By using these tools, you can minimize the risk of damaging the foam and possibly ruining it.

If you have separate pieces of foam already cut, you can glue them together using a spray adhesive. By doing so, you can form larger pieces or make an entirely new shape.

There are various other foam products that are designed for high-moisture usage such as marine foam cushions. Also providing resistance to water damage and microbial growth, they are a solid alternative if dryfast foam is not for you. Remember to look for quality over the price tag as it will benefit you in the long run.
