Visco elastic foam or Memory foam is a sophisticated product that consistently recovers its original shape following compression.
This type of foam responds to heat, increasing its flexibility with increasing temperature. In this way, the foam takes the heat of the body and adapts to its shape, giving adequate and complete support to the entire surface.
Developed by NASA under the brand name Canfor foam in the 1980s, it was then launched into the wider market in the 1990s, when it was known as Visco-Elastic foam. It is now widely recognized as memory foam, which is primarily used in mattresses and pillows.
Visco foam is on par with international standards. The Visco foam has a very unique soft feel due to its special properties. Its recovery time is between 5 to 7 seconds and resilience is less than 20%. These properties make it a popular choice in the home furnishing Segment.
The products made with Visco foam generally are Pillows, Mattress toppers, Sandwich mattresses, Sofa, Cushions, Bolsters, Chair pads etc…. We make Visco foam is 40 and 65 kgs/m3.
FEATURES OF MEMORY FOAM
They respond to pressure and temperature. It softens in reaction to your body heat. However, each product and composition has varying degrees of temperature sensitivity. The more sensitive the foam is, the more it will soften and hug’ your body and can contour to each individual’s body shape by reacting to the body temperature.
When pressure is applied to memory foam, it softens and takes the shape of the body. After the pressure is removed, it takes time for the foam to return to its original state. This response time depends on many factors such as composition, the rate of elasticity, variable viscosity, and resilience.
Durability is an important factor to consider, no matter what product you are using. In the case of memory foam, durability is directly dependent on density.
