What does convoluted foam mean?
Then, what is convoluted foam made of?
Convoluted foam was designed as an inexpensive method of doubling foam production. By splitting the foam in half and carving points into it (like an egg crate), you get two 4 inch thick sheets of foam out of one 4 inch thick sheet of foam.
Secondly, what is the difference between foam and memory foam? Back to foam vs. memory foam: So foams are made through several processes but memory foam is an open cell structure that is more dense. Memory foam has been manipulated to be more dense and of course over time to be cooler and more responsive than your typical furniture foam or pure foam which can be made very cheaply.
Also question is, why are foam mattresses bad?
During the process of making a memory, foam polyurethane is often mixed. The number of other toxic chemicals include many harmful compounds. Polyvinyl chloride, formaldehyde, boric acid, antimony trioxide and different types of petrochemicals. This makes foam mattresses very harmful.
Which type of foam mattress is best?
As with polyurethane foam, memory foam is commonly made with fire retardant chemicals. We strongly believe that latex foam is, by far, the best type of foam to use in mattresses. Latex foam offers several significant advantages over Polyurethane foam and Memory foam.
