FoamTouch Upholstery Foam 2 x 24 x 72 High Density Cushion

High density foam has a compression rate of 44lbs. It features the perfect amount of cushioning and stiffness. Its soft but still holds its firmness and support for an individual to sit on it without compressing the foam too much. Compression = firmness compression (not density) is what determines firmness. If you dont want a cushion thats hard as a rock or a mattress that sinks when you sit on it, you have to check the compression or ild number. Compression means the number of pounds necessary to compress a piece of foam 25% and still bounce back to the original thickness. For example, a 4" thick piece of foam that requires 33 lbs. To pack it down 1" and have it return to its full 4" thickness has a 33 lb. Compression rating or (ild) -indention load deflection. - all foam sheets are sold per sheet - not per yard.

I recently acquired some chairs for my dining table and boy did they need some help. They were sad, uncomfortable chairs! I did a lot of research on different foams and what type is the best type for dining room chairs that will receive moderate to heavy use, and settled on this one. I knew I wanted a high density foam because it lasts longer, and I wanted firm so that over time when it softens up, it wouldn't become too soft. The price compared to similar foam was much better, and cheaper than even lesser quality foam from local craft stores. The foam arrived in a roll, wrapped in Saran Wrap type wrapping, and I unrolled it immediately so it would have time to "breathe" and become more flat so I could more easily work with it, which took about 2 days but I'm sure you could work with t sooner. I used a serrated bread knife and it cut the shapes out easily. I was a little worried because one of the previous reviews said this was soft, but mine is quite firm. We eat dinner at the table nightly, and the chairs are much more comfortable now. It does sink a little when you sit in it, but it's kind of in the way a memory foam mattress does. Nothing extreme. I am a big fan so far and hopefully it holds up as well as claimed. I will update this post a year from now with how they are holding up. I enclosed a picture of the before and after so you can have an idea of how thick or thin you are wanting your foam. 2 inches is perfect for our needs.

The foam is still holding up really well and we eat dinner at the table 5-7 nights a week and do crafts with my tots during the day. It's still firm, not sagging or lumpy and the chairs look the same as the day I refinished them. Very happy with my purchase still and definitely keeping the rating 5 stars!

Our couch had lost a lot of its support and had become almost unbearable to sit on. I purchased this foam at a cheaper price than I found in craft stores. I didn't have very high expectations to be honest. There was no smell and it was packaged nicely so no damage to the foam. I am happy I went with the high density. It feels like a new couch. We had someone stay over one night and she slept on the couch and said it made a big difference from when she had slept on it previously. Just keep in mind, high density IS very firm! There is almost no give to it. Is has been on our couch for two months and it has not softened up at all.

Purchased this to firm up the very worn down cushions on our sofa. I had bought the sofa 9 years earlier as the centerpiece to my living room, putting it through more than its fair share of TV watching, friends hanging out/napping, countless meals, and almost anything else condo living called for from my days of being a bachelor to marriage. But after all those years of faithful service, the balance of comfort and firmness significantly sunk away with my wife eyeing the [hopeful] possibility of finding a replacement living room set...

So enters the FoamTouch Cushion. Given I was just trying to add density to the cushions rather than fully replace them, the 2 in. depth was perfect. The delivery arrived promptly and within a half hour of opening the box, the pieces were cut and stuffed onto the bottom-side of the cushions with minimal mess nor effort - a basic pair of scissors will do the trick!

It's like I fell in love all over again...with the sofa. The cushions literally now sit as though they are brand new, so much so that my wife said it before I even could! And if her disappointment in their success is any indication of how well the foam works, then you'd be hard pressed to find a better replacement! My favorite sofa lives on and for pennies on the dollar!

 As I mention in my video, I used this foam to make a protective padded case for my drone. It's clearly designed for cushions and upholstery, but you can use it for many things.

I used a simple razor blade to cut the foam, and it cut like butter. Very easy to work with.

NOTE that it's not bright white like in the photo, but actually yellowed when it arrived. That didn't bother me, but you might care about such things.

It's nice foam, affordable and easy to use.

We tried this upholstery foam after being disappointed with both the quality and price of upholstery foam in the box stores. We reupholstered eight chairs for our dinning room table set. We did the first four with the very expensive foam from the box store, and were not happy with the results. My tail sunk right through, and I could tell that I was sitting on a slightly padded piece of plywood. When we tried this product, we found that the chairs were noticeably firmer, fuller in look (thicker), and much more comfortable to sit on. The 2" thick high density foam is the right product for most dining room sets. I highly recommend this product. 2" x 24" x 72" covered three chairs.

Exactly what I needed. I have a mid-quality couch that does not have the best cushions (it's now several years old). For a little over $30, I bought this upholstery foam to put under the cushions for some additional height, and more support. It was the perfect, inexpensive solution. It's a little longer than the cushion base, but the ends tuck in easily. The foam is pretty thick. It's only been a few days but so far, so good.

And as a tall person with less than perfect knees, that little extra bit of height makes getting up from the couch after sitting a while much easier.

I went with this after looking around- the cost seemed a little more in line with what I thought... If you think your couch is sagging, this may work to help! I thought that the supports were shot, but I couldn't tell for sure. Worth a try. Even if it doesn't last forever, I'm glad to buy a little more time. I cut these to fit my cushions exactly and glad I did. I've seen other tips to cut them smaller, and this looks better to me...

This worked great for the cushions we were building for our seating area!

We can't afford to buy a brand new sofa right now, but the seats were seriously sagging (not the cushions, per se, but the actual sofa). We purchased this to place directly under the cushions to see if it would provide firmer seating. It did! Last night after I installed it, my husband went to sit down and commented on the fact there was a noticeable difference.

The foam was about 5" too wide, so I did have to cut it, and the edges stuck out the front from under the cushions, so I had to trim the depth back a bit so it wasn't visible. That took all of 60 seconds to make all of those cuts.

VERY WELL PLEASED with this foam. Will it work forever? Doubtful. But I am glad I can wait a bit longer before I replace our sofa.

I used this foam in an upholstered bed bench that I made, along with some polyester batting along the top. The foam is perfect for a seat cushion that doesn't require a low cushion height, and is comfortable after installation. Over a couple of months of frequent use, there is no deformation or sagging sections in the cushion, and it still consistently rebounds after sitting on it.
