Let Foam Products Help You Paint

Filed under: Goods and Services — admin @ 1:04 pm

Beauty is held in the eye of the beholder, one of the biggest reasons the world is full of so many types of art and creativity. No matter what somebody creates, somebody somewhere will appreciate its beauty, even if that single person is the one who made it. There are no restrictions on creativity, whether it’s a traditional painting, crafts with the family, or interior design in the home. One product that helps us express our creativity in these ways and many more is foam.


Foam shapes can be used in painting in innumerable ways, with the range of textures the material entails. One of the most basic ways to foam paint is through stamping. Pre-cut foam shapes such as stars or animals can be dipped in paint or ink and used in a fun arts and crafts project with the kids, or can help accent a room instead of going with a wallpaper border. Open-cell materials are absorbent, allowing them to hold paint, which helps you dictate how light or dark each stamping appears. When torn into small pieces, foam offers more utilitarian assistance when painting, squeezing into tight door jambs and corners. Foam-tipped brushes are sold in craft and hardware stores for various purposes, attesting to the versatility foam offers when painting.


Closed-cell foam, meanwhile, can be used when painting to create much more consistent patterns, being much more solid than open-cell foam. These are great for creating your own custom stamps, as their consistency makes them excellent for detailed work when cutting and carving your shapes. Foam cylinders meanwhile, can work much like paint rollers, and depending on the smoothness and surface of the foam used, you can get unique patterns from these as well.

The Secret to Making Great Furniture

Filed under: Goods and Services — admin @ 7:33 am

Perhaps Goldilocks echoed what most furniture shoppers are looking for when she said that baby bear’s bed was ‘not too hard, not too soft, just right!’. That is why most of the top mattress and pillow manufacturers spend thousands, if not millions of dollars looking for the perfect foam manufacturers. In the battle for comfort supremacy, market players are looking for the right firm that can provide them materials that fit the ‘Goldilocks standard’.

In modern times, we have moved from using lumpy and uncomfortable feather filled mattresses and pillows to more cost effective and technologically superior polyurethane foam sheets. This type of cushion is not only more sustainable but it is also more flexible in adapting to various needs and applications. For example, there are six different foam compositions for varying applications. Thefurniture foam includes the super soft line which is used in providing additional comfort and support such as in mattress toppers or additional seat padding, the HD36 line which is high density foam that is used for various applications that need firmness for more vigorously used furniture such as couches, benches and seats, and the Lux line for foam applications that require extra support while remaining sufficiently firm that are used moderately such as sleeping mattresses, recliners and recreational products like camping pads.

Bottom line is that a top notch manufacturer of goods that require cushions or foam needs to find an experienced and reliable partner with sound expertise in foam manufacturing.

Leverage Your Money Better with Foam Prototyping

Filed under: Goods and Services — admin @ 1:24 pm

For start-up companies or businesses running on razor-thin budgets in today’s economy, innovation and new products can provide a huge income boost or streamline a costly process, but often carry a degree of risk that can be too much for a company to wager. In the instance of physical products, this is often due to the cost of creating a prototype, whether it’s the most basic variety to analyze physical possibilities, or an advanced creation for pitches to investors. Ideally, prototypes are one of the initial steps that help companies assess practicality and solidify ideas, but depending on the company and its financial situation, prototyping can be costly and hurt sustainability if it doesn’t come through the way it was planned.

Fortunately, there are choices in prototyping that don’t have to break the bank, particularly in the early stages of product development. For simulating the size or scale of a product or market potential, profile cut foam materials are excellent prototyping mediums because they can minimize development costs while maximizing potential.

Imagine you’re about to present your conceptual idea to an investor or project supervisor. If all you really need to do is convey a visual understanding of physical size and scope and not specific details, using foam materials or foam rubber blocks that have been cut to size can be much more affordable than investing in more expensive materials requiring unnecessary overhead. This is particularly important in early stages of development when a product concept is all that needs to be approved, and details can be added later in the process.

Even if your company is already one that specializes in foam manufacturing, foam prototyping can still generate savings if the right materials are used. A design for a new pillow or comfort cushion can ultimately be intended to be a memory foam product, but if you’re only assessing how an idea on paper translates to the foam medium, more affordable substitutes can be used to make early mock-ups without wasting more expensive materials. A cheaper foam can be used to make the form and test machining capabilities, and only after has it met your satisfaction, do you need to begin recreating the product with memory foam. To get even the smartest ideas off the ground, creativity and planning is required, and using foam prototyping is one way to get to where you need to go.

Foam Futon Cushions Offer Affordability and Versatility

Filed under: Goods and Services — admin @ 1:57 pm

Futons are used for many different reasons; some out of necessity, and others by choice. They offer a degree of versatility to people with living arrangements that don’t allow traditional furniture systems. And while utilitarian, the right futon can also give a user a combination of style, practicality, and comfort that’s hard to rival. Others simply just like their functionality and affordability over traditional pieces of furniture, even when they have the money and space to go conventional with their décor. No matter why you go with a futon, you should be able to find one that’s just as comfortable as a singular bed or couch.

Entry-level futons are college dorm standards, typically padded with a cushion that’s stuffed with cotton or polyester filling. This folding-bed-with-mattress setup is usually sufficient for cash-strapped students who will use and abuse it, and then trash it after graduation. But even for bargain-level futon frames, premium foam cushioning can transform a futon into something luxurious that will provide a much more enjoyable experience.

One of the most comfortable additions to a futon is a memory foam pad. Just like with traditional bedding, memory foam offers pressure relief as the foam forms to the body’s contours; a terrific experience for relaxing or sleeping. Memory foam can easily be tossed on to make a custom foam futon mattress, either as a solid slab for a firmer experience, or shredded foam packed into a cover for a more cushioning pad.

Other foam products great for futon comfort are Talalay latex mattresses. Latex foam forms to your body’s contours in spring-like fashion for immediate response to your movements. It is an aerating product that breathes as you move and keeps cool, due to its open-cell structure and pin-core design.

Get a Custom Mattress for Perfectly Personalized Sleep

Filed under: Goods and Services — admin @ 1:54 pm

Due to the time we spend on them and the importance of a good night’s sleep, your mattress is one of the most important investments in life. But because of the high price tags on something we don’t “actively” use, many people try and cut corners on cost and get something of poor quality, which is reflected in their sleep. Other people simply have a problem finding the right mattress even when price isn’t a consideration. Fortunately, you can personalize your mattress in a way that meets your budgetary, comfort, and support needs, all in one product.

The easiest and most affordable way to customize your mattress is with a mattress topper. Typically made of foam materials, these thick pads are placed on top of the mattress to create a unique comfort layer. The great thing about conventional or memory foam toppers is that by the time you’ve decided you want one, you’ll already know how you want your bed to feel. If your bed is too firm, get a soft topper and sleep better! Foam pad bed toppers can be placed on any mattress type, from conventional innersprings to waterbeds or even futons. They extend the life of a mattress that is still structurally sound but not as comfortable as you would like it to be.

If you’ve decided you want to purchase an entire mattress, customization can be had from top to bottom. Because of the different materials, firmnesses, and sizes foam makes available, it’s easy to build and order a mattress tailored to your needs. Many companies construct mattresses from individual sheets of foam, creating a hybrid bed for the pickiest sleepers. If purchased without the sheets glued together, you can move each layer around, creating a different mattress with every combination. You can rearrange the layers and change the mattress as your tastes change too. If you’re considering ordering a new mattress, you have plenty of options at your disposal to get the sleep you need.

Cushion Hard Furniture with a Foam Pad Cushion

Filed under: Goods and Services — admin @ 7:57 pm

One of the greatest tragedies of home design and interior decoration is when the most beautiful furniture is also the most uncomfortable, keeping it from ever being used. Wooden furniture tends to be one of the biggest offenders in this situation, as it can be beautifully crafted but lack even the most basic comfort qualities. If you have furniture like this in your home, all is not lost as foam furniture cushions can redeem even the most unpleasant pieces of furniture.

Cushions for furniture are a seemingly over-simple solution, yet they represent the most effective way to get comfort without compromising appearances. Cushions can be produced from any number of foam materials; the softest foam for plush pads, to firm materials that offer a balance of support and comfort. They are easily customized to the shape of the chair they are going to pad and can be made as thick or thin as needed. The cheap-and-easy solutions from big box stores are typically under-stuffed with non-resilient polyester fiber filling that will break down quickly. For maximum comfort and long-term durability, customized cushions from an upholsterer or fabricator are the smart decision.

Custom cushions can be made with virtually any fabric covering to match your home’s styling. They can even feature accents like buttoning or welting. The best part of custom-made cushions is that they are completely removable when not in use. You can have comfort when you’re using the furniture, and then store them when you aren’t, maintaining the aesthetics of the room. If your furniture has a look that you love but comfort you don’t, investing in foam chair cushions gets you the best of both worlds.
