Open cell reticulated foam is known for its’ open pore structure that allows air and water to flow through easily. This free-flowing structure is designed to create a comfortable and cool seating cushion. Most commonly used outdoors, patio owners are fond of these. Another variation of open cell foam is dry fast foam. A widely popular product due to it being formulated with antimicrobial agents, along with it being waterproof, this foam is a boat owner’s best friend.
Dryfast foam is made with quality in mind. You’ll be getting a product that’s virtually maintenance free. It is, however, a more expensive foam, but with such an outstanding quality it’s highly recommended for use in areas that receive heavy moisture.
Beware of Imitators
Dry fast foam and marine foam cushions have long been imitated by manufacturers that want the same success that these types of foam have experienced in the last years. Be sure that you confirm that your dry fast foam is authentic and not a knock-off. You can easily determine this by pouring a cup of water on top of the foam and watch it seep through to the other side immediately. If you see it begin to run off the sides, then it’s most likely an imitation.
The Bottom Line
Dry fast foam is a high quality product that is perfect for high-moisture areas. If you’re a boat owner, consider using these foam products as they will give you the least amount of trouble and require little to no maintenance in the end.
