Use Lux Foam for Firmer Sofa Cushions

When you need a foam replacement for your sofa, make sure you purchase the right type of foam for your personal needs and preferences. The most popular types of foam may be High-Density or Poly foam, but not everyone prefers a cushion with medium firmness. While those who suffer from back pain may want the softest type of foam cushion, there are also people who feel most comfortable using the firmest cushions.

At first glance, the concept of firmness may seem similar to density, but they are not the same thing. Firmness is usually defined as the amount of pressure it takes to compress foam, while density is the mass of foam per unit of volume. Even soft foams can have a high density based on how they are manufactured. So if you’re looking for a cushion that is harder rather than softer, density won’t play much of a factor.

Instead, look at a foam’s ILD to determine its firmness. The most consistently firm type of foam is Lux Foam. Lux Foam has a 50 lb. ILD and comes in regular and high-density variants. If you need a cushion that feels firm and lasts long, high-quality Lux Foam can provide exactly what you need.
