If you intend to use ZIPCushions for outdoor purposes, investing in the fast-dry foam will see your setting last looking great for longer.

FAST DRY FOAM

Fast dry foam has been specifically designed for outdoor use in residential applications and marine environments. Unlike conventional foam, fast-dry foam drains quickly allowing the cushions to dry fast even after being saturated while protecting them against mold growth.

Another advantage of using fast dry foam cushions is that they can remain considerably cleaner than conventional foam cushions.

Dirt, dust, and irritants can get trapped in the structure of traditional foam which is almost impossible to get out.

When dirt is noticeable on quick dry cushions, it can be easily cleaned with a light hose down.

The cushions can then be placed in a well-ventilated area to dry out.

Fast dry foam is a highly resilient and durable material and is recommended if you want to leave your ZIPCushions outside exposed to the elements all year round. In the event your cushions are exposed to the wet, it is advised you tip them on their side and all the water to run directly out of the cushions.

HIGH-DENSITY FOAM

High-density foam is a very firm foam that generally makes up the bottom layer of popular memory foam mattresses. Other types of mattresses such as innerspring or hybrid may also use high-density foam to support the spring systems.

High-density foams generally are not used to create the entire mattress because they are just too firm. So, generally, they are used as a foundation for the bed or to provide edge support.

High-density foam is made of a blend of polyurethane and tends to off-gas. If you are susceptible to lung issues, please do additional research on the quality of foams before purchasing.

Pros: High-density foam is used in many mattresses to provide foundation and shape.

FIBER FILLING

Cushions filled solely with fiber offer one of the most comfortable customized cushions you can get, it gives  a  feeling of ease, which can feel amazing after a busy day of work, school, or running errands. fiber filled backs and scatter cushions work in a different way to foam and fiber combinations, they hug your figure for a cozy sit you won’t want to leave.

What makes fiber fillings so cozy?

ZIPCushions fiber-filled cushions, take hollow-fill polyester fibers and blow them into the customized cushions or customized pillows. Using the blown technique allows air pockets to form between the fibers, giving the back cushion a plump and inviting appearance. As you lean back on your ZIPCushions, the fibers are compacted together and the air in between the fibers is pushed out of the back cushion, making it mould to your shape as you sit back and relax.
