Reflex Biocide Foam is a polyurethane foam that is designed for indoor and outdoor use. A common choice among OEM boat builders, Reflex foam is formulated with a biocide, antibacterial agent that prevents the growth of mold and mildew. This foam has a medium firmness and a density of 1.5 lb./cu.ft. This polyurethane foam will absorb water, therefore, when using it for exterior cushions we recommend wrapping it in silk film (plastic) to protect it from moisture. This foam is made in the USA.
Reflex foam is excellent for use as boat seats and outdoor cushions. This foam is recommended for only occasional indoor use. It is not appropriate for applications that receive continuous daily use, like living room sofas, which require a higher density (2+ lb./cu. ft) foam. Additionally, indoor applications do not require the antibacterial agent.
Use an electric kitchen knife to trim the foam if needed. To glue two pieces of foam together, we recommend using 3M Super 77 Spray Adhesive. Foam can be glued on the sides to make larger pieces or layered to make thicker cushions. If layering different stiffness foams, the firmer foam should be on the bottom.
