Fabric Backed 1/4" Sew Foam is a thin sheet of high-quality, polyurethane foam that is perfect for upholstery applications. This foam, often called polyurethane foam with fabric backing, scrim foam or sew foam, features a spun-bonded polyester backing. 1/4" Sew Foam is ideal for sewing quilted bags and purses as the foam is thin enough to be flexible and easily shaped.
The backing holds stitches so you can sew through the foam to create pleats or channeling in motorcycle, pontoon and powerboat seats, golf cart backrests and coaming pads. It is not a substitute for actual cushion foam; instead, it is a way to pad and soften hard edges and also to add texture to seating by creating sewn quilted patterns in the covering fabric. This backing also holds adhesives well, making the foam easy to glue in place. Fabric Backed 1/4" Sew Foam can also be used in headliner applications (Note: DO NOT use Foam Lock Spray Adhesive for headliner applications.) Simply glue the spun-bonded side of the foam to the hull, and then glue Nauga Soft or another vinyl to the foam side using an adhesive. If attaching a translucent/light colored material over this sew foam check to ensure the color does not show through.
Note 1: This item may consist of two pieces. Color of foam may vary.
Note 2: Items are compressed for shipping, we recommend unrolling as soon as possible. Compressed foam takes up to a week to regain its original size and shape. Allow foam to fully decompress before cutting or using in a project.
