High Density Polyurethane Antimicrobial Foam is the best choice when you need a high-quality, long-lasting and dependable foam ideal for heavy-use applications. Its density means it will provide excellent support while still delivering on comfort, making it ideal for high-traffic seating cushions (such as couches and sofas), benches, cabin seating and sleeping berths and certain outdoor cushions. Its antimicrobial properties help prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
For outdoor use, Antimicrobial High Density foam can be used, and silk film should be wrapped around the foam to help keep moisture out. Also use an upholstery fabric that has high water resistance or can be treated with a waterproofing solution.
High Density Polyurethane Antimicrobial Foam will typically last up to 12 years. It has a firm stiffness, a density of 2.8 pounds per cubic foot and a foam IFD (Indentation Force Deflection) of 60 pounds.
The Sailrite® Blade Foam Saw expertly cuts through a full range of foam types. A standard electric kitchen knife can also be used, though the results won’t look as professional. To glue two pieces of foam together, Sailrite recommends using spray adhesive. Foam can also be glued on the sides to make a wider piece or layered to make thicker cushions. If layering foams with different stiffness levels, the firmer foam should be the bottom layer.
Please Note: Sheet size may vary up to 2 inches in length and 1 inch in width.
Important: 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.

Cutting Foam With an Electric Kitchen Knife
This video shows you how to use a standard electric kitchen knife to trim your foam to size, including some tricks to achieving a sharp cut line and using weights to keep the foam in place while cutting.
Excellent material, looks and feels great, easy to work with-- I used a really sharp conventional chef's knife. With a little patience, gave nice clean cuts, took a bit of time, but less time than it would have taken to go to Goodwill and buy an electric knife I'd never use for anything else. But pay close attention to the note in the description "Please Note: Sheet size can vary up to 2 inches in length and 1 inch in width." My piece came in about 1/2" narrow in width, and 1" short in length compared to nominal dimensions. (I did leave it sit unrolled for a while before I measured it, so I don't think the issue was that it was still expanding from shipping.) No matter for me, it simply left me with a little less scrap left over to throw away after I cut what I needed, but if you're needs are really close to the nominal dimensions, watch out or perhaps check with Sailrite to see if they can promise the nominal dimensions

I used this to reupholster my dining room chairs. Easy to cut, and very comfortable.
Seems fine so far. Not quite as firm as I'd hoped but I think it will last. Using it for cushions on my dining room chairs.
