Medium Density Polyurethane Antimicrobial Foam, formerly known as Reflex Biocide Foam, is the standard foam choice for the marine industry. Sailrite is proud to offer this popular foam with antimicrobial properties to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. This foam has a medium stiffness, a density of 1.8 pounds per cubic foot and a foam IFD (Indentation Force Deflection) of 45 pounds.
Medium Density Polyurethane Antimicrobial Foam is an excellent choice for marine upholstery and partially protected outdoor cushions as its antimicrobial properties mean it can stand up to moisture and remain mold and mildew free. It is recommended for occasional indoor use and is not appropriate for frequent, everyday use and high-traffic environments. For a heavy-use foam, consider High Density Polyurethane Foam from Sailrite. Medium Density foam can be wrapped in silk film to help keep moisture out, which is especially important when used in wet environments.
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 can 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.

Got the 4 inch foam from you guys and made 2 boat cushions I use for the bunk. Made so they can be lifted individually to access the storage underneath. Used sunbrella as a cover and they even have zippers on the backs. thanks
Using for boat seats works as imagined.
It was what I expected
Arrived quickly, high quality foam, at a very reasonable price compared to what was available locally.
