Bonded foam can also be called foam of
foam. What this means is that bonded foam is made by crushing many types of foams and
compressing them together with latex which holds the foam together.
Bonded foam mattress
is good for back pain as it is hard and does not let you sink inside the mattress. It
only provides support to your back.

are crushed in the process and is bad for health. GODREJ ® on the other

2. Memory Foam (Visco elastic foam):
Memory foam is a foam that has some
retention capacity and hence it has been called memory foam. Memory
foam is special as
it rises slowly when pressure is released. This will give you the feeling of being
hugged and comfort comes with the package. Some people question, “Are
mattresses better than spring”, but there is no correct answer to that. It depends on
the user. For example, if asked whether football is better or cricket is better, then
there is no definite answer. Of course, I have my own opinion and I feel that memory
foam is better than pocket sprung.
Also pillows made of memory foam are
available in the market which give a very relaxing feeling to the one using the pillow
as the pillow will take the shape of the sleeper’s head, thus relieving them of any
discomfort. Memory foam mattress is good for elderly as it will provide
The property of this foam is unlike any
other and for this property to be showcased
properly, this foam has to stay on the top of the mattress.
3. Polyurethane Foam (PU foam) :
Urethane is an organic compound. When
urethane is repeatedly connected, then it is known as Polyurethane. This is the most
common foam. Depending on the density it can be hard (high density) or
density). Mattresses that are made of PU foam are relatively cheap. The two variants are
also known as HR (High resilience) foam and soft foam. PU foam can be found in car
seats, chair seats, and many other similar places. Even the Sponge used in our kitchens
is PU Foam.
4. Convoluted Foam (egg crate)
The shape of this foam is like an egg
crate. The main purpose for this shape is to give an acupuncture-like
feeling to the
sleeper. This helps to release stress from any part of the body. Such a shape gives this
foam priority and hence it is the top-most layer of the mattress.
But if this foam stays on top of the mattress and even memory foam is on top, then one
would assume that no mattress would have both memory foam as well as convoluted foam.
This assumption is true and consistent with the law of common sense 😁

can increase the
price of your mattress very much.
