Foam is a versatile material that is widely used in various industries, such as furniture and bedding, automotive, and insulation. As consumers become increasingly concerned about the safety and environmental impact of the products they use, it's important to note that foam made in Canada stands out for its high quality, safety, and eco-friendliness. Here are some reasons why foam used in Cushy products are the best:
- Does not contain PBDEs or CFCs
Foam made in Canada is free of PBDEs and CFCs, which are toxic substances that can harm the environment and human health. PBDEs are used as flame retardants in foam products, but they can accumulate in the environment and pose a risk to wildlife and humans. Similarly, CFCs are harmful chemicals that deplete the ozone layer and contribute to climate change. The absence of these substances in Canadian foam products ensures that they are safe for use and do not harm the environment.
- No "off-gassing" produced from blowing agents
Off-gassing is the release of potentially harmful chemicals from foam products into the air. This can cause indoor air pollution and may be harmful to human health. However, foam made in Canada uses blowing agents that do not produce off-gassing. This ensures that the foam products are safe for use and do not pose any health risks to our customers.
- Uses Variable Pressure Foaming (VPF) technology
Foam made in Canada uses Variable Pressure Foaming (VPF) technology to manufacture foam products. VPF technology is a closed-cell, water-blown process that produces a high-quality foam product with superior physical properties. This technology is environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, and ensures that the foam products are of high quality.
- Manufacturing methods exceed Canadian Clean Air Act requirements
Canadian foam manufacturers are required to comply with the Canadian Clean Air Act, which sets limits on air emissions and pollutants. However, the foam used in our products exceeds these requirements by using VPF technology, which produces minimal emissions and pollutants. This ensures that the manufacturing process is eco-friendly and does not harm the environment.
- Higher quality, more consistent product
The manufacturing methods used in Canada, particularly VPF technology, produce a higher quality, more consistent foam product than foam poured by other methods. This ensures that the foam products are of high quality, durable, and long-lasting. Consumers can trust that foam used in Cushy products will meet their expectations in terms of quality and performance.
