While I know the leaves are turning and falling to the ground, but as a designer we are always looking ahead to the next season. That is why I got excited when I saw the new upholstery produt for out door furniture – Instant Dry. (Wish I had a picture as the lacey network of is so pretty I could even see it back lit for a piece of art!) Ok, but back to it’s real purpose… Read on for information from the manufacturer
Making cushions for outdoor or marine use has had its drawbacks. Tradition foam cushioning absorbs water much like a sponge and takes forever to dry. Until now quick drying foam cushioning has been expensive. Instant Dry Cushioning solves all those problems.
Instant Dry Cushioning is perfect for any outdoor or marine application. Instant Dry’s unique lace design allows water to flow right through it. The High Density Polyethylene fibre will not absorb moisture and air circulates freely throughout the cushioning speeding the drying process. In most cases the cushioning material will dry before the fabric covering it.
Instant Dry can be wrapped with polyester batting to give extra thickness and a high loft soft feel to the cushion without affecting the drying time. Polyester batting like our F 6405 or F 6406 will not absorb moisture and like Instant Dry, water flows through it.
Instant Dry does not support growth of moulds or mildew. Instant Dry cuts easily using the a foam cutter or with any sharp knife and can be stacked to get thicker cushions. We recommend using S 8504 Latex adhesive around the edges to glue sheets together. Latex adhesive is not effected by moisture and by using it just around the edges it will not affect the flow or water or air though the cushion.
Instant dry cushioning is guaranteed for 5 years against loss of shape in residential use.
