Foam sheets are made from viscoelastic foam, which has the property to change its shape when sprayed with a particular liquid. These sheets are used in various industries and in homes as air conditioning systems, mattress covers, pillows, and for various other purposes. The basic purpose of these sheets is to provide insulation to a structure. It prevents the external temperature from entering inside the structure thereby maintaining the temperature at an acceptable level. If the interior temperature of the structure is too low, it will absorb the external temperature and this will, in turn, produce uncomfortable room temperatures. However, if the interior temperature is too high, it will cause the structure to overheat leading to expensive operating costs.
Useful in Various Industries
While designing a home or a commercial building, builders and engineers also need to take into consideration the effects of heat on different parts of the structure. For this, they use various methods to check the performance of foam sheets in different rooms of the building. For example, in the living room, different tests are carried out to check if it provides the required level of insulation or not. In addition to this, in some places, thermal conductivity tests are also carried out to check if foam sheets reduce the heat entering the home.
The best quality foam sheets are quite expensive but they provide excellent service as well. These sheets are available in different sizes and thicknesses and can be used for various purposes. However, the thickness of the foam sheet should be at least one third of the total thickness of the furniture or up to 0.5 mm. This ensures that there is a perfect balance between the durability of the sheets and the comfort levels of the customers.
