What exactly is memory foam made from?

The three main ingredients in all our foam products are Polyol, TDI (Toluene Diisocyanate) and water.

When these three compounds are mixed together the result is like baking a cake, whereby a liquid mix transforms and expands into a solid foam material. The process is called polymerization.

Other chemicals are added in small amounts to create different densities, hardness and foam properties.

All chemicals are checked regularly to ensure that they comply with Australian Health Standards and the EPA. All our foams are treated with either Ultra-Fresh® or Health Guard® (anti-bacterial treatment) for a healthier home environment and manufactured in Australia without ozone-depleting CFCs.
