What is Memory Foam?


Memory foam material is made from polyurethane and other chemicals to increase thickness and comfort in bedding. Also known as viscoelastic material, this substance quickly molds to a body's shape based on body heat and pressure. It then returns to its original shape once weight is removed from the surface. Memory foam evenly distributes body weight, creating ample support and soft comfort. This material is used on a wide variety of bedding and bedding accessories, including mattresses, mattress toppers and pillows.
