Memory Foam Market Introduction
Memory foam is also referred to as low-resilience or viscoelastic polyurethane foam. Memory foam is majorly composed of polyurethane and other additives that increase the viscosity and density of the final product. Memory foam is characterized by its ability to recover to its initial shape and size after the removal of pressure and hence the nomenclature derived from this property. The property of elasticity of memory foam is a resultant of the open foam bubbles that create an open matrix for the air to move through.
