What is a cold foam mattress?

Cold foam is extremely popular, but what exactly is a cold foam mattress ? The name already suggests it: it is a mattress made of cold foam. This makes the mattress very flexible, moisture-regulating and temperature-regulating. The mattress lasts a long time and is very suitable if you sweat a lot at night.

First let's clear up a misconception: cold foam does not feel cold. The name has to do with the way the foam is made: with a cold mold. The official name is 3D Polyurethane foam and there are two different types. Flexible foam (HR cold foam) and hard foam (PU cold foam).

What are cold foam mattresses and how are they made?

Cold foam mattresses are made from cold foam. This material is made of polyurethane. It was discovered as early as the 1930s that polyurethane can be used to make a very flexible material: cold foam. Cold foam cells have an open structure. As a result, the foam allows air and moisture to pass through as soon as force is exerted on it. The open honeycomb structure makes the mattress very resilient and ensures that it ventilates well and is nice and cool. Cold foam is therefore the most luxurious foam available at the moment. Cold foam is also used as a filler in furniture such as chairs, couches and sofas or for sponges, windshield wipers, bras and even toys.

What do you pay attention to when you buy a cold foam mattress?

Not only the question 'what is a cold foam mattress?' but 'what should you pay attention to if you want to purchase a cold foam mattress' is also important. Because you naturally want to buy a mattress that really suits you. When buying a cold foam mattress, you should pay attention to the density of the foam. A higher density may be more expensive, but it also lasts much longer and provides more resilience. You express this density in HR (high resilience). And the higher the HR value, the more cold foam used per cubic meter and the higher the density. The best mattresses are cold foam mattresses with a HR value of at least 45 and a maximum of 65. The HR value says nothing about the hardness of your mattress. Cold foam mattresses are available in different hardnesses, so there is always a perfect match for you.

Advantages of cold foam

Cold foam mattresses have many advantages. For example, they are less attractive to dust mites, so they are very hygienic. Especially in combination with a washable cover! The mattresses are also odor-free and hypoallergenic, so they cause no or very few allergic reactions. In addition, a cold foam mattress always retains its shape and is above all very resilient. The mattress adapts exactly to your body and feels nice and firm. This way you always get the support you need, without holes forming. A cold foam mattress also absorbs a lot of moisture. Useful if you sweat a lot at night. And the mattress also lasts a very long time. On average, you can enjoy this mattress for at least 12 years. Nice and sustainable!

Disadvantages of cold foam

Cold foam mattresses have a few disadvantages. These are not the cheapest mattresses and they are not suitable for everyone. Do you prefer a soft or very bouncy bed? Then it is better to choose a different type of material, because cold foam is very sturdy. You also always need a protective cover. Due to the open structure of the foam cells, it is important that moisture does not enter the mattress. Another disadvantage can be the weight of a cold foam mattress. Most of them are quite heavy, due to the high density of the foam. This can be difficult if you want to turn a mattress over on your own.
