Reticulated foam is a very porous, low density solid foam. 'Reticulated' means like a net. Reticulated foams are extremely open foams i.e. there are few, if any, intact bubbles or cell windows. In contrast, the foam formed by soap bubbles is composed solely of intact (fully enclosed) bubbles.
All the outdoor foam we use is a 1.75-1.85 density. This is one of the important factors of foam performance for comfort, support and durability. It's also a main factor of the cost of the foam. Foam density is not really weight, it's actually a measurement of mass per unit volume for a cubic foot of filling.
All of the filling that we use is 21-29 lb firmness or IFD. The larger the number is, the firmer the foam will feel.

ABOUT OUR OUTDOOR FABRICS
Outdoor fabrics are different from indoor fabrics in the way they are made. They have to be more durable, and they must undergo a special chemical treatment process during manufacturing that makes them mildew and stain resistant. All outdoor fabrics are woven fibers that differ in strength and durability. The main difference between the different types of outdoor fabric really lies in the manufacturing process and the type of fibers that they are made from
BGF Poly-Olefin is a man-made fiber that is usually used with other fibers to create outdoor fabric blends. It is used in outdoor furniture and for other applications, such as house wrap, marine/boat upholstery and coverings even clothing. poly-olefin has a smooth texture and is solution-dyed. It is a durable fabric that dries quickly and resistant to weathering, chemicals, stains and mildew.
Lightweight, lightest fiber, it floats
Abrasion resistant, resilient
Stain-, static-, sunlight-, and odor-resistant
High insulation characteristics
Resists deterioration from chemicals, mildew, perspiration, rot and weather
Color fast, because colors are incorporated during fiber forming stage
Spills can be readily wiped up
Static and pilling can be a problem
Ironing, washing and drying need to be done at low temperature
FYI: Our outdoor fabric matches or even surpasses "Sunbrella" fabric on all benchmarks (see our data sheet below) and at a fraction of the cost. Sunbrella brand outdoor fabric is solution dyed acrylic. Solution dyed basically means that the fibers that the fabric is made of are dyed in a color solution before they are woven
