What is density in foam?

Density is the primary means of measuring the quality of foam. Density is measured in cubic metres (m³) so foam with a density of 60kg will weigh 60kg if you have one cubic metre of it. A higher density mattress (eg. 75kg) has more foam fitted into each cubic metre so it weighs more (75kg per cubic metre).
