Generally, the sponge density for sofa cushions is about 35, and there are soft, hard, super soft and other specifications. Do mattresses are generally about 22. The so-called high-density sponge is commonly used by salespeople when introducing upholstered furniture. According to the standard, a density ≥ 45 is high-density foam, medium density foam is < 45, and low-density foam is < 18.
