ILD stands for Indentation Load Deflection. In simple terms it is a measurement of how hard or soft a foam is. In more accurate terms it’s the number of pounds of pressure required to indent 4″ of foam by 25% using a 50 square inch indentation.
Cut to Size Foam Guidelines-
1. All foam types and specs are categorized with a four digit number-
-1st two numbers are the Density of the foam-The higher the density or weight the higher the longevity and quality (Ex 1.2#, 1.8#, 2.2#, 2.8#).
-2nd two numbers are the ILD or IFD, this gives the foam its firmness, the higher the # the firmer the foam.
