IFDIndention Force Deflection, is a measurement of foam firmness and is independent of foam
density. IFD is measured by indenting (compressing) a foam sample to 25% of its original
height. The amount of force in lbs. required is its IFD measurement. The more force required,
the firmer the foam. IFDs usually range from 10 IFD (super soft) to 100 IFD (very firm).
Phthalate-freeEnviroSafe products do not contain phthalates – chemical plasticizers that are often used to soften plastics. Phthalates are not environmentally friendly.
