I am looking to cover a small memory foam shape with dual flex spandex and would like to know if there is a better way to go about sourcing a material with the memory foam characteristics covered with a protective layer that allows a users finger to slide easily over the surface. I am currently trying to glue the fabric over the surface but upon doing so there are seams that make the prototype unsightly. There have to be other solutions out there. I would be open to hear options.
What about neoprene? Already has a pretty good hand feel without needing an extra layer of fabric over top.
Unfortunately Neoprene will not work for this particular application. Neoprene is a closed cell foam where as memory foam is an open cell allowing it to expand or contract depending upon pressure and temperature. The two applications that might be similar are bras and shoe inserts. Would love to hear more thoughts on the subject.
An embroidery type frame to hold the spandex even in tension, then spray both parts with a spray glue like Super 77, wait and stick together.
