Water absorption rate
Minimum quantity of water absorbed per standard ‘brick’ piece measuring 23cm x 11cm x 8cm is at least 1.90kg. Maximum quantity is in excess of 2.00kg.
Normal density of foam is about 1.60lb/ft3 or 25.6kg/m3.
Water penetration rate
Water penetration rate per brick when fully saturated is within 30-60 seconds. It is fast absorbing, yet it retains water well with no drippings after +/- 10 seconds in normal conditions.
Foam carrying capacity
The exceptionally high water absorption capacity coupled with with homogeneous structure of fine cellular formation allows you to insert flowers from angles without affecting the carrying capacity of the foam or the access of the flowers to water.
Reusable and non-fragmented
Reusable and non-fragmented when pierced from all angles with excellent grip around the flower stems.
Economical for all occasions
Easy to work with, saves time and is thus economical for all occasions – big and small.
Correct Saturation Method
Let the brick float freely on the water surface by itself until it is completely submerged. Do not try to force the brick to absorb water. Submerging the brick by hand will not deliver the best results and will cause dry spots within the foam.
Proper soaking means longer lasting blooms for your flowers.
