#Urethane vs #FoamLatex: which is better to use for #costumes & #cosplays? There are several differences between urethane & foam latex. The three biggest differences are listed below:
- Flexibility. Masks, cowls & torso pieces made from urethane are less flexible than their equivalent foam latex components made from the same molds.
- Fragility. Being a far more flexible product, foam latex is also more fragile than urethane equivalents, meaning that greater care must be used when wearing them and storing them.
- Cost. Foam latex components will very likely cost 3 times more than their urethane equivalents.
Thus, if you’re looking for high flexibility, you’ll want to use foam latex, but it will cost you 3 times more than urethane and require much greater care. If you need something less flexible, such as a Batman cowl Wolverine mask, you’ll likely want one made with urethane.
