What is duck padding?
BEST ANSWER: Deck padding is used for upholstery around foam to help soften the seating area.
Can this be uesd to make new car seats?
BEST ANSWER: I use this padding to reupholster dining room chair seats. It gives extra softeness between the foam and the fabric and evens out any lumps that the foam has created. Not sure what type of car seat you are making...
Would this work to make a doll size mattress?
BEST ANSWER: Yes it would work for a doll size mattress!
Is this quick dry to prevent mold for outdoor cushions?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be used for outdoor cushions.
Could someone pls tell me if this padding would be appropriate to insert into patio furniture cushions that have lost their fullness?? i.e., have become compressed. I priced replacing the cushions themselves and couldn't believe the cost. Thx in advance for any thoughts
does the Dacron Deck padding come completely squashed ? I've read reviews where it is so flat it does not recover
BEST ANSWER: It’s 100% densified bonded Dacron for ease of working with upholstered items. It is compressed to 1/4” or 1/2” thick to prevent lumps & wrinkles like a poly fill. It is designed to be dense, compressed & flat to avoid shifting. It should not be pulled apart. Additionally, you do not want the the poly fibers working their way through your say cotton upholstery fabric over time, do you? The bottom has a bonded coating that keeps it intact when pulling & stapling. I hope this answers your question.
What is the width of Dacron padding?
BEST ANSWER: It is 27 inches wide,
Do you have a fabric with a ‘rubberized’ backing - waterproof, to make a tablecloth that will protect the wood from heat and liquids? I have such a piece that I leave on my table all the time and cover with a cloth suitable to the occasion when I have a dinner party. This cloth I made from a length of upholstery fabric has a velvety side for the top and a black ‘rubberized side for the table. I would like to replace it.
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend getting either flannel backed vinyl or oilcloth. Both are going to be great options for making table cloths.
What is the best thickness of Dacron to put over your synthetic cotton when upholstering a dining room chair?
BEST ANSWER: I used the 1/2” Dacron over 1” foam and it worked great.
Do you have 1 “?
BEST ANSWER: No, we just carry the 1/2" and 1/4". This is the thickness after compression, so it will look thicker when it isn't compressed.
Would this help a saggy 2 cushion couch ?
BEST ANSWER: It would help somewhat. Another option is Dacron wrap, which has more loft.
Could it be used for making cat beds with a fleece cover?
I need help with my futon?
BEST ANSWER: We'd suggest 2" Mattress foam or a memory foam topper if you're looking to make it more comfortable.
In the uk this seems to be sold on weight ie 2oz 4oz etc.. can you please tell me which one I need. Thanks ?
Cuts with scissors works great
I am refinishing chairs from the 1930s and the original deck padding- hemp I think- was a wreck. This is a great modern replacement.

Looks great...haven't used yet
I would love to review this product, but the fabric I ordered with the Upholstery Deck Padding hasn't been received yet even though they were both ordered on the same day. Still waiting...will review if the fabric ever comes.
