Open- and Closed-Cell Foams for Aerospace Manufacturing
As one of the leading foam fabricators in North America, UFP Technologies has access to an array of open-cell and closed-cell foams suitable for a variety of aerospace applications.
Reticulated Polyurethane and Polyurethane Foams
Reticulated polyurethane foam is a versatile material typically used for applications such as:
- Sound absorption
- Fluid management
Polyurethane foams offer excellent cushioning properties for lightweight, delicate objects. We utilize these materials for components that prevent fuel sloshing and gaskets within interiors.
Polyethylene & Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foams
Closed-cell foams are non-abrasive and offer great protection and durability, making these materials suitable for insulation applications. Polyethylene foam is especially useful as it offers a high resistance to moisture and chemicals. These materials provide the peace of mind that your equipment will be protected from drops, shock and vibration while also withstanding the elements.
Cross-linked polyethylene foams offer additional benefits to polyethylene foams as they can protect "Class A" surfaces and are more aesthetically pleasing. UFP Technologies has access to cross-linked polyethylene foams that are impregnated with nitrogen, providing a non-toxic, hypoallergenic, latex-free solution that can come in direct contact with skin. When combined with fabrics, cross-linked polyethylene foams are ideal for our comfort and interior solutions.
