“The imperative to maximize payloads while improving fuel efficiencies has increased demand for our low-weight, high-strength polyurethane foams,” Lind said. “Similarly, our advanced tooling boards are ideal for short tooling runs and prototype development where metal dies are cost-prohibitive.”
At NSMMS, the company will feature its rigid closed-cell foams for tooling and composite core applications, as well as its flexible and semi-flexible open-cell foams:
LAST-A-FOAM® FR-4700 HT Tooling Board Series – This high-performance tooling board readily handles prepreg composite layup tooling for high-temperature applications up to 400º F. It is an easily machined, affordable choice for prototype machining, vacuum forming, master plugs and molds, and pattern making.
General Plastics’ open-cell flexible and semi-flexible foams are designed for applications where energy absorption, fire retardancy, appearance and versatility are important:
LAST-A-FOAM® EF-4000 and LAST-A-FOAM® TF-5070 semi-flexible products are extremely durable and relatively unharmed by environmental factors. They are formulated to absorb large amounts of impact energy at controlled rates while cushioning payloads from high G-stress levels.
LAST-A-FOAM® WSF-1010 and LAST-A-FOAM® WSF-1121 flexible foam products are flame-retardant, durable, self-skinning foams used extensively in flight decks and cabin applicati
