- Inherently fire resistant, SOLIMIDE foams emit virtually no smoke or incapacitating toxic by products when exposed to open flame.
LIGHT WEIGHT - SOLIMIDE polyimide foams are extremely lightweight. This translates into fuel savings and extra payload capacity.
WIDE TEMPERATURE OPERATING RANGE - SOLIMIDE polyimide foams remain functional when exposed to extremes of cold and heat that would degrade competitive polymer foams. The foams maintain their flexibility even at cryogenic temperatures.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY - This non-fibrous insulation requires no special handling.
ACOUSTICAL / THERMAL PERFORMANCE - SOLIMIDE polyimide foams offer excellent acoustic absorption and good thermal insulating properties.
PRODUCTIVITY - SOLIMIDE - foam products are more cost effective to handle and install than fibrous insulation. They are light, easy to cut and fit, and readily adapt to fabrication with other materials.
DURABLE - SOLIMIDE - foams show significantly greater resistance to damage than traditional insulating products. They maintain their integrity after long-term usage in a vibrating environment and when exposed to extremes of cold and heat that would degrade other products. Polyimide foams also have a high degree of chemical stability and are resistant to hydrocarbons, alcohols and non-concentrated acids.
