FP-8000 Energy Absorption Semi-rigid Series

These open-cell polyurethane foams exhibit high hysteresis (approximately 80%) as well as excellent recovery from dynamic impacts. They are available in a density range of 6 to 30 lbs. per cubic foot, and all are flame-resistant. FP-8000 foam is somewhat strain-rate sensitive. Creep under high static stress is not as good as LAST-A-FOAM® TF-5070, TF-6070 or EF-4000 series foams, and this material is not recommended for constant loading. However, the outstanding hysteresis combined with quick recovery make FP-8000 flexible products especially suitable for lateral (nonbearing) shock isolation. 

The FP-8015 (15-pound) density foam has served as the lateral shock-isolation system for the Peacekeeper (MX) Missile. These flame-resistant foams are also used for aircraft interior crash padding. Their low resilience allows the foam to absorb most impact energy, thus minimizing rebound and reducing injuries.

These products are available as sheets, blocks and molded parts.
