FST/OSU Aerospace Foam


LAST-A-FOAM® FR-3800 FST

This halogen-free polyurethane-based foam core material complies with fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) requirements, and Ohio State University (OSU) 65/65 heat release standards for aerospace applications. It is also compliant with the European Union’s REACH regulation. Used in conjunction with other materials, FR-3800 FST foam core helps improve aesthetics and reduces costs while meeting fire safety requirements. It is available in a wide range of densities (3 – 40 pcf), and sheet thickness of up to 28 inches. Custom sizes and thickness are also available. This series is an excellent core material alternative to thermoplastics and honeycomb for core and structural FST applications.
