Polyurethane foam has an extraordinary number of uses worldwide, from use in domestic furniture to lining inside the metal and plastic walls of most refrigerators and freezers.
Polyurethane is also combustible, emits toxins during decomposition, and will thermally degrade when overheated. Because it is a compound that can be leveraged for so many different uses, material testing and validation is essential for getting your foam product to market.
In light of this demand, our team is proud to announce it has recently expanded its material testing capabilities to offer a full range of services for testing polyurethane foam.
Our packaging and materials testing engineers draw on laboratory best practice techniques and their extensive background of material standards when testing your polyurethane foam project. Information provided by our materials testing engineers will ensure your polyurethane foam is safe and durable enough for your specific application.
Below are a few of the standards that employ polyurethane foam testing:
- ASTM D3574 – Flexible Cellular Materials – Slab, Bonded, and Molded Urethane Foams
- ASTM D3576 – Cell Size of Rigid Cellular Plastics
