Industrial equipment and machinery require durable materials that are built to last. Rogers Corporation has provided the solution with PORON® foam. This polyurethane material is rugged and endures years (even decades) of use without degrading or falling apart. Here’s a quick look at PORON foam and why it’s your best choice for industrial purposes.
Purposes for PORON Foam
PORON foam is outstanding for a variety of applications, some of which include:
- Vibration, Sound, and Impact management and absorption
These capacities make PORON foam a great option for components in automobiles, aerospace equipment, industrial machinery, computers, electrical enclosures, and many more uses.
Why PORON Foam Could Be a Good Fit for You
- Flexible materials are valuable when they can revert to their original state after withstanding pressure. This is called compression set resistance and PORON foam is incredible in this category.
- If your equipment or machinery needs to resist chemicals and other liquids, PORON foam is the answer due to its low outgassing status.
- You want your flexible materials to be easy to work with. PORON foam can be effortlessly cut and manufactured and plays nicely with adhesives and other materials.
