AC-530

Product Description

SOLIMIDE® AC-530 polyimide foam is used in aircraft, aerospace and industrial markets as a lightweight, non-wicking, thermal and acoustic foam insulation material where fire resistance, non-toxic properties, and the absence of smoke generation are critical. It is formaldehyde free and demonstrates outstanding long term stability under humid conditions and after temperature cycling. SOLIMIDE® AC-530 insulation is used in a variety of applications, including aircraft fuselage, under floor, ECS ducts and equipment, as well as expansion and contraction joints in cryogenic environments. AC-530 acoustic and thermal foam insulation can be converted into numerous shapes and sizes, and is compatible with many different facings, coatings and adhesives to meet end user requirements.
