AC-550

Product Description

SOLIMIDE® AC-550 polyimide foam is used in aircraft and aerospace 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. AC-550 is formaldehyde-free and demonstrates outstanding long term stability under humid conditions and after temperature cycling. SOLIMIDE® AC-550 insulation is used in a variety of applications, including aircraft fuselage, under floor, ECS ducts and equipment. The thermal and acoustic foam insulation can be cut into a variety of shapes and sizes, and is compatible with many different facings, coatings and adhesives to meet end user requirements.
