AC-550H

Product Description

SOLIMIDE® AC-550H 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-550H is formaldehyde free and demonstrates outstanding long term stability under humid conditions and after temperature cycling. Like AC-550 foam, AC-550H foam is denser, which provides for improved thermal properties. Applications for this thermal and acoustic foam insulation include aircraft sidewalls and ECS duct systems, as well as cushioning, thermal protection and vibration damping in space applications. SOLIMIDE® AC-550H foam can be converted into numerous shapes and sizes, and is compatible with many different facings, coatings and adhesives to meet end-use requirements.
