SOLIMIDE® Foam is a lightweight, open-cell polyimide foam originally designed to improve safety and reduce weight in early spacecraft. It is extremely lightweight, fire resistant, and non-toxic.
Liquid nitrogen is capable of freezing large objects in seconds, making them very brittle and easy to break or shatter.
SOLIMIDE® 60 Second Liquid Nitrogen Test
SOLIMIDE® has excellent performance across temperature extremes
It maintains flexibility and resiliency even at cryogenic temperatures, while competitive material become brittle. Densified SOLIMIDE® 60 Second Liquid Nitrogen Test.
These cryogenic properties make SOLIMIDE® unique as an extremely reliable foam damper, as well as an ideal thermal and acoustic insulator, heat shield, or air blocker in harsh environments.
