Title: New Flexible FR Polyurethane Foams for Energy Absorption Applications
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX12CG27P
Award Amount: $124,490.00
 

Abstract:

Development of new polyurethane (PU) insulation foams through a non-toxic environmentally friendly composite approach. Target FR foams will exhibit high heat flow resistance as well as lower density than conventional PU. Foams involve synergism between novel phosphonate FRs and smoke suppression agents coupled with use of aerogel. Preliminary data show peak heat release rates reduced by 50% versus PU, smoke equal to PU and ignition times delayed from 25 to 143 seconds.
