Abstract
THE SCOPE OF THIS PROGRAM WILL BE TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING FOR TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES A LIGHTWEIGHT, FIRE-RESISTANT, LOW SMOKE GENERATING SEATING FOAM THROUGH THE USE OF POLYIMIDE FOAM CHEMISTRY. IMI-TECH CORPORATION MANUFACTURES A LIGHTWEIGHT, FIRE-RESISTANT, LOW SMOKE GENERATING THERMAL/ACOUSTICAL FOAM INSULATION MATERIAL WHICH SHOWS GREAT POTENTIAL FOR MODIFICATION TO A SEAT CUSHION MATERIAL. EFFORTS WILL FOCUS ON MODIFICATIONS TO IMI-TECH'S EXISTING PROPRIETARY POLYIMIDE RESIN TO OBTAIN A POLYIMIDE BASED SEAT CUSHION MATERIAL THAT OFFERS A REASONABLE LIFE CYCLE COST. THE MATERIAL IDENTIFIED BY THIS PROGRAM WILL GREATLY INCREASE THE FIRE SAFETY OF ALL TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES, DUE TO THE INHERENT HIGH TEMPERATURE STABILITY OF POLYIMIDE MATERIALS.
