Abstract
IMI-TECH CORPORATION PROPOSES TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF MEETING THE NAVY'S NEED FOR A POURED-IN-PLACE, LIGHTWEIGHT FLOTATION FOAM THAT WILL NOT SUSTAIN COMBUSTION, DOES NOT RELEASE HAZARDOUS AMOUNTS OF TOXIC GASES WHEN EXPOSED TO FLAMES, AND HAS LOW WATER ABSORPTION. THE TECHNOLOGY TO MEET THIS REQUIREMENT, WITHOUT THE USE OF TOXIC GAS-PRODUCING FLAME RETARDANTS, EXISTS AT IMI-TECH TODAY. THIS PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY IS A BLEND OF POLYURETHANE AND POLYIMIDE CHEMISTRYWHICH RESULTS IN A NONBURNING POUR-IN-PLACE CLOSED CELL FOAM AT A DENSITY OF 3 POUNDS PER CUBIC FOOT. AS THE NAVY DESIRES A FOAM WITH A DENSITY OF 1 POUND PER CUBIC FOOT, THE EFFORT OUTLINED IN THIS PROPOSAL IS DIRECTED AT REDUCING THE DENSITY OF IMI-TECH'S UNIQUE HYBRID POLYURETHANE/POLYIMIDE FOAM TO MEET THIS GOAL.
