AbstractIn this Phase I effort, Touchtone Research Laberatory will manufacture, test and demonstrate seveal unique attributes of a coal-based carbon foam for use as a fireblock material in laminated composite structures. The carbon foam has several unique attributes, including: hihg thermal insulation properties; high resistance to burning; high compressive strength; it is highly tailorable; easy to machine and it can be laminated and impregnated with other materials. The material is easily made from an inexpensive readily-available precursor--coal. It's manufacture is readily scalable. And its manufacturing process can be varied to produce highly tailorable material of various densities.
