A contractor applies spray polyurethane foam (SPU) in the crack between cinder blocks in a wall. This foam would have been reviewed with polyurethane foam testing.

Polymer Foam Testing

Polymer foams are versatile, lightweight materials with applications in countless industries due to their unique properties. Verifying quality and reliability through polymer foam testing ensures these materials meet industry standards and safety requirements specific to their intended use.
Polymer Foam Applications
Polymer foams are used in industries ranging from automotive and aerospace to shipping and packaging. In the automotive sector, foams are used for interior components to enhance comfort and safety. In aerospace, lightweight foams contribute to fuel efficiency and overall structural integrity. Shipping and packaging rely on foam-based materials to provide protective cushioning for fragile items during transportation. Polymer-based foam’s range of applications highlights the need for rigorous testing to guarantee the performance and safety of polymer foams in everything from furniture to medical implants.
