LO/FR Poron(reg) urethane foams are flame-retardant to UL94 HBF and MVSS 302 and provide low outgassing levels, which enable the foams to achieve the current automotive fogging tests. The raw materials for the LO/FR Poron grades are also compliant with the existing and emerging environmental content requirements and do not require any special notification, labeling, or deviations. LO/FR Poron grades are available in different formulations. Applications in the electronics industry include PCB shock/vibration cushions, LCD gaskets, and ribbon connector pressure pads.
What if algae borne of fertilizer runoff that pollutes rivers and lakes could be harvested and used as biofuel feedstock? What if the leftovers could be recycled into farm soil nutrients, eliminating at least some of the need for artificial fertilizers in the first place? Western Michigan University researchers have a plan.
Manufacturers of plastic parts recognize the potential of conformal cooling to reduce molding cycle times. Problem is, conformal molds require additive manufacturing (AM), and technologies in that space are still evolving. Costs also can be high, and beyond that, many manufacturing organizations lack the knowledge and expertise needed to apply and incorporate additive technologies into their operations.
