Zinc Foam Trims Costs
March 12, 2014
Goodfellow is introducing two variations of its zinc foam. One is 99.99% zinc deposited on a polyurethane foam and the other is ZAMAK 410 Zn /Al4/Cu1/Mg0.04 zinc alloy foam with solid ligaments. Targeting design engineers working in the fields of heat exchangers, catalyst substrates, energy absorbers, filters, and mixers, the foams come in a choice of prices and performance levels to optimize cost savings.
The matrix of cells and ligaments in the foams are repeatable, regular, and uniform throughout the material, yielding a rigid, highly porous and permeable structure with a controlled density of metal per unit volume. Zinc foam is available in a standard pore size of four pores per centimeter (10 PPI), with a bulk density from 0.17g.cm-3 to 0.33g.cm-3. Other porosities and densities may be available upon request.
