Technical Foam Services Develop New Fire-Retardant Reticulated Polyether Foams

Northamptonshire, United Kingdom (14th September, 2011) – Technical Foam Services, a leading independent engineering-based manufacturer and foam producer, introduce a new line of fire-retardant reticulated polyether foams.

For many years, Technical Foam Services Ltd have been widely recognised as the UK’s leading supplier of reticulated foams, which are used as filter media within high performance sports cars, buses and trains. Traditionally the core materials are reticulated polyether foams, as these show better resistance to oils and water than reticulated polyester foams.

However, until recently, reticulated polyether foams have not been available in a fire-retardant version, but due to a recent development within the development department at Technical Foam Services, they are now able to offer such a range. The physical characteristics of the FR polyether filter foam remain the same as the non-FR, so this option is hugely attractive to their automotive customers. The reticulated FR polyether foam meets the globally recognised standard of FMVSS302.

Duncan Geddes, Joint Managing Director of Technical Foam Services, commented: “This is a great step forward for our customers of reticulated foam, and by being the only European foam company who can offer fire retardant reticulated polyether foam; we have once again shown our ability to lead our market sector. We welcome any new enquiries from current users of reticulated foam. Samples are immediately available for a wide range of porosities.”
