Carbon by Design has developed several captured foam technologies for our customers. This process is especially useful in lightweight structures with core materials ranging from 1.3 lb/cu. ft to 10lb/cu. ft densities. The trapped foam is used as a consolidation mechanism during the cure cycle and to prevent oil canning after the cure of structures with laminate thicknesses a thin as .008 in. In some applications where weight is the primary concern the foam can be removed with a chemical milling process after the cure cycle is completed. Depending on the application foam selections include polystyrene, rohachell, and EPP foams.
