AVAILABLE WELDED and NON-WELDED QUALITY PET FOAM
· Great fatigue resistance
· Good chemical resistance
· No toxic or corrosive emissions when burned
NON WELDED Quality: Albeit at lower mechanical properties than welded quality, available as special order for special applications, like x-ray penetrability.

Thermal resistance of NidaFoam
Each NidaFoam board is marked with DOM and
specifications particular to batch.
Scrimming and scoring, including grid pattern for
infusion laminar resin transfer is available with
NidaFoam. Please note the consistency of perforations
and alignment with grid pattern.
Composite wind blade industry is especially suitable
for NidaFoam due to its high process temperature,
excellent fatigue resistance and availability.
NidaFoam sheets can
The white color of the NidaFoam is easy
to recognize and distinguish from other
available foams. The white color transfers
less to the composite part surface, resulting
in less gelcoat usage.
Chemical resistance and corrosive gases:
Good resistance against weak bases, weak acids as well as against most current solvents : alcohol - acetone - perchlorethylene. Limited resistance - check in each case - against strong mineral acids. NidaFoam does not emit any corrosive gases, even when burned, unlike PVC foam. NidaFoam does not emit gases that contain halogen such as hydrochloric acid.
Water and resin absorption:
Excellent closed cell ratio, comparable to PU, SAN and PVC foam.
NidaFoam has been awarded FST M1
spec burn certificate. Other industry
specific certifications are pending and
available upon request. Independent
laboratory structural testing results
available. Check www.nida-core.com
