polyurethane foam sheet degradation

What are the Causes of Foam Problems

Because water is a blowing agent for polyurethane foam, the substrate material the foam will be sprayed against must also be clean and dry. Foam blown against a damp surface will be “overblown” where it contacts the substrate, and adhere poorly and have a lower density in this layer.【Get Price】

2019 Foam Oxidation Information Sheet[1]

Polyurethane foam will yellow if exposed to UV light. The yellowing is caused by an oxidation reaction in the backbone of the polymer. Since it is the polymer itself which is being oxidized, the yellow color cannot be extracted and the foam will ultimately degrade over time. In simple terms, polyurethane foams are made by reacting a polyol, an.【Get Price】

Thermal degradation of polyurethane foams

THERMAL DEGRADATION OF POLYURETHANE FOAMS 61 the hazard is likely to be reduced even further. Addition of a combustion inhibitor to the polyurethane foam might improve this situation still further, particularly if the starting temperature was somewhat higher.【Get Price】

Assessment of the degradation of polyurethane foams after.

It has been previously reported that the main degradation paths for polyurethane foams are a combination of hydrolysis, thermal oxidation and/or photo-oxidation.【Get Price】

Polyurethanes and Thermal Degradation Guidance

For example, non-flaming thermal degradation in some urethane modified polyisocyanurate foam, those usually used as industrial 2,3insulation, starts above 250ºC (482ºF) . When polyurethanes undergo thermal degradation, some potentially hazardous chemicals may be emitted. This may or may not be seen as smoke. It is important to【Get Price】

Assessment of the degradation of polyurethane foams after.

Polyurethane foams are widely present in museum collections either as part of the artefacts, or as a material for their conservation. Unfortunately many of PU foam artefacts are in poor condition and often exhibit specific conservation issues. Their fast thermal and photochemical degradations have been the aim of previous researches.【Get Price】
