Description: U-1916 is a medium density cellular polyurethane foam. It is a hybrid polymer of both ester and ether urethanes. This open cell foam, and its family, have been specially developed for high resiliency and high rebound. This foam has a very low compression set, is breathable, dimensionally stable, and environmentally friendly. U-1916 has a temperature range of -40° F to +250° F and meets the FMVSS-302 Flammability rating, allowing it to be used in automotive applications.
U-1916’s excellent compression set characteristics and strength allow it to be used in many applications such as automotive, electronic, orthopedic goods, medical and safety equipment. Its low compression set makes it an attractive, economical choice for any application that requires a consistent thickness, such as spacers or fillers.
U-1916 has a compression deflection @ 25% of 5 +/-2 psi, falling into the softer “1” Grade of ASTM-D1056. Other grades can be softer or firmer, depending on application. All cellular urethane products can be supplied with or without adhesive backing in full rolls up to 60" wide, or slit rolls as narrow as ¼". We can also die cut or waterjet cut parts to your exact specifications.
