Urethane Foam PORON Material

Urethane Foam - PORON® Material

PORON SheetsPORON® is a microcellular urethane foam with extremely low compression set. PORON materials are high density, flexible cellular products and are manufactured by continuously casting and curing mechanically frothed urethane intermediates to the desired thickness. By controlling chemistry and density, the properties of PORON® materials can be widely varied.

Application Highlighted Properties

Poron

  • Excellent compression set resistance which enables durable, long-term performance for gasketing, sealing and cushioning.
  • Low-outgassing and non-fogging, containing no plasticizers or residual chemicals to contaminate the device. The material will not become brittle and crumble and is non-corrosive to metal.
  • Inherently flame retardant without the use of additives. Many of the materials meet flammability requirements of UL HBF and MVSS 302.
  • Engineered urethane formulations offering a wide modulus range -2-90 psi 25% deflection -for more design versatility requirements.
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Easy to fabricate, die-cuts cleanly and works with a broad range of adhesives
  • Broad range of formulas and thicknesses from 0.012" to 0.500" (0.43mm to 12.7mm)

SlimGrip Foam
When space is tight and display performance is critical, PORON® SlimGrip™ foam is an an ideal fit within mobile internet devices. SlimGrip foam is Rogers’ softest material yet. With a starting thickness of 0.5mm and the ability to squeeze into gaps less than 0.05mm, no space will go unfilled. In fact, SlimGrip foam requires one-third the force to achieve 0.05mm thickness compared to competitive materials, all while maintaining excellent rebound properties.
