Foam for nuclear materials transportation
Product Announcement from General Plastics Manufacturing Co.
LAST-A-FOAM® FR-3700 foams are high-performance materials intended primarily for applications in nuclear materials and extremely hazardous waste transportation. When used as an impact-and-fire insulation liner in transport containers, FR-3700 can be engineered to provide the ultimate in protection for hazardous cargo, outperforming wood and other polymeric materials. The FR-3700 formulation is specially designed to allow predictable impact-absorption performance under dynamic loading, while also providing an intumescent char layer that insulates and protects hazardous materials, even when exposed to pool-fire conditions.
