Product Information

Blast-Tamer Blast-Tamer
The Blast-Tamerฎ wall system, which incorporates advanced-technology polyurethane foam, is designed to mitigate inadvertent explosion in ordnance storage facilities. It absorbs and disperses blast energy upward, not to adjoining compartments. Approved by the Department of Defense Explosive Safety Board, the system allows the storage of several types of explosives in a single space. It can improve the capacity of an earth-covered magazine by up to 800 percent compared to conventional systems.
LAST-A-FOAMฎ can provide a high-strength, low-weight solution for your manufacturing process. LAST-A-FOAMฎ FR-4300 heat-formable foam is unique flame-retardant structural polyurethane foam.
LAST-A-FOAMฎ can provide a high-strength, low-weight solution for your manufacturing process. It is intended for composite panel cores and other structures where compound-curved surfaces or other details can be made with low-cost heat-forming methods. While it is heat-formable, it retains all the chemical and solvent-resistant properties of polyurethane foams. A closed-cell material, it is easily bonded and will accept a variety of adhesives and coatings.
