Metal Foam from RECEMAT

RECEMAT metal foam is an intriguing material with extraordinary properties. The basic material starts simply with an open-cell polyurethane foam which is metalized, normally with nickel for high electrical and heat conductivity. For applications where high strength and rigidity are required, the base material is chromized and heat-treated. The result is a three dimensional, extremely porous structure of unexpected strength and wear resistance.
