Nida-Core Corp. (Port St. Lucie, Fla.) has introduced both welded and nonwelded NidaFoam PET 100/150 structural foam cores in scored and unscored sheet stock. The thermoformable polyethylene terephthalate foam’s closed cell ratio is reportedly comparable to that of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyurethane (PU) and styrene acrylonitrile (SAN) foams and exhibits high fatigue and chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance, and good burn characteristics, emitting no corrosive gases when exposed to flame. The product also does not emit gases that contain halogens, such as hydrochloric acid.
