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