Sawbones Cellular Rigid Polyurethane Foam 20 pcf Density
Categories: Other Engineering Material; Composite Core Material; Polymer; Thermoset; Polyurethane, TS; Thermoset Polyurethane Foam, Unreinforced

Material Notes: Cellular Rigid Polyurethane Foam

Primary Use
Cellular rigid polyurethane foam is primarily used as an alternative test medium for human cancellous bone. Its outward appearance matches cancellous bone more closely than solid rigid polyurethane foam products, however they provide a somewhat less consistent and uniform test bed.

The appearance of cellular rigid polyurethane foam resembles that of cadaveric cancellous bone, however, the cell structure is 95% closed as compared to the open cell structure of cancellous bone. Foam is available in a range of sizes and densities, from 0.12 to 0.32 grams per cubic centimeter (7.5 to 20 pounds per cubic foot) and cell sizes ranging from 0.5 to 1.0 mm.

Information provided by Sawbones.

Available Properties
  • Density
  • Compressive Yield Strength
  • Compressive Modulus
