ASTM D3574 & Other Polyurethane Foam Tests
Polyurethane foam has an extraordinary number of uses worldwide, from use in domestic furniture to lining inside the metal and plastic walls of most refrigerators and freezers.
Polyurethane is also combustible, emits toxins during decomposition, and will thermally degrade when overheated. Because it is a compound that can be leveraged for so many different uses, material testing and validation is essential for getting your foam product to market.
In light of this demand, DDL is proud to announce it has recently expanded its material testing services to offer a full range on polyurethane foam testing.
DDL’s packaging and materials testing engineers draw on laboratory best practice techniques and their extensive background of material standards when testing your polyurethane foam project. Information provided by DDL materials testing engineers will ensure your polyurethane foam is safe and durable enough for your specific application.
Shown below are a few of the standards that employ polyurethane foam testing:
- ASTM D3574 - Flexible Cellular Materials – Slab, Bonded, and Molded Urethane Foams
- ASTM D3576 - Cell Size of Rigid Cellular Plastics
