SKU# DAX25-050-7236
automotive airplane marine railway

DAX Fire Hardened Transportation Foam is is a highly flame resistant polyurethane foam for transportation applications. It meets all flammability requirements for the Aerospace and Automotive industries. DAX is one of the few foams on the market capable of passing the stringent FAR 25.853(c) oil burn for seat cushion (fireblock) test on its own, without the use of a fire blocking layer.

Density (pcf) Firmness (ILD)
DAX 25 2.6 20-26
DAX 45 2.6 40-48
DAX 55 3.2 50-60
DAX 90 5.0 80-100
