SKU# IV1-012-25
automotive airplane marine railway

Armacell's Ensolite IV1 and IV3 elastomeric closed cell foams are designed for use in Aerospace, Automotive, and Marine applications. These foams have excellent resistance to oil, fuel, and water, and can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications. This foam is notable for its use as carpet padding, cushioning for seat components, or in headliners and sidewalls. It can also be used for gasketing or sealing applications.

Sold in 25-ft rolls. Rolls may have a skin layer on one side. ±1/16" tolerance on all thicknesses. 

Note: Includes FAA burn certificate for 25.853(a), except for 1/8" IV1 foam. 1/8" IV1 foam does not pass FAR 25.853(a) vertical burn test when tested alone, but does pass when sandwiched between acceptable materials, such as in armrests, carpet padding, wall padding, etc.
