Frequently Asked Questions
What is foam metal?
What is foam metal?
Foam metal is porous metal with certain strength and rigidity. This kind of metal features high porosity, low weight, and the pore diameter can reach millimeter level. Normally there are two ways to make foam metal:foaming process and electroplating process.
Foaming process is prepared by adding foaming agent to molten metal.
Electroplating process is copied into foam metal on polyurethane foam skeleton by electrodeposition process.
Why Choose Us?
Beihai Composite Materials Group is the export of metal foam with over 15 years’expensive in manufacturing all kinds of metal foam in different thickness and PPI, includes closed cell aluminum foam, open cell aluminum foam, copper foam, nickel foam, nickel-iran foam.
Our metal foam are widely used in many fields and approved by clients all over the world. besides we also supply samples for lab researching purpose and research project in University.
Honeycomb is totally different from our AFP and it can only be used for heat resistance. But our AFP can not only be used for heat-resistance, but also for sound inslutaion, sounfproof and energy-absorption.
The density of honeycomb aluminum floor is higher than the ultra light porous aluminum foam floor because the aluminum section frame is needed for honeycomb aluminum floor sides but not for the ultra ligh porous aluminum foam sanwich board. It results the costs for the honeycomb aluminum floor is much higher. Furthermore, the ultra light porous aluminum foam sandwich board has much higher performance in mechanism strength, sound-proofing, shock absorption, heat-insulating than honeycomb aluminum.
No.we are not allowed our clients to visit our factory as our products are new patent products.But we will let you see our showroom in Jiujiang.
Generally speaking, small samples are free of charge and we also shall pay the transportation fees at first time, However , if you need big samples,. all the fees shall be borne on you, including sampls fees.
Samples of our products are always available, Just write an email to us for applying, then our sale staff witj get nback to you as soon as possible.
Normally the minimum order request 100m2.
Our panels can be machined as easily as wood, using conventinal techniques like sawing, drilling and etc. It also can be nailed, screwed and bolted joint for ceiling, wall and flooring.
Our aluminum foam panel is mainly used for sound insulation, sound proof, fireproof and waterproof. Besides, it features high stiffness, ultra-light, 100% eco-friendly and recycable which makes our AFP superior to other similar products, such as honey-comb, etc. The above-mentioned advantages enable our AFP to quality for some specific requirements such as railway, engine building industry or some other architectures and designs exteriorly or interiorly.
The above-mentioned features enable AFP(closed- cell) to qualify for specific requirements within automotive,aviation, railway and engine building industry. It is also qualifying for other high potential applications in the field of architecture and design where electromagnetic shielding, structural damping. flame resistance, and a decorative surface structure are required.
The pores inside is sealed and blocked from each other.It features high stiffness, low weight(can float in water), and high energy absorption. Busides, we also can punch holes on the closed-cell AFP.
Open-cell reticulated from is especially useful in heat exchangers/sinks, high quality filters, porous electrodes, baffle structures, fluid flow stabilizers and cores for composite materials.
It features that every pore cell is interconnected inside and it also has good air ventilation while it absorbs sound, It has a wide variety of applications including heat exchangers (pampact electronics cooling, cryogen tanks, and PCM heat exchangers), energy absorption, flow diffusion and ligh weight optics.
Aluminum foam is a new concept metal material which is foamed in sponge shape after melting aluminum foam ingot with various chemical ingredients and which has many pore cell inner structures.
It is a cellular structure consisting of solid aluminum which containers a large volume fraction of gasfilled pores,The pores can be sealed (closed cell foam), or they can form an interconnected network(open cell foam).
