Phenolic insulation is becoming a popular solution to these problems. Phenolic materials consist of solids mixed with phenolic resin and a surface acting agent. The resulting reaction produces a network of bubbles, which is then cured into a foam.

Phenolic insulation for use in chilled water applications is produced in large buns. Ice-templated (IT) cellulose microfibril porous foams with unique layer structure and controllable channels were successfully fabricated via unidirectional freezing methods.

In the present work we prepared and characterized several polyurethane (PU) composite foams by combining variable concentrations of nanoclay (montmorillonite, MMT) with metal wires or low cost cellulosic-based reinforcements, with the objective of developing multi-scalar rigid foams for structural applications.

The addition of MMT promoted foaming and the formation of finer and more. Polymer nanocomposite foams have received considerable attention because of their potential use in advanced applications such as bone scaffolds, food packaging, and transportation materials due to their low density and enhanced mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties compared to traditional polymer foams.
