Suitable for a range of underhood acoustical and thermal insulating applications, The Woodbridge Group developed its flame-retardant polyurethane foam to meet increasingly stringent OEM needs. WhisperTech V0 foams meet UL-94 V0 rated flammability requirements for engine bay applications. According to the company, the new material represents a breakthrough in flammability performance for NVH solutions, offering enhanced sound absorption and transmission-loss properties vs. competing materials, including metals and engineered fibers. In both horizontal and vertical test protocols, WhisperTech UL-94 V0 rated foams self-extinguish once exposed to an open flame. This formulation can also be specifically engineered to meet specifications, which include coloring (including black), heat aging, humidity aging, and no-drip performance. WhisperTech foams can be fabricated in mechanically cut sheets or molded into custom-fit complex geometries to meet exacting levels of acoustical performance.
