Product description

EX-1541 cyanate ester syntactic foam is extremely unique in the industry due to its coupling of extremely low density and good structural properties. The material does not require pressure during cure to achieve it mechanical properties and is easily machined to shape if required. EX-1541 is simply packed or injected into tooling cavities and can also be extruded with the proper tooling.

EX-1541’s inherently low dielectric constant and loss performance makes it ideal for radomes, antennae and radar transparent structures, while its cyanate ester backbone chemistry assures low moisture absorption and low outgassing. These latter two features couples with EX-1541’s low isotropic CTE make it ideal for spacecraft and other dimensionally stable structures and tooling.

EX-1541 can be accurately machined and hand-finished. Sanding and fairing is easily performed on cured EX-1541 and is similar to working with Balsa Wood. Variants from 11-17.5 lb/ft³ (pcf) are available. For densities, higher than 17.5 pcf, refer to TCF4001.
