Goodfellow recently announced the availability of metal, carbon and ceramic reticulated foams, which are low-density, permeable structures of cells and continuous ligaments that offer important benefits to researchers and design engineers. Thanks in part to the continuous ligaments, reticulated foams have an unusually high surface area-to-volume ratio. Available in aluminum, stainless steel, nickel, vitreous carbon, alumina and silicon carbide, these low-density foams also have a high strength-to-weight ratio and possess the same chemical resistance as the parent material. They can be conductive or insulating, depending on the material chosen.
