Duocel® Foam

Duocel® foam is an open celled structure made up of interconnected ligaments that form cells with open pores.

Duocel® foam is an open celled structure made up of interconnected ligaments that form cells with open pores. Duocel® can be made from different metals, carbon, and ceramics; each designed to deliver a unique set of chemical and physical properties. The Duocel® foam structure is tailored to offer customized performance for a broad range of applications.
Duocel® foams are highly repeatable and have been proven in a variety of applications over the last 55 years.

Duocel Metal Foam
Metal foam can be made from a variety of metal alloys and is great for applications requiring a high structural integrity. The characteristics of each metal foam can be tailored to deliver custom strength, surface area, flow, and heat transfer properties, making them ideal solutions for energy absorption, multifunctional structures, separators, and heat exchanger applications.

Duocel® metal foams are unique among most metal foams due to their solid ligaments, open cells, and tightly controlled density. The solid ligaments result in a high structural integrity not typical of sintered or hollow ligament foams. The open cell structure allows for fluid flow that can not be done with closed cell foam. Duocel’s tightly controlled density, coupled with its solid ligaments, allows the strength of the structure to customized for a variety of design requirements.

Duocel® metal foam can be made from various alloys including aluminum, copper, steel, Inconel, tin, gold, silver, and many others. The most common type of metal foam is 6000 series aluminum because it offers an ideal mix of strength, ductility, and compatibility with many systems.

Duocel Carbon (RVC) Foam
Carbon foam, also known as Reticulated Vitreous Carbon (RVC), is an almost pure carbon structure offering high surface area and high electrical conductivity.

Carbon is inert, making it compatible with a wide range of chemicals. This combination of properties makes RVC great for electrode applications.

Duocel Ceramic Foam
Ceramic foam offers a rigid, permeable structure that can withstand extremely high temperatures. Duocel® ceramic foam can be made from silicon carbide (SiC), Silicon Nitride (SiN4), Boron Nitride, and many more ceramic materials.

The most common ceramic foam is SiC and used high temperature flow applications.

Duocel® Metal Ceramic Foam – Purpose and Function

Duocel® Metal Ceramic Foam is a multi-functional foam primarily used in aerospace applications for its exceptional insulative, conductive, and mechanical properties. Duocel® foam consists of a complex network of interconnected strands that create open-celled, pore-like spaces. These strands hollow tubes delved from ceramic or metal materials, yet offer superior structural strength, high surface area, and excellent conductivity.

This unique structure makes Duocel® foam the choice for applications requiring lightweight characteristics, good flow control, filtration, energy absorption, and effective heat transfer during outerspace conditions. Its properties also make it suitable for use in energy dampening devices, filters, heat exchangers, and even electromagnetic absorbers.

The versatility of Duocel® foam makes it adaptable to a wide variety of technical requirements, opening up new possibilities in aerospace engineering in Melbourne and across Australia.

Applications of Duocel® Metal Ceramic Foam

Applications of Duocel® foam extend not only in the aerospace industry but also in other sectors due to its multipurpose properties. These applications can be classified into two categories: aerospace applications and industrial applications.

In aerospace, Duocel® foam is used for thermal protection and insulation in spacecraft re-entry vehicles and as a radiator and heat sink in electronic cooling systems. In industrial applications, Duocel® foam is used to manufacture lightweight and durable automobile components, for its heat conductive properties in battery cooling systems, and for its sound absorption characteristics in high-performance silencers.
