Products Foam-Type Gels(NP Gel)

NP GEL is a light and durable silicone foam material. Unlike polyurethane foam, NP GEL has a very low compression set, does not wear out easily, can be used in a wide range of temperatures, and has high long-term reliability.

Characteristics
This is a lightweight and highly durable Alpha GEL foam material.
With a low compression set, performance of NP Gel is maintained even after repeated compression.
Highly flame retardant and operable in the -40°C to 200°C range.
Good for outdoor use because it is highly resistant to weather and ozone.
Application Example
The only 3 mm thick Gel foam sheet effectively absorbs shock, making it possible to decrease the thickness of the helmet. This results in a lighter weight further extending the possibilities of design.
