680-1468 (BMS 8-283 Type I)

The most common product, 680-1468, is a black, closed-cell, vinyl/nitrile blend foam.  In foam tape form, with adhesive on one side, the product is certified for use per Boeing Material Specification BMS 8-283 Type I, including FAA Vertical Burn test FAR 25.853a. It is available in thicknesses ranging from .0625” to .500”, and roll widths from .375” to 50”.

680-1468 not only meets the challenging flame and smoke rating of the radiant panel test per FAR 25.856a, it also carries a higher UL 94 Flame Rating (UL 94V-0) than most foam products, making it an ideal choice for non-aircraft applications as well.  The foam has very good compression set resistance and temperature rating for a wide variety of applications.

Most commonly available in rolls of tape, Insul-Fab can provide 680-1468 in sheet form, or fabricated parts as well.  We use die cutting and water jet cutting for rapid fabrication of custom shapes.
