Foams

Team Wendy manufactures an array of open-cell polyurethane foams designed specifically for impact mitigation and energy absorption. Custom formulated by Team Wendy engineers, each material can be developed in a wide range of stiffness and with varying viscoelastic material properties. Below is a sampling of three of our families of foam: Zorbium®, ZFR™ (Zorbium® Fire Retardant Foam), and 142D. Choose from what you see here, or let us build the perfect solution for your application.
