BETAFOAM AFI

Thermally Expandable Foam for Cavity Sealing and Sound Mitigation

Automotive Sound Mitigation

BETAFOAM AFI™ is an innovative, thermally expandable foam created for use in body-in-white for sound mitigation and to seal vehicle cavities.

The 3-dimensional foam expands by almost 3000 percent, successfully sealing cavities while reducing hard surfaces and absorbing vibration.

The expandable foam is significantly lighter than competitors, offering a 30-40 percent weight reduction.   Our unique patented baffle design allows for superior E-Coat coverage and heat flow during body-in-white.
