Please provide a brief description of the Innovation

Pinoalyuminiyu basic properties are: high efficiency energy absorption or vibration and light weight products with a sufficiently high strength and low thermal conductivity.
The essence of the work is to develop a process of manufacture of porous aluminum parts, including the optimization of the technological process of foaming aluminum and selection of the optimum chemical composition of the alloy for foaming

Description of the problem

Foamed aluminum occurs with the participation of calcium carbonate - the cheap stuff. Foaming process itself takes place in two stages - a foaming in hot form. This allows for more even distribution of pore volume parts. Also optimization of the chemical composition of the aluminum alloy is greatly improves the uniformity of the pore space.

Stage of Development

Prototype with favorable lab results
