Metal foams have a special cellular structure with light weight and excellent mechanical, physical properties. In laboratorial circumstances the production of closed-cell aluminium foams depends on several factors. The Duralcan (F3S.20S) metal matrix composite made by Alcan Company, can be foamed directly from the melt by adding titanium hydride (TiH2). We are investigating the technological solution to create test specimens from closed-cell aluminium foams.
