Overview of FOAM

  • Foam Magazine is an international photography magazine, published three times a year by Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam.The Foam Talent programme and the annual Talent issue of Foam Magazine are supported by The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation, the VandenEnde Foundation and the Niemeijer Fund.Foam Magazine is sponsored by Igepa Netherlands BV, supplier of excellent paper.
  • FOAM uses the combination of a low resolution (R15) atmosphere model,
    a highly efficient medium-resolution ocean model, and distributed memory
    parallel processing to achieve high throughput on relatively modest numbers
    of processors (16-64).  The quality of the simulated climate compares
    well with higher resolution models.  No flux corrections are used.
  • FOAM should not be seen as a teaching philosophy or strategy, but rather as a globally accessible crowd-sourced educational adjunct providing inline (contextual) and offline (asynchronous) content to augment traditional educational principles.
  • Foam is created when the surface tension of water (attraction of surface molecules toward the center, which gives a drop of water its round shape) is reduced and air is mixed in, causing bubble formulation.
  • Foam panels are glued to the aluminum plate to obtain a resistant composite sandwich locally (in the sheet thickness) and rigid along the length depending on the foam’s thickness.
  • Foam, in physical chemistry, a colloidal system (i.e., a dispersion of particles in a continuous medium) in which the particles are gas bubbles and the medium is a liquid.
  • Foam rubber (also known as cellular, sponge, or expanded rubber) refers to rubber that has been manufactured with a foaming agent to create an air-filled matrix structure.
  • Foam is a problem because it alters the liquid flow and blocks oxygen transfer from air (thereby preventing microbial respiration in aerobic fermentation processes).
  • Foam wouldn’t be possible without Visual Studio Code and GitHub, and relies heavily on our fantastic open source [recommended-extensions] and all their contributors!
  • FOAM is independent of platform or media — it includes blogs, podcasts, tweets, online videos, text documents, photographs, Facebook groups, and a whole lot more.

    However, the benchmark of electrocatalysts can be difficult due to the undetermined surface area, different foam properties, and capillary effect.[33]
    Metal foams are popular support for electrocatalysts due to the high surface area and stable structure.The interconnected pores also benefit the mass transport of reactants and products.


    At lower scale than the bubble is the thickness of the film for metastable foams, which can be considered a network of interconnected films called lamellae.Ideally, the lamellae connect in triads and radiate 120° outward from the connection points, known as Plateau borders.


    A special class of closed-cell foams, known as syntactic foam, contains hollow particles embedded in a matrix material.One particular syntactic foam employs shape memory polymer as its matrix, enabling the foam to take on the characteristics of shape memory resins and composite materials; i.e., it has the ability to be reshaped repeatedly when heated above a certain temperature and cooled.Shape memory foams have many possible applications, such as dynamic structural support, flexible foam core, and expandable foam fill.The advantage of syntactic foams is that they have a very high strength-to-weight ratio, making them ideal materials for many applications, including deep-sea and space applications.The spheres can be made from several materials, including glass, ceramic, and polymers.

    How do I use Foam?

    Foam is a tool that supports creating relationships between thoughts and information to help you think better.

    What is FOAM?

    Slides, links and audio only version available at ‘Why FOAM? Facts, Fallacies and Foibles‘.

    Can I get different colors?

    We have black, black and white, black and red, black and yellow, and black and green foam available for high contrast.If you are interested in another color please let us know.We are currently looking at offering blue foam in the future but do not have a release date at this time.

    What are the dimensions?

    Kaizen Foam Dimensions are 24″x48″ plus/minus 1″.Tolerances are unavoidable in foam products due to shrinkage and compression during storage and shipping.

    Foam in your Stream: Healthy or Harmful?

    In these wet summer months, it is not unusual to notice a thick foam accumulating on the surface of your stream.Although it can look unnatural, even alarming, suds on your stream is not all harmful, depending on the type.

    Do you have MSDS information on Kaizen Foam?

    For MSDS information press here (PDF).

    Is this good for packing to ship heavy items?


    What is the Next Step?

    If you suspect your stream is being seriously affected by a contaminant, such as chemical discharge or a sanitary sewer/septic field failure, do not try to remove the foam yourself.For Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties, contact the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (Southeast Regional Office).

    Who’s best suited to a foam mattress?

    When it comes right down to it, the best mattress for you is the one that feels most comfortable.

    Didn’t you use to have all white?

    Yes.It was discontinued in 2017.

    How do I get the mattress back in the box?

    You don’t.We pick it up fully expanded.If you are not completely satisfied with your sleeping experience within the first 365 nights, we will arrange for a free pickup and removal of your Lull mattress in its expanded form.Lull makes every effort possible to donate returned trial mattresses to charities and organizations in need of beds.

    Which is Which?

    When trying to decide if the foam in your stream is healthy or harmful, look closely! Observe the texture, smell, lifespan, and location.Foam produced from natural causes is identified by its off-white color and its “fishy” or “earthen” odor.Buildups are more prevalent after rainfall, often covering a large expanse of water.Accumulations are usually seen floating downstream or caught on logs after snowmelt or rain carries DOC into the streams.It is usually found in waters with high levels of organic debris, such as sticks, leaves, and tannins.

    Why is Kaizen Foam so expensive to ship?

    The Kaizen Foam sheets are considered an oversized item by UPS and are charged a dimensional shipping rate charge because of how much space they take up for the shipper.To offset this we offer free shipping on orders of $100 or more, or we recommend checking out one of our dealers in your area to get this product for the lowest cost.

    What’s in a Foam?

    Like the soapy suds it’s named after, Foam is mostly air.

    Which Type of Foam is Best?

    There are pros and cons to each type of foam.The ideal type of foam is incredibly individual-specific, and many people will benefit the most from a hybrid mattress that contains two or even all three categories of foam.

    Will spraying the tools with oil to prevent rust hurt the foam at all?

    Other than leaving some oil on the surface of the foam it will not damage the foam at all.It is a closed-cell foam, meaning that liquids will not absorb into it, but rather just stay on the surface.

    History of FOAM

  • In 1937 isocyanate based materials were first used for the formation of foam rubbers, after World War II styrene-butadiene rubber replaced many natural types of foam.
  • In 1969, the U.S.
  • In 2006, the third generation of memory foam was introduced.
  • In 2014, NFPA released its latest edition of NFPA 1851: Selection, Care and Maintenance of Protective Ensembles for Structural Firefighting and Proximity Firefighting.
