the standard product 

The “IG” in ROHACELL® IG stands for “industrial grade.” It’s the standard product in our range of rigid foams and is suitable for a wide variety of applications.

It’s the structural foam of choice for automotive, watercraft and other industrial applications. In the medical technology market, ROHACELL® IG is a common core material for x-ray and CT table tops. 

There’s also one foam grade that comes with a finer cell structure. Because of the smaller size of its cells, ROHACELL® IG-F takes up less resin at the surface, where the cells have been cut open. At any rate, all of the foam’s mechanical and thermal properties remain unchanged.

ROHACELL® IG and ROHACELL® IG-F are particularly suitable for prepreg processing, but can also be used in, for example, resin infusion and RTM processes up to temperatures of 130°C and pressures of 0.3 MPa.
