- Aerospace Standard
Published December 20, 2021 by SAE International in United States
This document describes the initial development, evolution, and use of reticulated polyurethane foam as an explosion suppression material in fuel tanks and dry bays. It provides historical data, design practice guidelines, references, laboratory test data, and service data gained from past experience.
The products discussed in this document may be referred to as "Safety Foam," "Reticulated Polyurethane Foam," "Baffle and Inerting Material," or "Electrostatic Suppression Material." These generic terms for the products discussed in this document are not meant to imply any safety warranty. Each individual design application should be thoroughly proof tested prior to production installation.
This document has been determined to contain basic and stable technology which is not dynamic in nature.

AE-5D Fuel Tank Flammability Reduction Systems Committee
This subcommittee is charged with the responsibility of implementing the scope and objectives of the AE-5 and AC-9 committees that relate to flammability reduction systems in aircraft fuel tanks.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
