Lightweight composite metal foams have excellent thermal protection compared to conventional metals. The study findings show that these metals could be used in other studies involving heat sensitive materials and space exploration.

Composite metal foams (CMFs) are tough enough to turn an armor-piercing bullet into dust on impact. Given that these foams are also lighter than metal plating, the material has obvious implications for creating new types .

Lightweight composite metal foams are effective at blocking X-rays, gamma rays and neutron radiation, say researchers from North Carolina State University who believe their discovery holds promise for use in nuclear safety and space exploration.
