Marian has a brand new demonstration piece to share with the world! Strategically named "Test My Memory," the demo illustrates the impact of compression cycling over time with 4 different foams. "Test My Memory" demonstrates that certain foams depreciate as it takes on impact over time, whereas other foams such as PORON® Urethane and BISCO® Silicone resist the compression set, ensuring an excellent seal. Foams that resist a compression set make for a good seal in a gasket because the material rebounds to fill any potential gaps that could allow for water or other outside particles to pass through.

Watch this Youtube video demonstrating how "Test My Memory" works. Go directly to marker 2:30 to see the results.
