This study investigated the effect of silica fume microparticles on the properties of polyurethane foam. Results show that the introduction of silica fume microparticles in the foam- composition does not deteriorate the compression strength of the foam. Furthermore the addition reduces the temperature that developed in the foaming process slightly increases the density of the material and reduces water absorption.
