To study the mechanical behavior and energy absorption ability of polyurethane foam/honeycomb paperboard
composite material under the static compression test.
The static compression tests of polyurethane foam/honeycomb paperboard composite material are conducted by electronic
universal testing machine. The mechanical behavior under the condition of static compression and the factors influencing
the composite materials’ static cushioning properties were analyzed. Then, a comparison was made based on the energy
absorption ability between composite materials and simple materials.
The yield stress, strength and other indicators of foam/honeycomb paperboard have doubled the growth after filling
polyurethane. The aperture size is the main influencing factor affecting the static cushioning properties of composite
The energy absorption amount of composite materials is about 1.85 times than the total energy of two simple materials.
