Dynamic Systems, Inc.
High-performance, specialty viscoelastic seat foam: SunMate®, Pudgee®, and Liquid SunMate® Foam-in-Place Seating for custom molding.

Foams developed in the 1970s by company founder and aeronautical engineer Charles Yost following extensive research for NASA into ways to improve human survival in aircraft emergencies.

SunMate® high-energy dissipation cushions are high-density, 5 lb/ft3, with slow-rebound. SunMate® combines impact safety, vibration absorption, and soft pressure properties to reduce pilot fatigue and provide maximum comfort. Choose from a range of 8 different densities to support any weight distribution, comfort preference, or support need.

SunMate® and Pudgee® foams maintain their properties in extreme temperatures, are durable, long-lasting, and are formulated with 33%-50% natural plant material so they burn with low toxicity in a fire. SunMate® FRG passes TB 117 and FAR 25.853a.

Used as cushion material to build a wide variety of aircraft seating, including military aircraft: ejection and helicopter seating, private and executive aircraft, gliders, kit planes, and more.

Free samples available upon request. Affordably priced. Discounted overstock available.
