    Mustafaumu, given your most recent questions, you' be best advised to study more about material properties and general engineering approaches. They key to engineering and developing new and/or different processes is research, typically using material properties to match you design goals.

    divinycell is a trademarked brand name for a specific brand of foam. There are many other foam products that are similar.
