How long is foam good for? How do I tell if my Safety Baffling Foam needs replacing?
Longevity of the safety foam baffling depends on the type of fuel used. Generally, fuel cell foam will last about five years if maintained. To determine if your foam needs to be replaced try a pinch-pull test. Take a portion of the foam and pinch/pull it between your index finger and thumb. If the foam is brittle and breaks off in large portions, your foam should be replaced. If your foam stays intact and only sheds small particles, this is normal and should not require replacement. Check your foam at least once a year for the first three years, then twice a year for the following two years, then more frequent the next 5 years.
I know there are many out there that have lasted substantially longer than 5 years.
