Composite Metal Foam is, as the name implies, foam made from metals. Thanks to its Swiss cheese-like structure, the material is much lighter than normal metal. In earlier studies, researchers from North Carolina State University showed that CMFs are effective at blocking X-rays, gamma rays and neutron radiation, and are capable of absorbing the energy of high impact collisions. The material also insulates better against high heat than the conventional base metals and alloys, such as steel. These findings mean the metal foams could be used in nuclear safety, space exploration and medical technology applications.
