Abstract

Metallized, open-celled, electrically conductive polymer based foams, such as polyurethane foams, are well known in the art. The open-celled polyurethane foams are coated uniformly with a thin film of metal by any one of several commercial techniques, such as vapor deposition or electroless deposition. For example, an aluminum vapor deposition technique or an electroless nickel deposition process may be used to deposit the respective metals upon the polyurethane foam materials.
