Batgirl, while chasing a criminal, throws an object in the criminals car. The object erupted with goo pouring out of it and immobilized the criminal. She politely visits the lad and give the explanation above. This awesome display of science leaves us me with questions!
1.) What is polyurethane?
2.) Can it be made into a foam?
3.) Is it pink and does it have the property of absorbing enough shock to help someone in an crash?
2.) Yes, it can be made into a foam. The foams are usually used for packing filer or bedding. The specific use in this comic seems a bid far reaching. However, I do not think it is out of the realm of possibility. The foam in the comic was in a very condensed container, which when activated can produce a massive foam. I could see it producing a tenth of the foam produced, but a chemical produced that quickly is going to be very messy with likely unreacted material, which could be hazardous.
3.) Put a little food coloring among the polyurethane and you have any color you want. Now, as for the crash. The foam being used in the "grenade" is a new untested type of polyurethane. However, it most certainly could cushion the impact.
Thank you for joining along in the fun!
See you next time :D
