The modified Eco-Core was characterized by static confined compression tests. Surface coating with polyurea resulted in an improvement in compression strength by 12%; compression modulus by 64%; and energy absorption density by 14%. The impregnation of Eco-Core with polyurethane enhanced the compression strength by 138% with a penalty of increased density and decreased modulus
