Styroplast Quart Kit 3.5Lbs (226951)
Styroplast coating is a brush-on encapsulant with a fast set time that is designed to provide an impact and fire resistant shell for numerous substrates including EPS/Styrofoam, insulative foams, and wood. Can be sprayed too, but spray-on polyurethane coatings require expensive spray equipment and a self contained breathing apparatus. Very little weight is added to the foam structure reducing the need for structural support. Water resistant and chemically inert once cured, it is human and animal safe. Spray in mold or as a surface coating. Superior hardness, fast cycle time, easy to apply, lightweight and short cure time. Environmentally safe- no VOC's. Superior hardness and greater moisture resistance than epoxies. Size: Quart Kit 3.5Lbs
Styroplast is a two component, 100% solids, one part ISO to three parts poly by volume, slow cure polyurethane coating.
Styroplast is a batch mixed coating applied most commonly by brush or trowel that has been found to have the following applications :
Impact resistant coating for the protection of easily deformable substrates such as EPS and insulative foams.
Structural plastic for use in part fabrication where only a moderate level of impact resistance is required.
Plastic coating which may be textured to splash protect foam, drywall, wood or other architectural substrates from many common liquids.
Aromatic base coat used to provide a continuous surface for stapled wood constructs.
Application in humid conditions may create gas bubbles that rise to the surface during drying. Thoroughly power mix Poly component before beginning to apply. Usually this takes a minimum of 5 minutes per 1 gallon pail with proper mixing equipment. Mix with a slow speed drill and paddle mixer. Hand mixing is fine for small quantities. Mix exact proportions of Part A and B, or the plastic will not harden correctly. An air conditioned room will deliver an ideal low humidity and slow drying environment. Move coated object to a warm area to promote faster drying.
Ordinary paintbrush, notched trowel (preferred), or squeegee.
Applied coating will set in about 2 to 5 hours at 70°F/21°C, depending on film thickness, liquid material temperature and the substrate temperature. Generally complete cure takes from four to five days at room temperature. Product can be placed into service after one complete day of cure at 70°F/21°C minimum. After four days cure, the hardness is around shore 65D . Higher hardness may be attained by post heating the part to 90°F 110°F/32.2°C 43.3°C after 6 hours cure time. Prime or paint the plastic coated part the next day, or preferably later the same day. If you paint after 12 hours you will need to lightly sand the surface, or better to apply an epoxy primer for paint to stick.

Styropalst is self-certified as UL-94 V0 at 60 mils thickness.
QUV results indicate that yellowing may be visibly discerned in neutral or off-white in 2 3 months continuous exposure. Dark colors such as black may persist for almost a year before oxidative damage may manifest itself as chalking. Physical properties, however, do not typically show significant change for even long periods of time.
Hydrolytic Stability: Recovers after 10 days 150°F immersion. Generally resistant to most dilute aqueous agents when cleaned off within 10 hours of contact. Very difficult to stain by virtue of its high hardness and low porosity. Constant or frequent immersion service not recommended.
ISO component contains polymeric isocyanate requiring fresh air supply respirator, gloves, and protective clothing during application.
The shelf is twelve months for Part B and six months for Part A. They will last longer than that when stored properly. The ISO, when left open will suck moisture out of the humid air and cause bubbles. The container should be closed when not dispensing product.
