Overview

Polyurethane Liquid Foam

DPU200 is a liquid transforming into a rigid foam and is ideal for insulation and shaping. It exhibits good compressive strength. It has a small cell structure, ideal for pouring in areas requiring structural rigidity .


Features

  • High thermal conductivity
  • Dimensionally stable in large temperature ranges
  • Easy mixing ratio

Information

  1. Procedure for machine mixing hand pour rigid polyurethane foam . Hand Pour Polyurethane foam should be mixed 1:1 by volume or 100 to 115 (B or Brown component) by weight. Use a scale to measure A and B weight before mixing. (Determine amount required) . By volume make sure heights on buckets are exactly same and use same size buckets
  2. To Determine Volume: Free rise foam weighs approximately 200gms per litre or 200kg for 1000litre or 1 m3. Determine cavity volume and multiply times foam in – place density. (Example: 1mx1mx1m will need 200kg or 93kg A and 107kg of B . Urethane foam requires a pack factor to fill enclosed cavities. ( be careful do not exceed 10% overpack)
  3. TO MAKE FOAM
    Prepare a small can of cleaner for rinsing mixer.
    Pour predetermined weights of A and B chemicals in separate containers.
    15 to 30 deg C is optimum. When ready to mix, pour one chemical into the other and mix with propeller type paint mixer. Clean mixer with mineral spirits or acetone
    Pour mixture into mould or cavity and let expand.
    If moulding, demould in 12 to 15 minutes.

    Notes: IF a moulded part is required – apply wax or apply barrier coat to mould. Allow wax or barrier coat to dry. Clamp mould before foaming. Be careful Expanding foam will develop pressure when moulding.

    ITEMS Required Mixing containers.
    Propeller type mixer and drill motor. (Paint mixer is ok)
    Cleaning solvent for mixer.
    Pour within 1 min to ensure maximum viscosity of mix.

    Maximum properties may be achieved after 7 days
