  • Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Used To Create Model Railways - The Latest in Polystyrene
    a baseboard for their creations Mike Nagle Austech s Product Manager for Foamular has said We get calls almost every week from avid railway creators who have seen other models with Foamular and want to recreate the realistic terrain Foamular is superior to other base materials like wood plastics and white polystyrene Its closed cell structure means it can be cut and shaped with traditional woodwork tools to create realistic mountain ranges lakes boulders buildings and roads The list is endless The closed cell rigid structure also means that with time Foamular won t crack warp or degrade Once your model is created it will be displayable for a long time with minimal maintenance Foamular s natural colour is a dull yellow and can easily be painted using acrylic paints after a light sanding giving an almost unlimited colour pallet Paint can be applied through a brush roller or spray gun to make the perfect texture and finish The lightweight nature of Foamular makes it ideal for people who may need to move their models which makes it useful for children people with limited space and professionals who need to move their models often Sheets of Foamular can be glued

  • Foamular Used in Model Making - The Latest in Polystyrene
    15 years and couldn t be happier With around 40 years experience in the field he has become somewhat an expert in choosing the right material John specialises in model railways and started out by using wood as the basis for his layouts He quickly converted to Foamular which proved to be much more efficient during the construction of the display Largely due to its lightweight characteristics He says he started with Foamular in the mid 1990 s and hasn t looked back since Impressed with its compressive strength braced right and you can stand on it extruded polystyrene for model makingJohn teamed up with friend Geoff Nott for their latest piece titled the Charging Moose Model Railway The layout was constructed from start to finish in 9 months Another layout assembled by the pair compiled with Foamular called Muskrat Ramble is due to be sent over to the U S and put on show in North Carolina in front of model making enthusiasts at a four day long convention The display can be viewed from July 12 15 at the Baulkham Hills Council showground Extruded Polystyrene sheets are 25 100 mm thick which can be cut and shaped into

  • Taronga Zoo Picks Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Insulation For Their New Entrance - The Latest in Polystyrene
    original iconic building is heritage listed so the zoo has decided to expand the entrance and restore the original building to its former glory underslab insulationThe new entrance will have a Hydronic Floor Heating System supplied and installed by ComfortHeat Floor Heating Systems The system will keep the concrete floor slab at a constant temperature year round reducing the need for other heating cooling systems and keeping running costs down to a minimum Hydronic Floor Heating Systems are an efficient way to heat large open spaces for extended periods of time but they do require constant input Heat from the system continuously leaks out of the slab and into the ground around it so the heating system has to work harder to maintain this increasing running costs and putting extra strain on the system Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Insulation was placed below the heating system limiting the heat transfer into the ground Foamular can also be placed on the side edge of the slab wrapping the whole slab in insulation and creating a continuous thermal barrier There is also a strong safety value in underfloor heating in public places because any spills or wet floors dry much quicker Zoos are very
