  • Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Chosen By Abroboard For Model Yacht Building. - The Latest in Polystyrene
    Larger Smaller Hits 979 Print Bookmark Abroboard has been around for over 21 years and have made their name creating surfboard blanks With increased overseas competition Abroboard have expanded into model yachts revolutionising the industry and embracing new technology Abroboard s director Graeme Smith has been sailing for over 40 years so he definitely knows what makes a good boat The physical properties that make Foamular an ideal material for model boat making are the same properties that make it ideal for insulation Foamular is a closed cell extruded polystyrene board this means it does not absorb moisture and still holds its shape even when wet Foamular also has high compressive strength so it isn t misshapen by the odd bump or scrape hence your boat will look great for longer foam board carvingCreating model boats is surprisingly complex with every model being created from a sheet of Foamular that is computer cut to create precision shaping down to the nearest mm Foamular is uses because it s very easy to work with but maintains its ridged shape and lightweight properties long after completion Abroboard coats the Foamular blanks with high impact resistant fibre cloth much like carbon fibre but much more cost effective Many new yachts cost 4000 but Abroboard s technological and material advances have helped dramatically reduce the price of a new boat helping many newcomers into the sport One problem with creating unique shapes with Foamular is the potential waste created form off cuts Abroboard helps to minimise this by keeping an eye out for innovative recycling systems Abroboard regularly donates off cuts to other model makers or re uses Foamular around the workshop to create other items like boat stands Foamular has an extensive history in model making It has been used in model railways

  • Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Used To Create Model Railways - The Latest in Polystyrene
    Hits 701 Print Bookmark Foamular Extruded Polystyrene has always been a versatile product It has been used for roof membranes render substrates insulation inside precast concrete slabs and model trains Foamular s versatility comes from its manufacturing Extruded Polystyrene is a closed cell structure that once manufactured maintains its rigidity does not absorb water and maintains its insulation values 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 model making foam boarkThe lightweight nature of Foamular makes it ideal for people who may need to move their models this makes it useful for children people with limited space and professionals who need to move their models often The closed cell rigid structure also means that with time Foamular wont 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 Many Model Railroad builders have successfully used Foamular as 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 Sheets of Foamular can be glued together to create extravagant landscapes and giant models Foamular can be sculpted to create almost any model while its closed cell structure means object like trees and decorations can be

  • Extruded Polystyrene Recycled content boosted to 20% - The Latest in Polystyrene
    the board perfectly flat and trimming of excess product there can be large amounts of wasted produced which normally go straight to landfill Foamular now recycles that waste directly back into the product limiting the waste sent to landfill but also reducing the raw materials required to produce the product Recycled post production waste is better than general waste because it is guaranteed to be clean and free of contaminants This helps guarantee Foamular s high R values and overall product quality so projects can be green without sacrificing on quality recycled insulation boardOld Extruded polystyrene can also be easily recycled again and again with little effort DWF airport reused 88 of the Extruded polystyrene on its 28 000 square meter roof after 17 years of exposure to extreme conditions Foamulars high R values were maintained and its high compressive strength meant the boards had not disfigured at all This was estimated to save the builder over 15 000 in landfill costs and 100 000 in labour costs Austech External Building Products also offer a range of Zero Ozone Depletion Potential ODP Extruded Polystyrene for highly eco conscious projects Polyboard Enviro 300 offers the high R values and strength of traditional extruded polystyrene but is made with a patented blowing agent that does not release any chemicals with Ozone Depletion Potential Polyboard Enviro 300 can also be used towards Green Star accreditation and a range of other environmental credentials Extruded polystyrene has an exceptionally long lifetime of 50 years so it doesn t need to be replaced often reducing the need for landfill space or recycling of old material Expanded polystyrene on the other hand only lasts around 7 12 years before it starts to degrade under regular conditions Once expanded polystyrene degrades it lets in moisture which causes a
