  • Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Chosen By Abroboard For Model Yacht Building. - The Latest in Polystyrene
    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

  • Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Used To Create Model Railways - The Latest in Polystyrene
    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

  • Extruded Polystyrene Recycled content boosted to 20% - The Latest in Polystyrene
    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

  • Foamular Used in $130 Million Westrac Project - The Latest in Polystyrene
    expected to be completed within three years Austech have supplied Foamular Extruded Polystyrene a superior insulation product for the 2 500m2 of insulated precast panels EJE Architecture and Abigroup will be responsible for the design and construction of a new office workshop and training facility on a 23 hectare site The new facility will be the head office for Westrac NSW and also provide staff training via the Westrac Institute Stage one of the development will include the NSW headquarters of Westrac which is a major franchisee of global machinery company Caterpillar CIA Precast of Tomago manufactured of 100 panels many scaling up to 16 tonnes in weight Foamular Extruded Polystyrene can be used to bridge the gap offering exceptional thermal properties and escalating the overall thermal value all while maintaining construction efficiencies Once underway the process using Foamular Insulation and non conductive Reed pins was simple and efficient stated Production Foreman of CIA Precast Steven Quick The extruded polystyrene insulation is sandwiched between two concrete layers held together by non conductive connector ties which minimize the energy draining effects of thermal bridging The insulated sandwich panels significantly enhance the thermal mass performance of the concrete eventuating in consistent internal

    to bridge the gap providing superior thermal properties and increasing the overall thermal value all while maintaining construction efficiencies This is the best way to get the most out of your project and the ideal solution to improve the performance of the walls as well as meeting the BCA part J construction requirements insulation panels for concreteThe extruded polystyrene insulation is sandwiched between two concrete layers held together by non conductive connector ties which minimize the energy draining effects of thermal bridging Buildings with increased performing thermal mass will not require artificial heating and cooling due to a more consistent temperature inside A comfortable internal environment is created through the regulated temperature which is passively created through the superior thermal mass Many buildings in Australia are insulated from the inside not being equipped to take advantage of thermal mass therefore artificial temperature control e g air conditioning exert higher energy levels than it potentially would have to as a result of having to work harder against the conditions After separating the individual pieces and make up of a standard concrete wall panel system it becomes evident that Foamular significantly contributes to the overall insulation values Just 50mm of Foamular has
