Our polyurethane is an 8lb Expanding Polyurethane that we use to mold light weight products, such as corbels, shutters and vent covers. They are typically installed and finished by Stucco/EIFS contractors
About our expanding polyurethane
Learn more about our high quality polyurethane to use it for your next foam project.
Dense Strength and Lightweight
‘8lb’ refers to the density of the foam, our polyurethane foam has a density of 8/ft3. This density makes the foam relatively light, yet it is still sturdy enough for making various products.
Wide Product Range
With polyurethane, we can mold a broad spectrum of products such as corbels, shutters, and vent covers.
Ease of Transportation
Our products are typically installed and finished by Stucco/EIFS contractors, ensuring a top-notch final appearance.
What Is Polyurethane and Expanding Polyurathane?
Polyurethane is an incredibly versatile material with applications across a wide range of industries. Polyurethane coatings are ideal for any application where surfaces are subject to higher levels of wear-and-tear and where excellent chemical/physical resistance is required.
It’s a type of polymer made by reacting a diisocyanate with a polyol, and it can be tailored to exhibit various properties depending on the specific needs of the application. Polyurethanes can be found in several forms, including flexible foams, rigid foams, coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers.
Expanding polyurethane foam begins as a liquid two-part mixture that, when combined, begins a chemical reaction that causes the mixture to expand and harden into a foam. This foam can then be cast into molds to create a variety of shapes and designs.
Polyurethane in the Casting and Architecture Sector
In The Casting Sector
In the casting sector, expanded polyurethane is widely used due to its versatility, durability, and ease of shaping. It can be cast into nearly any shape and size, which allows for its use in a wide range of applications. Here are some of the ways expanded polyurethane is used in casting:
In The Architecture Sector
As for architecture, polyurethane does play a role, though it may not be expanded polyurethane specifically:

On top of polyurethane, we also provide modified GFRG casting
Expanding Polyurethane and Modified Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (Modified GFRG) are materials utilized in the construction industry. Both are praised for their lightness and adaptability, but they possess unique properties and applications due to their distinct compositions.
Modified GFRG (Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum)
- Modified GFRG is a variant of GFRG that incorporates acrylic polymers into its base material, which enhances its weather resistance and durability.
- While GFRG is traditionally used for interior applications due to its susceptibility to weathering, the acrylic polymers in Modified GFRG make it suitable for exterior use as well.
- Despite this, it’s not a direct replacement for other exterior materials like GFRC or precast concrete products.
- Typical uses of Modified GFRG include non-load-bearing architectural elements, which require a balance of lightness, design flexibility, and durability.
Both Expanding Polyurethane and Modified GFRG offer unique benefits – the lightness and malleability of polyurethane and the enhanced weather resistance of Modified GFRG. However, they have distinct applications due to differences in their compositions (polyurethane vs gypsum with acrylic polymers), durability, and aesthetic versatility. The choice between the two will hinge on the specific requirements of the project.
