Microcell Foam Boards support fine detail work.

October 20, 2014

Featuring uniform, ultra-smooth design, LAST-A-FOAM® FR-4600 Microcell prototype and modeling foam boards cut crisply and support fine detail work, satisfying needs of boat makers. In lower densities, products are suitable for hand-carved models, prototypes, and decorative fixtures. Higher densities are easily milled by machine to create intricate tooling. Tight microcell texture creates superfine surface that can be finished and painted without filling and sanding. Read More

Polyurethane Blocks provide thermal insulation.

September 30, 2014

Part of LAST-A-FOAM® R-9300 Continuous Insulation Block Series, Precast/Tilt-up Concrete Wall Panel Blocks are made of high-density rigid cellular polyurethane material, which prevents thermal energy transfer between building and ground when installed under load-bearing precast, tilt-up, brick, and block walls. Closed-cell structure is inert and prevents absorption of moisture so it does not rot or dissolve in subgrade applications, or promote corrosion of steel components. Read More

Polyurethane Insulation Blocks offer alternative to wood.

January 23, 2014

Providing thermal isolation while supporting heavy structural loads, LAST-A-FOAM® R-9300 Continuous Insulation Blocks extend insulation from below ground to roof of industrial and cold-storage buildings. Blocks are made of high-density rigid cellular polyurethane with closed-cell structure that is inert and prevents moisture absorption. Combination of compressive strength with minimal deflection and optimized thermal insulation values minimizes thermal bridging through adjoining materials. Read More
