Press Release Summary:
EURO-SEAL 7000 polyurethane encapsulant, suited for use on carved architectural EPS and polyurethane foam elements, provides protection from thermal expansion and UV degradation and strengthens mechanical impact resistance. Able to dry to touch within 10 sec, 2-component, spray-applied polyurethane coating forms hard, chemical-, moisture-, and fire-retardant encapsulation. It enables fabricators to coat foam parts in production-line fashion.

New Fire Retardant Coating Protects Fragile Decorative Substrates
St. Louis, MO - Despite all the sophisticated testing performed by resin manufacturers and EPS (expanded polystyrene) molders conduct, there's nothing like real-life proof to demonstrate the durability of a "hard coated" architectural foam system. Global Theming Products announces their newest fire retardant polyurethane encapsulant for carved architectural foam elements: EURO-SEAL 7000.
When exposed to constant wind, rain and the curious hands of the public, Global Theming Products LLC's EURO-SEAL 7000 coating adds protection to EPS and polyurethane foam (PUF) from thermal expansion, mechanical impact resistance and UV degradation associated with exterior use.
EURO-SEAL 7000/7001 is rated E-84/Class I for flame spread, according to tests performed by an independent testing laboratory.
On typical architectural applications, this two component, spray-applied polyurethane coating "has shown no loss of impact resistance and degradation to date," said John Henningsen, Spokesperson for the manufacturer's representative.
EURO-SEAL 7000 is a two-component polyurethane spray-applied directly over (EPS) and forms a hard, chemical, moisture and fire retardant encapsulation. The coated part can be handled within seconds of being sprayed. "This fast set process means you can produce more carved or cut foam parts, faster than fiberglass, wood or other materials," added Mr. Henningsen.
EURO-SEAL 7000 gives fabricators the ability to coat their foam parts in a production-line fashion. In the case of creating architectural trim, the incorporation of metal mounting brackets and the addition of an acrylic mastic top coat is a quick and easy process. EURO-SEAL 7000 dries to the touch within 10 seconds and has a life anticipation of decades under most conditions.
EURO-SEAL 7000 adds almost no extra weight to the substrate. Parts do not require heavy cranes to lift into place, or special engineered supports to secure. With as little as a ladder, any person can install architectural foam parts.
