Rigid Foam Insulation

Rigid foam insulation has the highest insulating values of any conventional foam insulation commercially available today. Very low conductivity gases trapped in the closed cellular structure reduce heat transfer by conduction. The combination of these properties yields a material that can be used in service between –100° F to 200° F. Rigid foam board insulation is moisture resistant, dimensionally stable, air tight, resistant to the transfer of heat through and has the ability to perform a structural role.

Structural / Core Foam

Foam Sign - Our most popular foam for sign fabrication is rigid urethane sign board. Rigid sign board is a rigid, closed cell, high-density urethane foam material. This rigid foam is an excellent material for use in signs and billboards along with other carving applications. Rigid sign board is completely waterproof and impervious to solvents, which makes it an excellent foam to use indoors and outdoors. High or low environmental temperatures, rain, snow, or ice has no affect on this high-quality material. Many of our customers routinely use this foam to make high-quality signs for outdoor and indoor applications.

PVC Foam - Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) foam is a material that possesses the properties to increase the efficiency of items even as important as space shuttles and naval ships. PVC foam is a material that possesses these unique characteristics that are desirable in these fields. PVC foam is an ideal core material for constructing such structures because of its high bending stiffness, strength, weight, and ability to reduced acoustical noise. PVC foam is also used as a sandwich core material for the marine industry.

Polyurethane is a unique material that offers the elasticity of rubber combined with the toughness and durability of metal. Urethane is available in a diverse range of hardness which allows the engineer to replace rubber, plastic, and metal with a product that is more resistant to abrasion with more desirable physical properties. Urethanes have better abrasion and tear resistance than rubbers, while offering higher load bearing capacity. Urethanes have replaced metals in sleeve bearings, wear plates, sprockets, rollers, and various other parts. Some benefits include weight reduction, noise abatement, and wear improvements.
