FOAM-iT!™ 8 – 1.36kg is a two-component water blown rigid foam that is versatile and easy to use. FOAM-iT!™ 8 products are available in 1.36kg and 10.89kg packs. Parts A and B are measured and mixed 2A:1B by weight.

The mixture is then poured into a mold or other form (apply release agent if necessary). The mixture will expand many times original volume (depending on which FOAM-iT!™ product you are using) and develop a uniform cell structure. FOAM-iT!™ 8 is a unique, selfskinning foam with a finer, more uniform cell structure than the other FOAM-iT!™ products.

FOAM-iT!™ 8 can be cast in blocks as a machinable prototype modeling board.

Changing your Mind / Right to Cancel

If you change your mind for any reason, goods can be returned to us for a full refund if notified to us within 7 days of delivery; you have a further 7 days to dispatch the goods for their return to us. Goods returned after 7 days will incur a 15% restocking fee of the items being returned.

NO GOODS manufactured or sold by Advanced Materials Technology Pty Ltd will be accepted for a credit if returned after one (1) calendar month of original invoice date.

To return goods that are not faulty (i.e. because you changed your mind) they must be unused and, in the condition, they were delivered to you in. This does mean that, unless found faulty, we are unable to accept returns for:

  • Opened containers of resin, hardener, silicone or chemical release agent, unless found to be faulty or defective.
  • Unrolled and improperly re-rolled fabrics, unless found to be faulty or defective.
  • Any product that you have subsequently cut, shaped, broken or modified, unless found to be faulty or defective.

Refund of Delivery Charges (Cancelled Orders)

If you return an order in its entirety, then your outbound delivery charges will also be refunded (for orders within the South Africa’s Local Area’s.

If you return only part of an order, then the outbound delivery charge refund will be calculated based on the total postage cost of the original order (using standard service) minus the cost to send the items you are keeping (using standard service). Due to the way that shipping costs are incremented, this will often result in no delivery charge refund being due.

Faulty or Defective Goods

Any goods found to be faulty or defective and notified to us within 7 days of delivery can be returned to us for a full refund.

Refund of Delivery Charges (Faulty/Defective Goods)

If you are returning faulty or defective goods, then your outbound and return delivery costs will be refunded in full (for orders from within South Africa’s Local Area’s.)

In the event that you are returning faulty or defective goods which were ordered as part of a larger order then the outbound delivery charge refund will be calculated based on the total postage cost of the original order (using standard service) minus the cost to send the items you are keeping (using standard service).

Please check the box to acknowledge our return’s policy, by doing so you agree to our Return’s Policy of AMT Composites stated above.

FOAM-iT!™ 8 – 1.36kg can be used as a straight casting material, backfill material for hollow castings (adds structural strength) or as an encapsulation material, etc.

They can be color pigmented with SO-Strong™, UVO™ or IGNITE™ colorants and are used for a variety of art/ craft, industrial design and special effects applications.

FOAM-iT!™ 8 – 1.36kg Instructions

Preparation

  • Store and use at room temperature (73°F/23°C).
  • Use in a low humidity environment (below 50% RH).
  • Mixing containers should have straight sides and a flat bottom.
  • Mixing sticks should be flat and stiff with defined edges for scraping the sides and bottom of your mixing container.
  • Good ventilation (room size) is essential.
  • This product has a limited shelf life and should be used as soon as possible.
  • Wear safety glasses, long sleeves and rubber gloves to minimize contamination risk.

Because no two applications are quite the same, a small test application to determine suitability for your project is recommended if performance of this material is in question.

IMPORTANT: Shelf life of product is reduced after opening. Remaining product should be used as soon as possible. Immediately replacing the lids on both containers after dispensing product will help prolong the shelf life of the unused product. XTEND-IT™ Dry Gas Blanket (available from AMT Composites) will significantly prolong the shelf life of unused liquid urethane products.

Applying a Release Agent

Urethane foams are adhesive and will stick / bond to many surfaces. We recommend Ease Release™ 2831 to release urethane foam from most surfaces. If the release application is particularly difficult (example; releasing urethane foam from urethane rubber), we recommend an application of Universal™ Mold Release followed by an application of Ease Release™ 2831.

WARNING: Do not use Universal Mold Release by itself, or any other silicone based release agents. This will collapse the foam.

Measuring & Mixing

Liquid urethanes are moisture sensitive and will absorb atmospheric moisture. Mixing tools and containers should be clean and made of metal, glass or plastic. Materials should be stored and used in a warm environment (73°F/23°C). Know the mix ratio for FOAM-iT!™ 8. After dispensing the correct amounts of Parts A and B into mixing container, mix thoroughly for 45 seconds. Stir quickly making sure that you scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing container several times. Be careful not to splash low viscosity material out of the container. Remember, foams cure quickly. Do not delay between mixing and pouring.

Pouring & Curing

For best results, pour your mixture in a single spot at the lowest point of the containment field and let the mixture seek its level. Allow space in the containment field for the foam to grow as it expands to its ultimate volume. Allow foam to cure for at least 20 minutes before handling. Cure time will be affected by mass and mold configuration.

Mass Concentration / Mold Configuration

Pouring large amounts at a time in certain mold configurations (i.e. cylinder) could cause excess heat to be generated and result in splitting (fissures). Step pouring in layers may resolve this problem.

Improving Surface Finish & Minimizing Voids With Back Pressure

Capping the mold cavity opening with a board that has predrilled holes will improve surface finish for some foams. For more information, watch the video at smooth-on.com/backpressure

Fully Cured FOAM-iT!™ 8 Foam can be sanded, machined, drilled, etc. (wear NIOSH approved respirator). Foam can also be primed and / or painted.
