Catalyst Foam Basic Instructions
Condition part A and part B to at least 70 F before mixing. Vigorously mix
material in Part A until it homogenizes. Pour part B into Part A and mix for 30 -60 Seconds. Pour foam into place and let cure for at least 20-30 minutes before sanding and cutting. Please use rubber gloves while working with this product!
This foam will allow you to add support and rigidity to shafts without a significant weight increase.
Catalyst Stick Fill A/B is a two component, water blown polyurethane closed foam system. Catalyst Stick Fill A/B does not contain nor release ozone depleting chemicals during it's foam process.
Cured foams of Catalyst Stick Fill A/B demonstrates excellent weight to strength ratio. It provides high flexural strength, thermal stability and adds impact strength to structures supported with Catalyst Stick Fill A/B. Its low viscosity allows easy mixing and pourablity.
Application And Usage
Catalyst Stick Fill A/B can be used to provide internal pressure closed mold wet lay-up or as a light weight core material for molded products. Catalyst Stick Fill A/B's closed cell structure makes it an excellent choice for insulating in cryogenic applications. Catalyst Stick Fill A/B can also be used in acoustical design applications.
