Epoxy Foam

Video tutorial - using Sicomin PB250 
foaming epoxy

A foaming epoxy resin that is one of the only products on the market which has the following characteristics:

  • Produces a closed cell epoxy foam from a two part epoxy system
  • Available in four standard densities
  • Low expansion pressure
  • Can be used in-situ
  • Finished epoxy foam parts can be used under water
  • Can be used in a continuous process
  • Foaming epoxy can be coloured

Characteristics

  • Closed cell foam production epoxy systems from 170 to 600 kg / m3.
  • The PB 170 / DM 0x, PB 250 / DM 0x, PB 400 / DM 0x & PB 600 / DM 0x systems are two part epoxy formulations which produce closed cell low density foams
  • The densities obtained are respectively about 170, 250, 400 and 600 kg / m3 (open mould expansion)
  • The resulting foam is white but can be coloured with epoxy compatible pigments
  • The hardener modifies the curing time and reachable thickness
  • The mix evolves in two steps: rapid expansion and a slow hardening of the foam

Characteristics

  • Resilient ambient curing epoxy foam
  • Two part epoxy formulation which produces closed cell low density foam
  • The density obtained is approximately 275 kg / m3 (open mould expansion)
  • The resulting foam is white but can be coloured with compatible epoxy pigments
  • The hardener modifies the curing time and attainable thickness
  • The mix evolves in two step; rapid expansion and a slow hardening of the foam
  • Simple 1 to 1 volume ratio
  • Produces resilient foams with better flexural elongation without requiring any post curing cycles.
