PolyFoam R-8 Rigid Casting FoamPolyFoam R-8 is a 1A:1B mix ratio (by weight or volume), self-skinning, rigid polyurethane foam that has a free-rise density of 8 lb. per cubic foot.

PolyFoam rigid foams are excellent for casting functional as well as decorative objects that need to be lightweight and rigid. This product is also great for lightweight mold shells or mother molds. PolyFoam R-8 can be colored with PolyColor Dyes.

PolyFoam R-8 can be poured into PlatSil® or TinSil® silicone molds or into Poly 74-Series & 75-Series polyurethane molds that have been coated with PolyCoat Sealer & Release Agent.

For lower density rigid casting foam, consider PolyFoam R-2 & PolyFoam R-5.
