Hot Wire Foam Factory Wire Tensioner for Sculpting Tool

The Sculpting Tool Wire Tensioner holds the cutting wire taught when you don't need to shape the wire or loop it outward for sculpting negative cuts. Now you can easily do freehand scroll cutting. Instructions: First snap the plastic wire tensioner in place. The nuts that hold the arms in place should stick slightly into the holes in the tensioner. Now press the brass arms securely into the half rounds in the tensioner. Mount the cutting wire on one arm, then pull the arms together just enough to create tension on the wire while attaching onto the other arm.

HWFF Foam Coating Products

Hot Wire Foam Factory Styroplast

Whether you are producing signage or protecting delicate forms for themed scenery, Styroplast will outperform all other coatings. Brush-on encapsulant with fast set time that is designed to provide an impact and fire resistant shell for numerous substrates including EPS/Styrofoam, insulative foams, and wood. Can be sprayed too, but spray-on polyurethane coatings require expensive spray equipment and a self contained breathing apparatus. Styroplast is a two component, 100% solids, one part ISO to three parts poly by volume, slow cure polyurethane coating.

Very little weight is added to the foam structure reducing the need for structural support. Water resistant and chemically inert once cured, it is human and animal safe. Spray in mold or as a surface coating. Superior hardness, fast cycle time, easy to apply, lightweight and short cure time. Environmentally safe - no VOC's. Superior hardness and greater moisture resistance than epoxies.

APPLYING: Apply according to directions on Foam Coat.
SET TIME: Grit will not change the set or cure time for Foam Coat.
CLEAN-UP: Immediately clean tools and brushes with soapy water.
FINISHING: May be painted or stained. Cannot be easily sanded.

Use up to 1/3rd of a 3 lb container of Grit with a 3 lb container of our Foam Coat.

Hot Wire Foam Factory Bounce (16 oz) Liquid Rubberizer

Incredible Bouncing Foam Boulders? This liquid rubberizer makes our Foam Coat flexible and highly resistant to cracking on impact. Bounce also makes Foam Coat able to go on thinner, weatherproof, and stick even better to most porous materials. Use 16 oz of Bounce with 3-10 pounds of dry Foam Coat.

Mixing: Use Bounce with no added water for maximum flexibility. The Foam Coat comes out more flexible when no or less water is added to the Bounce. Start with 1 part liquid to 1 part Foam Coat, and thin or thicken as desired. Thinning the Foam Coat with more Bounce will not weaken it, and will allow very strong thin layers to be applied, so you don't lose details. Try a mixture of 9 parts Bounce to one part Foam Coat for a super rubbery coating. Thin layers can be applied to vertical and inverted surfaces with little or no sagging. Apply alone, or with just a little bit of Foam Coat as a strong flexible paintable sealant. Dilute the Bounce with water before mixing with Foam Coat to get a less flexible, super smooth, chip-resistant surface.
Applying: Fill holes with pasty mixture. To coat large areas, add more liquid until thin enough to apply with a paint brush. May be applied as thick as 3/8 inch, but multiple coats are stronger. Looks like smooth stone when dry. Try texturing the surface before coating sets. Bounce is compatible with our Grit Texturizers.
Set Time: Use within 15 minutes. Sets up in 30 minutes. Maximum bond and strength in 24 hours.
Clean-Up: Immediately clean tools and brushes with soapy water.
Finishing: Paint or stain as desired.

Hot Wire Foam Factory Boost (16 oz) Liquid Rubberizer

Bulletproof foam? Not yet, but this is about as close as you will get. When Boost liquid fortifier is mixed with our Foam Coat it makes it incredibly strong and weatherproof, plus makes it stick to almost anything! Use 16oz of Boost with 6-25 pounds of our Foam Coat.

Mixing: Mix with 50% water for maximum strength. Thin more where less strength is needed. Always add the Foam Coat to the liquid. Start with 1 part liquid to 3 parts Foam Coat, and thin or thicken as desired. Thinning the Foam Coat with more Boost will not weaken it.
Applying: Fill large cracks and holes with pasty mixture. To coat large areas, add more liquid until thin enough to apply with a paint brush. May be applied as thick as 3/8 inch, but multiple coats are stronger. Try texturing surface before coating sets.
Set Time: Use within 10 minutes. Sets hard in 30 minutes. Add acrylic paint to extend use time. Maximum bond and hardness in 24 hours.
Clean-up: Immediately clean tools and brushes with soapy water. Boost cannot be removed once dry.
Finishing: May be painted or stained.

Suggested Dilutions Boost/Water: Super Strong: 1:1, Very Strong: 1:2, Strong: 1:3
