Overview

This system consists of two components - "X-30" Resin and "X-30" Catalyst. When the resin and catalyst are mixed in equal volumes they expand into a rigid closed-cell foam of 2 pound density. "X-30" Foam expands up to 30 times its liquid volume. Small-batch mixes are recommended. Cured foams can be easily trimmed, cut and shaped with common woodworking tools. Just mix equal amounts of Side A (Resin), and Side B (Catalyst), stir vigorously, and pour into an enclosed area¡Xleaving plenty of room for expansion. X-30 is unaffected by gasoline, oil, solvents or other petroleum products, and is ideal for pour-in-place buoyancy or insulation. Use toluene or MEK for cleanup. "X-30" Foam contains a highly reactive agent and is classified as a toxic material. It is combustible, a strong skin sensitizer and eye irritant. Avoid contact with the skin. Use rubber gloves when handling.

Used for: Flotation, thermal and acoustical insulation reinforcement and miscellaneous void filling. Most small pleasure boats can be made "sink-proof" with approximately two gallons of "X-30". Data sheet available. "X-30" Foam contains a volatile fluorocarbon and should be stored at 70°F. or lower. "X-30" is used on the Osprey II bottom hull, canopy, nose cone, etc., requiring about four gallons of material (two gallons of each). Shelf life at least six months. Users have reported "more than two years shelf life".

Note: When working with X-30 always cover your working surface with plastic film, as X-30 will soak through newspaper or cardboard and will be difficult to remove.

Reviews

Exactly as advertised, works as I expect it. So far its seems to be easy to form, easy to cut, easy to sand and it is light. Also holds very well to other surfaces. Only con is... its a bit more expensive than the stuff that the Marine guys sell.
