Making Flame Rated Themed Elements with Habitat Cast N Coat™ Epoxy

Overview

In this project, a Tiki Mask for a Tiki-themed bar is cast out of flame-rated Habitat Cast N Coat epoxy.

Habitat Cast N Coat is a flame-rated (E84, Class A) filled, liquid epoxy that can be cast solid or thickened for brushing or troweling onto vertical surfaces.

Habitat Cast N Coat™ is a filled, two component (A+B) liquid epoxy that can be cast solid or thickened for brushing on / troweling on to vertical surfaces. Material cures to a rock-hard solid with negligible shrinkage.  Mix ratio is 1A:1B by volume. Working time is 85 minutes and material cures overnight (at room temperature). SO Strong®, UVO® or Ignite® colorants can be added to liquid Cast N Coat™ during mixing to create a variety of color effects. Cured epoxy can be sanded and painted with acrylic paints.

Habitat Cast N Coat™ certifies to the highest flame rating available (ASTM E84, Class A), making this material ideal for public space fabrication applications. Also, it does not contain VOC’s, phthalates or crystalline silica (a known carcinogen) and is safe for making elements used in proximity to animals/reptiles and aquatic life.

Epoxy bonds permanently to itself or a variety of surfaces and can be applied as a fire rated protective/decorative coating to EPS or rigid foam, wallboard, plaster, wood, PVC and more. Habitat Cast N Coat™ is also an excellent repair cement and bonds permanently to itself, PVC, Plexiglas® (acrylic), wood, many metals, plastics and foams.
