Our rock-hard coating protects and beautifies your foam projects. Can be used outdoors when sealed with any outdoor paint or when mixed with Boost or Bounce. Sandable. Apply thick with a trowell or thin to use with a paintbrush. Sets up in only about 15 minutes. Extend drying time by adding up to 50% latex paint with your water before mixing into the dry foam coat. 25lbs. covers up to 300 sq. ft. Dollar-for-dollar covers 4x as much as Rosco Foam Coat, is at least as strong, and has a longer shelf life. Plus it's compatible with Boost, Bounce, and Grit.< This is our fourth generation of Foam Coat, and it is fantastic.
SHIPPING EXCEPTION Bulk 25lb. Foam Coat ships in a seperate box from anything else that you order, so the shipping charges may be more than what you see calculated. If the UPS Shipping charges for the Foam Coat alone come out to more than $14, then make a note in the Notes box at the end of the order form saying that you prefer that we ship by Priority Mail (takes about 3 days) for $16.
MIXING Mix in a clean container with clean water. Use 6.5oz cool water per pound of powder. Add powder to water and mix until Foam Coat turns to a smooth paste. Do not overmix.
APPLYING Fill big cracks and holes by applying pasty mixture with a trowel. You may add more water until mixture is thin enought to apply with a paint brush, although thinning weakens coating. Use thinned mixture to texture large areas. May be applied as thick as 3/8 inch. Try texturing surface before coating sets. Can be used outdoors with no sealing when Boost fortifier or Bounce rubberizer is added. Thinner stronger coats may be applied when Boost or Bounce are added.
SET TIME Use within 10 minutes. Sets hard in 30 minutes. Maximum bond and hardness in 1 day.
FINISHING Remove dust before painting. This product goes on smooth and can be sanded. Add Grit Texturizer for an even stronger stone-like surface. Can be used outdoors if sealed with paint or with no sealing when Boost Fortifier is added.
