  • Polystyrene Foams for Building and Construction

    Polystyrene FoamsElasto Proxy custom-fabricates polystyrene foams for building and construction projects that require strong, lightweight, waterproof, and mold-resistant materials.

    Home builders and general contractors need waterproof building materials for kitchens and bathrooms. Commercial construction companies also need specialized materials that can prevent water from weakening structures such as shower frames or sink backsplashes. There are several different categories of water damage, but even the least harmful type (Class 1) can mean costly repairs or renovations.

    Water damage doesn’t just rot and weaken built structures, however. Moisture promotes the growth of mold and other organisms that can harm human health. For example, exposure to so-called “black mold” may cause skin rashes or respiratory distress, especially in children and people with compromised immune systems. Sometimes, these toxic molds remain hidden behind tiles or beneath flooring for years. Continue reading

  • Structural Foams for Strong, Lightweight Insulation

    Structural FoamsElasto Proxy custom fabricates strong, lightweight insulation made from structural foams. Applications include custom baths, signs and displays, and blast mitigation. 

    Structural foams are strong but lightweight materials with a sandwich-like structure. They consist of a foam core that’s sandwiched between two thin but solid layers. During production, a blowing agent is introduced and process parameters are modified. Compared to solid injection molding, the foam molding process provides important design and performance benefits. Structural foams also support cost-effective custom fabrication and can be laminated to other materials in multi-layer composites. Continue reading

  • How Elasto Proxy Supports Infrastructure Projects

    infrastructure projectsInfrastructure projects need sealing and insulation solutions that reduce risk and strengthen product designs. That’s why the industry chooses Elasto Proxy.

    Buildings are more than just enclosed structures. In addition to foundations, roofing, and exterior walls, they contain components such as doors, windows, flooring, and lighting fixtures. Industrial, commercial, and residential buildings also include non-structural systems such as HVAC, plumbing, electrical power, and fire protection. Together, all of these components and systems represent infrastructure – and infrastructure needs sealing and insulation from Elasto Proxy. Continue reading
