New Foam Coating

This year we're introducing a new epoxy formula designed for hot wire cut expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam shapes. EPS foam is now the material of choice for mold and model making. Styropoxy is the best way to get from EPS to decorative precast concrete, GFRC [glass fiber reinforced concrete], GFRG [gypsum], GFRS [stone], and GFRP [plastic or polymer] products.

Styropoxy has the following qualities:

• Thixotropic, meaning it holds on to vertical surfaces better than traditional epoxy.

• Easily applied by brush, roller, or gel coat spray gun.

• Bright blue color for quick and easy visual check of application thickness.

• Dries hard to protect EPS foam from harsh chemicals such as solvent-based compounds, and the concrete casting process.

• Can be used for both foam molds and foam models which a rubber or fiberglass mold can be made from.

• 60 minute and 15 minute quick cure version for either long working time, or speedy turnaround of custom cast products.

2008 Tax Incentives!
Economic Stimulus Act 2008 (USA residents only)
Tax Calculator Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment purchased or financed and put into service during the 2008 tax year.

This means if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment such as a CNC Foam Cutting Machine, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income. It’s an incentive created by the US Government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves.

If you have purchased equipment or plan to purchase in 2008 don't forget to take advantage of this tax incentive. 

See the following graphic for an example of the savings that are available to you.

Here are two links that explain how it works. You will find the small calculator that shows how depreciating equipment faster can generate major savings.
