This is a dual component spray system that combines liquid polyurea plastic with a catalyst in a hot pressurised system. This is skillfully sprayed over a base material, encapsulating it within the liquid plastic. This dries extremely fast as a chemical reaction occurs between the plastic and catalyst, leaving very durable and flexible skin. This can be used over almost any base material, because of its durability and speed of finish, we use it a lot for polystyrene sculptures but also over woodwork when needed.
We achieve an unmatched high level of finish with this machine which has come from a lot of practise and our very skilled team. This finish can be a great alternative to GRP surface finishing, which can come with a higher labour cost. We have mastered the use of this surface finishing technique and have used it on numerous Event Prop Hire builds.
With any bespoke build or product, surface finish is a very important factor. When we design and build at EPH Studios, it’s something we like to discuss early and show the different final finishes available. Chosen finish tends to be defined by project budget and the use and aesthetic of the end product.
