NEW TECHNIQUE 'EXTRUDES' FOAM BUILDINGS

AN IDEA IS PRESENTED FOR EXTRUDING FOAMED-IN-PLACE INTEGRAL SKIN SANDWICH STRUCTURES. THE MIDWEST APPLIED SCIENCE CORPORATION (MASC) HAS CHOSEN A TWO-COMPONENT, FILLED EPOXY AS MOST SUITABLE FOR BUILDING CONSTRUCTION. THE ERECTOR CONSISTS OF AN ARTICULATED BOOM SYSTEM ON WHICH THE TRAVELING MOLD IS MOUNTED AND THROUGH WHICH MATERIAL COMPONENTS ARE FED TO THE HEAD AT THE MOLD. IT ALSO CARRIES COOLING LINES TO THE MOLD. FOAMING EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLY TANKS MOUNTED ON THE TRUCK COMPLETE THE SELF-CONTAINED SYSTEM. THE MOST UNIQUE COMPONENT IS THE TRAVELING MOLD WHICH BASICALLY WILL CONSIST OF TWO 36 IN. LONG STEEL PLATES AND TWO ENDLESS, EMBOSSED, MYLAR RELEASE BELTS. WITH SUCCESSIVE PASSES, ANY DESIRED HEIGHT CAN BE ACHIEVED FROM FOAMED IN PLACE SEGMENTS 9-12 IN. HIGH. NO TRIMMING WILL BE NECESSARY BETWEEN PASSES.
