All purpose foam coat! This rock-hard cement-like coating protects and beautifies your foam projects. Comes in a dry powder - simply mix with water. It's tough but still sandable. It is inherently fire resistant. Can be used outdoors when sealed with any outdoor paint, or mixed with Boost liquid fortifier, or Bounce liquid rubberizer. Apply thick with a trowel or thin with a paintbrush. Sets up in only about 15 minutes. Extend the drying time by adding up to 50% latex paint with your water before mixing into the dry foam coat. 3lbs covers up to 30 square feet. Dollar-for-dollar, our Foam Coat covers 4x as much as Rosco Foam Coat, is at least as strong, and has a longer shelf life. Plus it's compatible with our Boost, Bounce, and Grit!

MIXING: Mix in a clean container with clean water. Use 1 part cool water per 3 parts of powder (for example, 1 cup of water per 3 cups 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 enough 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.
SET TIME: Use within 10 minutes. Sets hard in 30 minutes. Maximum bond and hardness in 24 hours.
FINISHING: Remove dust before painting. This product goes on smooth and can be sanded. Can be used outdoors if sealed with paint. Add Grit texturizer to create a rock-like surface effect.
CLEAN-UP: Clean tools and brushes with clean soapy water before coating hardens.

What customers are saying: "I am working on Halloween projects. This year the theme is "The Island of Dr Moreau," and I have to build an entire office and lab with and a wooden back for next year's western theme. I am using big pink insulation foam panels supported by a PVC frame. The foam coat helps with texture, stability and helps weather-proof the panels for limited outdoor use." - Kerri B., Cary, IL

I have done foam sculpting for over a decade and nothing revolutionized my work more than Hot Wire Foam Factory's basic hot knife sculpting tools and All Purpose Foam Coat. I have found Foam Coat to be easy to use and the ideal way to simply create a variety of textures while giving strength and durability to my creations. It can be mixed thick or thin depending on the need and accepts paint very well. I have used it successfully with objects such as branches, fossils, grass, etc. embedded as decorative elements.
One of my clients is a zoo where I create naturalistic elements such as rock and tree sculptures. After discovering Foam Coat I was able to create interesting environments for the animals in the indoor exhibits instead of just the outside decorative work. This made for a more immersive experience for the guests and an interesting environment for the animals. A stone worker, there for a visit, warned that the "rock" over the glass was too heavy and would stress the glass too much!
Since I also create dinosaurs for a fossil museum I really appreciate the fact that I can make creations in sections and after transport I can blend the parts together seamlessly since the product will blend wet on dry with little effort. Just a bit of wet brushing does the trick. It appears not only seamless but provides the necessary strength and rigidity to support a large sculpture.
Multiple times I have had clients tell me they'd like an interior wall to look like natural rock, but can't afford to have it done. I have shown then how to create the look for very little effort and money using All Purpose Foam Coat.

I just did a bunch of eps carved flowers that I coated with "foam coat" from the "Hot wire Foam Factory"

I think this material is similar to the hydro-cal material. I'm not sure exactly what their recipe is. They have a fortifier additive as well as another additive that created a more flexible surface.

I found it worked quite well. I used latex paint as the liquid ingredient. The nice thing about this is that you can create a recipe that is a little stiffer or thinner as needed.

The product adhered quite well to the eps foam, and stuck well to the board we where finishing on.

The latex paint gave us a longer working time, which seemed to be around the 45 to 60 min time depending upon the mixture.

It does say that you can sand this product, but found it to be difficult to sand by hand. We did not require the finish to be sanded, so I didn't spend allot of time trying to smooth the finish in this way. They did mentions a tapping technique that worked well at leveling the product.

Correspondence with the company was very prompt and helpful. I was doing the coating on a Saturday and Sunday, and they returned my e-mails even on the weekend. Instructions for mixing and application where very straight forward, and the website offered good tips for use.
