Elasta-shield Smooth, Vinyl-Acrylic Protective Skin, Flexible Foam Coating for Architecture, Theater, Entertainment Sculpture, Arts & Crafts
Dries clear. Water-soluble, flexible shield protects EPS foam for general handling. Will act as an adhesive for applying fabrics if they are applied while Elasta-Shield is wet. Can be brushed, rolled, or sprayed. Covers 320 sq. ft. at 5 mils.
Elasta-Shield provides a flexible adhesive bond between many scenic materials, such as fabrics, plastics, foams and wood. Elasta-Shield dries to a clear, hard, yet pliable coating that does not suffer from the "tackiness" common in many other flexible glues even after those glues have had days to dry. And unlike ordinary "white" glues which can crack and break when flexed, the adhesive bond of Elasta-Shield remains extremely pliable and strong even as the materials bend and deform. Elasta-Shield is water based, and very safe to use, with little fume and low toxicity.
SUGGESTED USE: Use Elasta-Shield to adhere fabrics to fabrics, fabrics to wood, foam to wood or fabric and many other combinations of materials common in scene shops. Elasta-Shield provides an excellent coating over Ethafoam™ that allows this notoriously difficult foam to be painted with ease. With its super adhesion, Elasta-Shield can be used to laminate blocks of foam together. It can be thinned with water, tinted with universal, or used as an additive to give other coatings like plaster or clay added flexibility.
APPLICATION: Apply by brush, roller, or spray gun.
SURFACE PREPARATION: Surfaces should be clean, dry and free of dirt and dust. When applying Elasta-Shield to vinyls or plastics, clean your surface with denatured alcohol to remove any excess plasticiser that might interfere with proper bonding.
COMPATIBILITY: Elasta-Shield is compatible with all water based coatings and is easily painted or tinted. TintElasta-Shield using, Universal Tints, or simple latex paint. Add Elasta-Shield to other water based coatings as an additive to increase flexibility and adhesion.
MIXING: Stir before using. Do not shake as bubbles may develop.
DILUTION: Use Elasta-Shield undiluted on most non-porous and porous surfaces. Elasta-Shield may be diluted with water if desired. Thinner mixtures will flow and level more than an undiluted application and will dry to a thinner coating.
COLOR: Clear, matte finish.
COVERAGE: Approximately 250 sq. ft. per gallon
FILM THICKNESS: Undiluted 1 mil dry film.
DRY TIME: Varies with application. Sets in 30-45 minutes. Hard in 1-2 hours. Full cure within 7 days.
CLEAN-UP: Soap and water.
