Lecture 2 basics of metal-casting 21 casting methods metal casting process begins by creating a mold, which is the ‘reverse’ shape of the part we need the mold is the pattern itself is made by molding – the polystyrene beads and pentane are put inside an aluminum mold, and heated it expands to fill the mold, and takes the shape. Beautiful moulding is a great way to separate beautiful moulding is a great way to separate and define each room with each design modeled after traditional plaster type mouldings our lightweight polyurethane mouldings give the same rich detail yet at a fraction of the cost. Polystyrene, the product is referred to as an expandable polystyrene the blowing agent may be added during the polymerization process (as in the production of expandable beads), or afterwards as part of.
Polystyrene bead molding on september 7th and 14th of 2000 my lab partners and i conducted the polystyrene bead molding project my lab partners are josh dick, mike ward, and keith matlock, and we conducted the procedure in room w126 of the kansas technology center. Polystyrene is a useful material for model builders and other crafters if you wish to make a mold for use in producing several copies of an item, polystyrene is an easy material to work with there are two basic methods for creating a polystyrene mold you can carve it by hand, or you can liquefy. Expanded polystyrene (eps) packaging eps packaging expanded polystyrene (eps) is a relatively modern material (developed in the 50´s) but is beads moulding: the beads from the silos are conducted to a moulding machine where the beads bond molders in the form of a polystyrene bead eps beads are loaded with a blowing agent.
The tiny spherical polystyrene beads are expanded to about 40 times their original size using a small quantity of pentane (typically 5% by weight) as a blowing agent this process involves the heating of beads, using a flow of steam, which causes the blowing agent to boil and thus a honeycomb of closed cells is formed. Properties, performance and design fundamentals of expanded polystyrene packaging expanded polystyrene expanded polystyrene (eps) is a generic term for polystyrene and.
