TRIPOR 224                       High Density

*Tripor 224* is a high density, rigid foam system which may be used to manufacture
mouldings. It is also suitable for structural infill of fibreglass components, and relies on the
thorough mixing of two low viscosity liquids by either hand or machine mix techniques.

Tripor 224' contains no CFC's or HCFCs and therefore has an Ozone Depletion
Potential (O.D.P.) of zero.

Foam Manufacture

The foam is produced by the mixing together of the two Components A and B at a ratio of 1
to. 1 by weight. In hand mixing the Component A should be pre-mixed for at least one
minute to aerate it, before mixing with the Component B. After mixing, the foam should be
immediately transferred to the mould or cavity to be filled, pouring should be finished before
there is any significant amount of expansion. The foam should be processed between the
temperatures of 18 - 25C. The following times are typical for an ambient temperature of
20C (68F). Lower temperatures will give slower reaction, higher temperature faster.
Reaction times will also be affected by the bulk mixed, larger amount will give shorter times,
small amounts longer times.

Mixing Time             40 seconds

Cream Time             75 seconds   (from start of mixing to start of rise)

Tack Free Time            450 seconds (from start of mixing till surface can be lightly

touched without foam sticking)
Rise Time                350 seconds (from start of mixing to end of rise)
Core Density (Free rise)     175kg/M3   weight of foam piece cut from test block divided

by volume of foam piece)
Ratio                     1:1.1        (by weight)


It is extremely important that the drums should be re-sealed immediately after use to prevent
the entry of moisture which will adversely affect the resultant foam. The shelf life of the
materials is four months when stored in sealed drums within the recommended temperature
range of 10 30C, but users are recommended not to hold in stock longer than necessary.

their requirements.
