Flotation Foam

Flotation Foam is a polyurethane 2 part foam that, when mixed in equal parts and poured in place this foam will soundproof, insulate, or provide extra buoyancy. 2 Lb. density. Flotation range is 100-120 lbs./qt. and 480-600 lbs./gal.

This expandable foam is recommended for void filling in nonstructural applications. It can be poured underneath decks and inside cavities where a lightweight flotation foam is needed to provide buoyancy. This foam has been tested in accordance with U.S. Coast Guard Regulation # 33 CFR 183.114 . This foam is approximately 95-98% closed cell which resists absorbing water, however continuous water submersion can eventually lead to loss of buoyancy over a period of years.

Tech Spec Product Info User Generated Content
  • This two-part liquid, expanding rigid urethane foam is a closed cell, pourable foam, which will resist the absorption of water.
  • The densities shown refer to the weight per cubic foot of expanded foam (12 in. x 12 in. x 12 in.).
  • Once fully cured this foam can be laminated over with any type of polyester, epoxy or vinyl ester resin without melting.
  • This product can be poured in multiple layers with excellent bonding between layers.
  • All expansion rates and times given are temperature critical. Temperatures below 75 degrees F will lower the expansion rate therefore requiring more foam. Ideal working temperature is 75 to 80 degrees F or above.
  • Accurate measuring of these products is extremely critical.
  • Working time before foaming: approx. 45 seconds
  • Time before full expansion: approx. 5 minutes
  • The lightweight foam is commonly used for filling voids, filling under decks and practically any other flotation or insulation application. Higher densities are used for architectural castings, support applications and has virtually an unlimited number of potential uses.

    Note: One Quart Kit expands to approximately 2 cubic feet, while the gallon kit expands to approximately 8 cubic feet. For more info check out the How-to's and Technical Data Sheets to the left.

In searching for this foam I found Jamestown to be lower in pricing for a larger amount of product. All other companies who offered this same foam were higher in price for a less amount. [...] There was no direction in using the product so I contacted Jamestown who walked me thru step by step. Excellent customer service and I would not only recommend this product but recommend Jamestown Distributors when purchasing anything for you boating needs. I purchased a boat that had major water damage so I ripped out everything including the rooted wood and foam. I re-fliberglass and left holes to pour this foam into. The reason I am writing a blog because the directions: I used 8oz cups - 1 for part A and 1 for part b - stirred for 30 seconds mixing well - poured in and foam expanded to a very hard shell - worked great!

Product was great! The package was dented bad and was not properly packaged. Jamestown also added a $16.00 charge for handling that was not in the final price when I checked out (beware) I will not order from this place again. But the product worked as sold.

      Comments about Jamestown Distributors Flotation Foam:

      I used it to replace the under-seat flotation in an old aluminum boat. Did a great job. Filled the voids effectively and solidly. But since the foam sticks securely to whatever it touches, there was some scraping and clean-up necessary.

          If you prep the area ( plastic sheeting,paper towels/rags, rubber gloves ) it is a breeze using this product. It helps to do a dry run , measuring , mixing, pouring and possible clean-up before hand.

            This product was easy to use and gave amazing results! My only mistake was that I mis-calculated how much I would need. Which ... in turn is going to be a plus since I am now going to be able to use the surplus on additional projects. I ordered online but also used the phone in customer service which was very helpful.

            Comments about Jamestown Distributors Flotation Foam:

            I had to put a new tube in my boat for all the rigging on the inside of the hull. This stuff worked perfectly. Prepare for a HUGE mess. It is also very sticky until it dries. I spilled some on the carpet in the boat and it pulled the carpet up when I was trying to clean it off. Not a big deal as I am recarpetting the boat anyway.
            I have a tip for using this in confined areas. The area I was working in was small and I had to get it full all the way into the back. What I did was mix up a batch and pour it into a 1.5" PVC pipe with a wad of paper towel to plug one end. Then I stuck it into the area I was working on and pushed the foam out with a stick. Sorta like a giant syringe. Worked Great and turned out great.

            I invented the innovative new I.T.S.U. Wave Master Kayak/SUP Hybrid for River Masters of Oregon. We fill our kayak/sup with this foam to guarantee flotation over many years of normal use. Normal use in Kayaking terms includes: extreme whitewater, UV exposure, standing water in voids when bilge is not emptied and salt water conditions as well as river water. This foam gives us peace of mind knowing that our customers are not going to sink our water crafts under normal recommended use.

              Pour in place foam is great for boat flotation when restoring waterlogged foam. It expands quickly and is relatively easy to work. Expansion is sometimmes hard to contain. I just let it grow and then cut off the excess.

              Work quickly after getting prepared ( especially in warm weather).

                    I used this to fill the void in the bow of my sit in kayak. I hung the kayak upside down and poured the product in untill i was satisfied.the produt set up fast.a year later i filled the kayak with water and stayed afloat just fine. Good product.Just have help mixing it and timing it, it sets up very fast.
