What is Moulded Millwork?
Fypon Moulded Millwork is constructed of polyurethane foam created by mixing isocyanate and resin. The mixture is kept under pressure in a mould as it expands to any desired shape. The result is a high-density, thermoset material that is perfect for interior or exterior trim.
Why Polyurethane Millwork?
If you're searching for a product that resists rot, mildew, insects, warping and splintering, you've come to the right place! These are just a few of the reasons architects specify polyurethane millwork for decorative and functional pieces to residential and commercial projects.
Made of high density materials, Fypon pieces have a closed cell structure that prevents water penetration and absorption. Each piece has a consistent quality and finish, which requires no additional priming or sealing. In fact, each piece is coated at our manufacturing location with a double-primed exterior grade ultraviolet stable coating. Once products are installed, they can be painted, stained and faux finished.
Looking for more reasons to specify polyurethane millwork? The products can be used on both the interior and exterior of your projects, are virtually maintenance free and are lighter in weight than wood or plaster, so there's job site savings on time and labor. And, if you want to be a true hero to your clients, you'll appreciate the promise that we ship our standard and special-fabricated millwork pieces within five working days. If you've got some extra time, you can even have us create custom designed pieces for you!
Ever wonder how we can create precision-molded pieces time-after-time? First we start with a detailed, finely crafted original master carved out of wood. That helps us create a production mould. At Fypon, we constantly maintain our masters and our moulds, replacing them if they show even the slightest signs of wear and tear to assure that every piece we produce is top-quality.
Our production moulds are finished with a barrier coat of ultraviolet resistant primer, and then filled with top quality liquid polyurethane. The mould is then sealed and the polyurethane expands under pressure, creating an exact duplicate of the original master.
Following a rigorous quality examination, the piece is finished with an ultraviolet resistant white topcoat of primer. After this, the piece is inspected one last time and then carefully packaged for delivery.
