High Density Polyurethane Building Products

First Class Building Products offers high density polyurethane (HDP) materials for residential and commercial construction.  With properties similar to white pine in density, polyurethane is one of the most diverse architectural materials in the market place today.  For decades, polyurethane has been installed on interior and exterior building projects.

Our standard products include thousands of designs including crown moldings, balustrade systems, columns, porch posts, ceiling domes, medallions, brackets, corbels, headers, louvers, and custom architectural details.

HDP is impervious to weather and does not rot.  Particularly effective for exterior applications in areas with coastal climates, high humidity, extreme weather variances and high moisture environments, polyurethane will give long lasting beauty to your project.  For any interior project, polyurethane offers great detail combined with easy installation.  Utilizing standard carpentry tools and installation methods, HDP is installed using adhesive, such as PL Premium, and screws or nails.

Our custom fabrication capabilities enable us to recreate almost any design element for new construction, remodeling or restoration.

 We, at First Class Building Products, Inc., are committed to assisting you with your particular project from specification, shop drawings, manufacturing and installation.  We are available for assistance on design and value engineering.

2.FCBP adhesives refer to PL Premium

 

3.Fasteners refer to nails, screws, bolts etc.

 

3.3 FINISHING

G. Allow adhesive to dry 24-48 hours before beginning the finishing procedure. Cut off any excess adhesive using a utility knife.

 

H. Clean and remove all dirt, oil and greases from surface of product using a wax and grease remover product such as Sherwin-Williams Pro-Clean Professional.

 

I. With 80 grit sandpaper, "rough up" surface surrounding screw or nail holes made during installation to ensure good filler adhesion. Sand all joint areas with 80 grit sandpaper to "rough up" and "blend in" any misalignment of product during installation.

 

J. Once all areas needing repair are "roughed up" and "blended in", remove all dust from the surface of the product, again using the wax and grease remover.

1. Use compressed air to remove the excess sanding dust.

 

K. Apply filler to the areas needing repair. Use a 2- component, light weight automotive filler, such as " Car Systems AutoFit, Eurosoft # CARS134458." Apply the filler using thin coats, sanding between each coat with 120 or 180 grit sandpaper. Apply minimum of 2 coats of filler to get the results detailed in manufacturer's literature.

L. Prime all areas which have had filler applied. Use an interior/exterior latex primer such as Sherwin-Williams A100.

 

M. Caulk seams along bedding edges of moulding, around balusters, and in any other area necessary to provide a clean installation. Use an exterior, paintable exterior Latex caulking such as Sherwin-Williams ProSelect 1100A.
