Cutting Foam...The Hard Way
For more than 50 years contractors and subcontractors have been incorporating the use of EPS Geofoam and other foam plastics into project solutions for road construction, bridge abutments, structural fill weight reduction, insulation and other uses in construction projects throughout North America.
Stock foam is stored and transported in sheets, rolls, or blocks, which are then further refined to match the intended use. This allows for an almost limitless range of potential applications due to the ways in which foam can be shaped and modified. The challenge has been how to easily transform, shape and cut the blocks or sheets of EPS or XPS in the field to fit a predetermined size and shape. Until recently, the use of hand saws, chainsaws and other common construction tools have been the normal method of cutting and shaping foam sheets and block. That is, until the development and distribution of an innovative new XPS & EPS foam cutter by Foam Cutters, LLC. The XPS foam cutter designed by Foam Cutters, LLC provides a level of ease and efficiency that other cutting methods or products can’t offer.
Cut to Fit...The Easy Way
Foam Cutters, LLC has developed a lightweight, portable and inexpensive Construction Site Hot Wire EPS Foam Cutter (HWFC) for the Construction industry's use in the field to cut EPS and other foam material easily, quickly and without waste or mess. All that is need is access to standard AC power. Simply insert the Nichrome Wire into the brass tabs on the two ergonomically designed handles of the tool, plug in the EPS & XPS foam cutter into AC current and slowly power up the handle mounted transformer to introduce an electrical current to heat the Nichrome Wire. Carefully and slowly set the transformer setting to the appropriate level to effortlessly cut the foam material.
