AU&S has supplied polystyrene and polyurethane to a number of major motion pictures. Both polystyrene and polyurethane are versatile materials that can be cut and shaped by hand tools as required.
AU&S supplies a range of styrene densities, from cost effective low density styrene to load bearing high density styrene that provides an excellent finish.
AU&S also provide a specially formulated special effects urethane that is designed to be highly fire resistant. This foam is ideal for special effects scenes that require small explosive charges to be mounted in sets as it will not ignite from the charges.
Compared to a traditional wooden set, polystyrene is much lighter and easier to move. It is therefore an ideal base for stage backdrops, as it is much lighter and safer to use.
Medium density polystyrene is the material of choice when sculpting. It provides a good finish when shaped while still remaining cost effective and easy to carve. Our cutting machines can also cut a two dimensional side profile to provide the basic shape for further sculpting.
