Elasta-shield Smooth, Vinyl-Acrylic Protective Skin, Flexible Foam Coating for Architecture, Theater, Entertainment Sculpture, Arts & Crafts


Dries clear. Water-soluble, flexible shield protects EPS foam for general handling. Will act as an adhesive for applying fabrics if they are applied while Elasta-Shield is wet. Can be brushed, rolled, or sprayed. Covers 320 sq. ft. at 5 mils.


Elasta-Shield provides a flexible adhesive bond between many scenic materials, such as fabrics, plastics, foams and wood. Elasta-Shield dries to a clear, hard, yet pliable coating that does not suffer from the "tackiness" common in many other flexible glues even after those glues have had days to dry. And unlike ordinary "white" glues which can crack and break when flexed, the adhesive bond of Elasta-Shield remains extremely pliable and strong even as the materials bend and deform. Elasta-Shield is water based, and very safe to use, with little fume and low toxicity.
