 ArchPolymerTM & Building Codes

 As there are numerous dominant Building Codes in existence and practice throughout

 the world, in addition to the many State-level and Provincial codes, Imperial strongly

 urges specifiers and users to refer to their local codes as to the uses of polyurethane foam

 millwork and building components. 

 

 As with any polyurethane foam product, they are not designed or sold to provide structural support

 unless otherwise stated (balustrade systems for example have embedded structure supports)

  Structural support mechanisms as allowed by your local Building Code can be enhanced, but not

  replaced with polyurethane products. 

  Refer to your local building codes before buying product

 

 

 

  Architect Specifications

  General Description:

 Arch PolymerTM is a high density lite weight synthetic product with the same density as white pine.

 It will not split, crack or rot.  All products come white primed and are ready to paint or faux finish.

 It is suitable for interior and exterior applications.  It is water and insect resistant.

 

 Customization:  All products can be customized to size and design  

 It is necessary to use the approved adhesive for warranty claims.

      will be allowed only with the express written consent of the Owner or Architect.

 

 Part Four - Product Materials
 A. All interior and exterior polyurethane products as distributed

      by Imperial Productions & Distribution Inc. will have an integral barrier coat and

      a top coat primer for a double-primed finish  which provides UV degradation

      resistance  - Final painting by others or factory specified.

 

 B. Any polyurethane products as distributed by Imperial are water-resistant.

 

 C. Any polyurethane products as distributed by Imperial are odor-free and release

      no gases.

 

 D. Imperial distributed products are vermin resistant and resistant to mold and mildew.

 C:  Final painting by others is required to protect against UV degradation

       Dark colors will increase UV degradation causing it to expand and contract a

       higher rates. It is recommended to use light colors.

 

 D:  Do not use any solvent based finishing materials or glues near ArchPolymerTM

 

 

 Material Specifications

 The manufacturer warrants the following: 

 

 Physical Properties
 A. Density: The manufacturer's products are made with high density polyurethane

      foam with an overall density similar to White Pine

      Target in place density: 14 pcf

      Molded Cord Density: 14 pcf. (ASTM-D1622)

      Compression Strength:  310 psi (ASTM-D1621)  

      Flexural Strength:  700 psi  (ASTM-D790)

      Shore D Hardness: 37 (ASTM D2240)

 

      The manufacturing process provides a greater skin density than core density

      which increases durability.

 

 B. Surface Properties and Finishes:

      All products are produced incorporating a white or wood color barrier coating.

      In addition to this integral barrier coat, all products receive a primer coat with

       built-in UV inhibitors.

      The combination of the integral shell-like skin, the barrier coat and the primer

       top coat provides an excellent substrate for durable finishes.

 

 C. Ultra Violet: Ultra Violet rays do not effect properly coated products.

 

 D. Compressive Strength: Falls within the 300 - 400 P.S.I. range.

 

 E. Tensile Strength: Falls within the 300 - 400 P.S.I. range.

 

 F. Flexural Strength:

    The degree of flexibility in any given polyurethane product is determined by the shape

    and size of its cross-section. Due to the inherent flex characteristics of lineal footage

    products, they will follow some curvature and uneven surfaces.

 

 G. Moisture Resistance:

  The polyurethane has a closed-cell structure which provides protection from most

  solvents and renders it almost completely moisture resistant.

 

 H. Mildew Resistance:

     All polyurethane products are mold and mildew resistant and cannot be harmed by

     termites or other insects/rodents.

 

 I. Flammability & Optional Class 1 Fire Rating

    All polyurethane products are combustible when exposed to open flame, as are all

    wood materials unless they have fire retardants in the mix

 

  Optional Specified Fire Rating:  ASTM-E84  Class 1

  UL Class A (class 1) Flame Spread Index 20,  Smoke Spread Index 350 to 400

 

 

 J. Shrinkage:

    All polyurethane materials will expand and contract nominally depending on

    environmental factors such as temperature and humidity.

    Following the manufacturer's installation instructions and recommended

   Adhesive are provided to best address shrinkage and must be used in order not to

   void warranty.  Butt join ends and use the approved adhesive

 

 K. Applied finishing materials by others. 

     Do not use solvent based adhesives or paints due to the chemical reaction between

     ArchPolymerTM and the solvents that will dissolve the material.

   

 

 

 

 

  Warranty

 The manufacturer warrants to the original purchaser, it's rigid polyurethane material

 will be free from defects in material and workmanship for as long as the original

 purchaser resides in the home that the product was installed when the polyurethane is

 installed, finish painted and used under recommended conditions and instructions.

 

 To the original purchaser, for a period of one year from the date of purchase, it's white

 exterior primer paint applied to the polyurethane will be free from blistering and pealing

 when used installed and finished painted under recommended conditions and instructions. 

 The original purchaser and their installers must inspect every piece prior to installation. 

 Both parties must waive all defects which could  have been discovered by reasonable

 inspection prior to installation. 

 

 

 Warranty will automatically be void if a non-approved adhesive or solvent based paints

 or stains are used. 

 

 Failure to follow the manufacturer's storage and handling instruction will void this

 limited warranty.  In the event that the claim is made under this warranty and conditions

 had been met, the original purchaser must notify the manufacturer within writing within

 30 days of making the discovery.

   

 Manufacturer reserves the right to inspect the defective product on site, or request

 that the original purchase at their expense return the defective product to the

 manufacturer for inspection.  The manufacturer will determine if the product failed,

 and whether or not it will repair, replace, or refund said defective parts. 

 

 The manufacturer shall have no liability to any person, firm, or corporation

 whatsoever for incidental or consequential damage such as, but not limited to,

 labor, finishing, parts damaged in transit, freight charges, installation, lost profits,

 lost sales, acts of nature, civil unrest, or acts of terrorism.  No purchaser may take

 any deduction or credit against any amount owed to the distributor Imperial Productions

 & Distribution Inc., or make any chargeback with regards to a warranty claim,

 without the expressed written consent of the distributor.

 

 This limited warranty is exclusive, and made in lieu of all other express warranties,

 whether written, oral, or implied (including any warranty or merchant ability or fitness

 of purpose, and extends only to the original purchaser's purchase. 

 

 All sales are conducted and executed in Toronto Ontario Canada.  Some states and

 provinces may not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the

 exclusion and limitations of incidental or consequential damages, so the above

 limitations or exclusions do apply to you as all sales are conducted in
