KarZah, Advanced Materials offers the Foam Decorations group as one of the modern alternatives to gypsum decorations, known as (Futec). Initially, foam decoration is a white foamy chemical that we can form in whatever shape we like. This gypsum alternative is made of polyurethane with the addition of sand and glass powder. Then, the mixture is molded into a wide range of designs, then it undergoes pressure and heat. Finally, the material stays in the molds to dry and take its final shape. On the positive side, this product is environmentally friendly.
We use foam decorations as a substitute for Arabic gypsum decorations known as Moroccan gypsum. Its popularity stems from the cleanliness and ease during installation, unlike the installation of traditional gypsum.
