Default Questions about Polygem 307 Fire Retardent putty

Anyone ever used the Polygem #307 lite Fire Retardent putty? Is it safe for animals? Does the polygem need to be sealed with anything after you are done sculpting to make it safe for animals? Is it safe to use underwater/around water,etc? If not safe for water usage what would you use? Thanks guys.

I have spoken with one of their sales reps named Dave. He is super informative and can give you some great info with each of the products and knows all of the "dos and donts". I would recommend calling them and asking for Dave

That right there demonstrates the value of this forum.

Backing up - unless you have some sort of regulatory compulsion to use the 307-FR (like, you a have a public exhibition blah blah blah), my suggestion is to just use the standard 307 or 307-Lite (my personal fave). I'm assuming you don't intend to create some ridiculous ignition hazard and need to cover your foam (which is quite fire scary!) with a true fire retardant. Normally, having the foam sandwiched between glass on one side and epoxy on the other seems adequate for household use. Hell, some people just paint their foam and call it good. I don't but...basically I'm suggesting you consider your application, and any assumptions you may have made. You might well need no FR.

good luck!
