The Apex Urethane Millwork product is made from precision molded, high-density rigid polyurethane.

No. Apex Urethane Millwork is made from high-density polyurethane foam that is extremely rigid, unlike polystyrene which has a soft nature. Apex Urethane Millwork has the look and feel of wood.

Apex Urethane Millwork products are created by mixing isocyanate and resin together. The mixture is then injected into one of our custom handcrafted molds. Once the polyurethane has been injected into the mold, a chemical reaction occurs, causing the foam to rise and take the shape of the pattern inside of the mold. The mold is then placed under pressure until the polyurethane has taken shape and hardened, inside the mold. When the polyurethane has fully formed and hardened it can be removed from the mold, finished, and painted.

Apex Urethane Millwork products will not melt under normal weather and installation conditions.

There are no special skills required to install the Apex Urethane Millwork products. If you can install a wood product, then you can install the Apex Urethane Millwork quite easily. You can cut, screw, and sand the Apex Urethane Millwork just like a wood product.

Apex Urethane Millwork recommends that you use stainless steel or non corrosive fasteners along with the PL Premium adhesive. Basic tools that may be needed during installation are: Mitre saw, mitre box, screw driver, level, putty knife, and paint brush.

Apex recommends that you always use stainless steel or non-corrosive fasteners along with the PL Premium adhesive. Due to the sensitivity of decorative mouldings, Apex Urethane Millwork recommends over-cutting mouldings by ¼” per 10 foot length and spring fitting the moulding as tightly as possible.

Apex Urethane Millwork recommends that exterior applications be installed at temperatures no lower than 50°F. For interior or exterior installation, Apex Urethane Millwork recommends that the product be acclimated to the installation temperature for a minimum of 24 hours before installation.

Apex Urethane Millwork products come with a 10-year warranted, custom-formulated, water- based paint coating that is V.O.C. compliant “MacroNano” Technology, resisting harsh environmental conditions such as direct sunlight, acid rain and extreme temperature variations. No further painting is required unless you wish to change the white finished product shipped to you.

Since all “polyurethane” products are subject to thermal expansion and contraction, it is recommended that consideration to “lighter” paints be selected in your choice of colors, as darker colors absorb more radiation than lighter colors. Flat, Eggshell and Satin Finishes are recommended due to their slight porous nature during the curing process.

The mouldings come in various sizes ranging from 8’ to 20’ lengths. The last two numbers of the item number tell you the length of the moulding in feet. Example 01-102-16 is a 16’ length.
