   ArchPolymerTM Product Specifications  Jan-2016



  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 primed and ready to paint or faux finish. It is suitable for interior and exterior

 applications.  It is water and insect resistant. There are no specified lengths as all products are made from molds. 

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


 Architects Specifications


 Part One - General
 A. Description - Internal and/or external architectural details and millwork shall be high-density polyurethane as distributed by

       Imperial Productions and Distribution Inc. 


 Part Two - Submittals
 A. Product Data: Submit manufacturer's descriptive literature, specifications, installation instructions and limited warranties.

 B. Warranty: Manufacturer's Limited One Year Warranty is to be submitted.

 C. Product Material Specifications: Obtain from the manufacturer for submission to the relevant building code authority.


 Part Three - Substitutions
 A. Substitutions from Imperial's specified architectural details and building components 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.

 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.

 E. Imperial's distributed products provide a greater insulating value (R value) than comparable wood product.


 Part Five - Delivery, Storage and Installation
 A. Deliver, store and install according to instructions as provided by Imperial Productions & Distribution Inc.

 B. Installation instructions as provided by Imperial Productions & Distribution Inc. are to be followed completely.

      Use only recommended Adhesive available from Imperial for installation in addition to mechanical fasteners.



 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 at between 14 and 24 lb. per cubic foot. 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.  To correct for this affix the product to a straight or flat substrata.


 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



 I. Flammability: All polyurethane products are combustible when exposed to open flame, as are all wood materials.

    The manufacturer does offer a Fire Resistant option with a flame spread index of 30 and a smoke index of 200 - 300.


 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.


 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.


 L. 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 Toronto Canada and subject to Ontario Law.    


  Fire Resistance Option

  Arch PolymerTM does NOT meet ASTM-E84 standards

  Available for most interior products. The Fire Resistant option ensures a "UL", Class 2 (B) rating.

  The capability of the "UL" rated products limits flame spread in the ASTM E-84 tunnel test to only 30 and reduces smoke

  development to 200-300. These test results are below acceptable levels for most fire coded requirements. Check with local

  Building Codes before  proceeding. Extra charges apply.  Fire Coating Full Page


 Building Codes

 As there are numerous dominant Building Codes in existence and practice throughout North America, 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). 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
