Ask about 2-part polyurethane pour foams
TC-series are nice, fast
Also: specify foam density (mass / unit volume)
Also: specify flexible or hard foams

The foams cure very fast
They do get warm --- can be hot
BJB knows methods and can help

Latex troublesome for your app

Best person to ask for there is Jill

Tell her Chuck at Duke sent you
