STYROFOAM and GASOLINE
as an ALTERNATIVE
ROOF SEALANT

RATIONALE
REVIEW OF THE RELATED LITERATURE
METHODOLOGY
Problems
Can Styrofoam and Gasoline combined become a sealant?
What is the best consistency for Styrofoam and gasoline
for roof sealant?

Philippines as a tropical country, rusting on roofs causing
easy breakage, a more economical way of making a roof
sealant by recycling used Styrofoam and an urge to know
if this alterative sealant can be effective on roofs.



Objective
The purpose of this study is to
introduce an innovative Styrofoam
and gasoline as an alternative
sealant.

Significance of the Study:
School- they can have knowledge for future projects and may use it in times of their roof’s problem.
Future Researchers- they can use this as their basis in making their thesis.
Citizens- they can use them because it’s easy to do and can save money instead of buying commercial sealant.
Buyers- They spend less money and can just do the alternative sealant on their home.

Styrofoam
is a trademarked brand of closed-cell
extruded polystyrene foam currently
made for thermal insulation and craft
applications.

Gasoline
/ˈɡg æsoli n/, or petrol /ˈpɛtrəl/,
is a transparent, petroleum-
derived liquid that is used primarily
as a fuel in internal
combustion engines.

Sealants
are typically lower strength,
yet flexible, bonding agents used
between substrates of differing
physical properties to form
a seal between the materials

Scope and Limitations
This study is only limited in the Styrofoam
because Styrofoam can be melted by the
gasoline. You cannot just use any plastic
material instead of Styrofoam because
they cannot be melted by the gasoline
so you just use Styrofoam.


Procedures

Prepare and gather the materials needed.
Place the Styrofoam on a clean container.
Cut it into smaller pieces. Next, pour the
gasoline, which is placed on the second
container, into the first container with the Styrofoam on it. Mix the mixture and wait
until it turns viscous.

Results and Discussion
During the experiment, I put the Gasoline on the Styrofoam.
And then I stir it and after a few minutes it melted. I apply
the melted styrofoam on the hole with different diameters and then I observe its durability after one hour, three hours and
then three days. After one hour, the sealant is not durable, it is
still sticky. After three hours, only the holes that have size and
are durable but the one size is not. After three days, all the
holes are durable and we found out that smaller holes
take short time to make it sealant durable.
