Styro Spray, Liquid Sheeting

There are several epoxy like products on the market for creating a hard surface directly on foam. Two of them are
Styro Spray - http://www.industrialpolymers.com/styrospray.html
Liquid Sheeting - http://www.wowplanes.com/product_inf...roducts_id=130
A bit pricey but look like they produce a really great surface when applied correctly. LS appears to impose a small weight penalty. it's not clear how much weight SS adds.

Has anyone used either of these? Are they the same thing? Any thoughts pro or con?

TVCasualty has been using stryro spray on his projects. here's a thread where he talks about it - http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1142716 Look at post 105 and beyond. It looks like it would be great for creating vacuforming plugs directly on foam. It clearly has a learning curve, though. His use for plugs looks very interesting. The corsair cowl came out looking pretty darn good.

edit: thanks chuck!
