When it comes to awards, glass, acrylic, wood, metal – and many other substrates – are very familiar to you and your clients.
But have you ever heard of Foxite? Unless you’ve been on our website or following our blogs, you likely haven’t.
What is Foxite?
Foxite is a specially-formulated, high-density polyurethane resin compound that is cast by hand in highly-detailed rubber molds created at Bruce Fox. That’s certainly a mouthful, so “Foxite” is a whole lot easier!
Foxite is a Bruce Fox exclusive. It is a cast urethane that can be molded in nearly limitless shapes with a high fidelity of detail. It is extremely durable and can be machined and finished in a variety of treatments.

Case Study: Jim Buescher’s Memorial Golf Award
A multi-tiered suite of trophies for a memorial golf event.
After meetings and conversations, the various parties agreed upon a design (pictured above). It was symbolic and meaningful for the award.
Once approved, the piece went through our process, which began with Jered sculpting the piece by hand to create a mold.
Since the sculpt was complex, it had to be molded in Foxite. It’s the best material to pick up the intricate detail. After molding the various pieces, the awards were prepped for gold plating.
Bruce Fox, Inc. is also a traditional metal-plating operation, where components of all types are given decorative plated finishes in bright and satin coppers, brasses, nickels, silvers and karat golds. In this case, the memorial award was gold plated.
After creation, the awards were assembled and shipped out.
The event and awards were a success!
