Polystyrene Foam

Polystyrene Foam

(7)
Blue large cell expanded 1.6 lb. density, with flame retardant additive. Cuts easily with hot wire for airfoil shapes. Can be dissolved with fuels, solvents, and thinners. Originally used on VE & LE designs. Do not use with polyester resin - use only epoxy. Can be glued with any type of adhesive.
Variable Transformer

Variable Transformer


This manually operated variable output regulator is perfect for controlling hot wire temperatures. Output varies from 1 to 130 volts. Input is 117 volts, 5 amps. Current rating applies over whole range of output voltage.
Polyurethane Foam

Polyurethane Foam

(10)
2 lb. density. Small cell tan or green, depending on stock. Not to be hot wired as it emits hazardous gas. Always use a mask to avoid breathing dust and do not burn the leftover scraps. Contours easily when cut with a large knife, then sanded with other bits of foam to the final design. Useful in making the fuselage, wing tips or wheel fairings, and small streamlined parts with lots of curves. Inside curves can be made with a wire brush, then final finished with curved scrap blocks. Polyurethane foam is fuel resistant; therefore, it can be used for fuel cells. Can be glued with any type of adhesive.
Last-a-Foam

Last-a-Foam

(19)
Rigid, Polyether Polyurethane foam with fine closed cell structure, light creamy yellow color. Last-a-foam is wonderfully versatile for sandwich core applications. It cuts and shapes easily with common woodworking tools, and bonds to itself and other materials with most epoxy, polyester, or urethane-type adhesives. Last-a-foam is unaffected by water, fuels and most solvents, and paint finishes are easily applied. It is frequently used in regular molds after the gel-coat and first two layers of glass are installed; the Last-a-foam is added and another layer of glass applied for a strong lightweight sandwich.
Styrofoam

Styrofoam

(7)
Dow 2#/cu. ft. Blue (as used in Mohawk, Goldwing, Sky Pup & Solitaire) Extruded blue styrofoam as used in the building industry for insulation boards. Can be hot wired . Will dissolve with fuel, solvents or thinners. Use only epoxy for gluing.
Divinycell Foam

Divinycell Foam

(10)
Tan, light blue, closed cell, medium and high density foam with higher compression strength. Standard "aircraft quality" foam that meets FAA regulations for fire resistance, as well as the industry's engineering needs. Can be sawed, cut or filed shaped in one-direction, and bends with a heat gun. At 200 degree F, the material can be vacuum formed in a mold to compound shapes. Rigid polyvinyl, it can be used with polyester resins. These sizes ship UPS oversize rate.
Instafoam INSTFM-3

Instafoam

(3)
Instafoam is back! Consists of equal parts of resin and catalyst. When the two components are mixed in equal volume, they expand into a rigid closed cell foam of 2.1 lb nominal density; expanding approximately 30 to 1 depending on temperature. Thorough mixing of the two components is essential. Small-batch mixes are recommended. Cured foams can be easily trimmed, cut and shaped with common woodworking tools. 3 Gallon kit contains 3 1/2’s of A & B, ½ Gallon kit contains 1 qt each of A & B, 1 Gallon kit contains 2 ½ gallons each of A & B. Not for use on aircratf. Use toluene or MEK for cleanup. Meets MIL-P-21929B Cls I. ORM-D Ship Ground Only!
