and with quality parts and
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tan, light blue, closed cell,
medium and high density
foam with higher compression
"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 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!
