What kind of foam is this?

Has any one used this stuff before? Can the paper be taken off without to much trouble?

Wonder what the shipping is on a box of 25, 48x96 foam boards?

I did a search on here but found nothing.

Well, I suspect it's just styrene based foam with expensive acid free paper for the matting folk. it's more than twice as expensive as Dollar tree foam (readiboard) in the 3/16x20x30 size using the "sale" price. I don't think I'd bother with it. Look for a dollar store that sells the Readiboard 3/15" paper off) in the office or craft section for the cheap way to go for small amounts, or you can get a box of 16 sheets of 24"x48" Model Plane Foam for $65 delivered.

What springer said. This appears to be higher end stuff. Shipping at Dollar Tree is included in the $1 price. Of course, there's always MPF as an alternative.

That also looks to have a posterboard covering. If you have never tried to remove posterboard from foam before, its a nightmare and a mess.

Readi-Board from dollar tree really is the simplest solution for most. MPF is good for if you want larger panels without the waves that Ready-Board has. Both you can glue peices together to make larger pieces.

MPF has been the best I've used so far, including styrofoam, fan fold foam, dollar tree foam, and depron.

I was curious because of the sizes. I have plenty of the dollar store foam sitting here. I soak it with water, let dry and peel the paper off with ease.

I dont even wet the Readi-Board anymore. The papers bond is so weak now it comes right off.

its made by Adams PLastics, the same company that also made Ready-board and some of the FFF. its basickly FFF but white and without any backing and 6mm thick. It also got a uniform surface, unlike Readi-board with its wavyness.
