CG Composites to stock blue foam in Brisbane.

Hey all, I remembered for AGES trying to get blue foam on a regular basis as a modeler and CNC'er. No where in Brisbane would sell it and if I did get some it was pretty rare! (If you live in the US, don't be fooled, its impossible to get here! Lol)

I convinced my company to regularily stock blue foam in 2 different densities!
40/400Kpa and 45/700kpa (I'm hoping the 700 will be brilliant for quick unabrasive CNC prototyping and hell cheap!) In 25 / 50 and 100mm sheets.

I work at CG Composites at Hendra, and if I can get enough people interested I've convinced my boss to keep stocking it.

If your not familiar with blue foam its fantastic to make foamies/slop soarers/terrain god you name it. Sands great with a good surface finish and is really strong. Styrofoam is no comparison!

So, can I PLEASE get expressions of interest and just some emailed pre-orders, just say "Your keen" (I don't need money) I just need to know you'd be interested. I will also sell half sheets too.
Email me! I already give great deals to modelers and motorcycle racers (since I am personally involved in both) I have a little agreement with you guys...
So... who wants some?!

Hi James,

Maybe a mention in the boat forums, a number of people there use that for boat hull plugs etc

PS, I may be interested, costs?

Cheers
Nick

Hi James

I have bought products from your shop before - peel ply, tool coat, wax carbon tow, etc. If you are able to stock a foam that is equivalent of Dow hi-load 60 that would be great. I have previously only been able to source Dow SMTG which is about 25 psi from a place in Eagle Farm. I shelled out a bit of cash earlier in the year to get in Spyder foam from the States. Anyway you might want to publicize this in the composites and Australian forum pages.

kind regards

Dan

Thought I'd give this thread a little bump. Did the blue foam ever work out James?
