FFF's brother?

Ok after searching high and low in Australia for FFF or its equivalent (i can get depron from online but adds up $$$) i have finally found these people http://www.dctech.com.au/brands/styrofoam.php, from what i cant tell its the same stuff. Im going to give them a call or go to there place cause its 2 minutes away (after all that looking) and check it out. Iv looked and cant find the thread with all the specs for FFF so if someone could link me please, just so i can compare the two.

Hi Metal,

You're close to the money - the manufacturer is DOW however you're after something roughly 6mm thick... by all means drop in and see if they have a 6mm DOW foam there (and let us at the regional forum know - http://www.rcgroups.com/australia-307/ ). I've seen a fair bit of DOW styrofoam on building sites (I'm in the building industry) but haven't had anything skinner than roughly 50mm.

Never-the-less, make yourself a hot wire setup and you're set.

Looks like they also have the floor underlayment... May be worthwhile, depending on how stiff it is.

I'd meant to hotwire a foam wing - you'd get a better finish with depron for FFF foamies.

Anyhow - if you get the bluecor stuff for under carpets, great! Let us know.
