Rohacell 31/51 for sale CHEAP, wing skins, tail cores
For sale are sheets of Rohacell 31 and 51 cut to useful sizes for DLG wings and tails as well as other high performance molded airplanes.
Rohacell is the strongest foam per pound commercially available. It is used in nearly every molded competition wing, and for good reason. Until now it has been very difficult to get (the only US source charges a 300% mark-up...). But enough pitch, we all know this stuff is frickin' sweet
Here are the prices for the sizes currently available
Rohacell 51 @ 833 X 350 X 1 mm 15.00 USD
Rohacell 51 @ 833 X 200 X 1 mm 7.00 USD
Rohacell 51 @ 833 X 350 X 1.5 mm 16.00 USD
Rohacell 51 @ 833 X 200 X 1.5 mm 7.50 USD
Rohacell 31 @ 833 X 350 X 1 mm 12.50 USD
Rohacell 31 @ 833 X 200 X 1 mm 6.00 USD
Rohacell 31 @ 833 X 350 X 8 mm 35.00 USD
Rohacell 31 @ 833 X 200 X 8 mm 18.00 USD
The large sheets were sized such that the top and bottom skin for a 60" dlg could be nested into one sheet with little wasted material. So for a 60" dlg wing two large sheets will be required.
The sheets are cut with CNC bandsaw which holds impressive tolerances. Still, cutting 1mm thick sheets with a band-saw is tricky. The 1mm Rohacell 31 sheets are all very close to 1mm (+/- roughly .1mm). The 1mm Rohacell 51 generally lies above 1mm, ranging from ~1mm to 1.27mm.
Two shipping options are available:
Shipping option A: Foam will be packed flat between sheets of Luan plywood and 3/4" EPS foam. $19 flat for shipping option A
Shipping option B: Foam will be rolled into a 6" x 6" by 14" box. The foam will exhibit a slight curl when unpacked. $10 flat for shipping option B.
