Help!
How come there are no Canadian Depron suppliers?

Is it a privilege to be a supplier of this stuff?
How come no one in Canada sells that product?

/rant begin.

Actually I should add that a few Hobby Shops in Canada sell Deptron but they dont deserve to be mentioned, at 18$ a sheet (19x27) this is plain simple stealing...

/rant over.

Where in Canada?

None of the eastern home hardware stores know about this stuff.
I got the "what the hell are you talking about" look each time I asked for this stuff.
I even called DOW Canada and they told me they aren't importing this product in Canada.

Let me know if yiou know of a FF source in eastern canada.

thanks.

Thanks David

I already received quotes for the first two... 30$ shipping for 15$ worth of foam.

And the third one.... in my dreams maybe

Sorry. I wish I could help you out. You could take a trip in a Moving Van to DepronUSA and fill it up with a life time supply of Depron. Ok Im being crazy here.

Well, I'd be interested in taking a *bit* of it off of your hands. I don't know what I'd do with a 2' x 4' x 8' block of it though..... 1.0# density would be nice.
