Where can I buy Depron in Melbourne, Australia?

Guys,

Anyone know of any one that sells Depron, Bluecore or Fanfold foam in Melbourne?

I have found a supplier in Sydney and another in Perth, but postage is almost as much as the foam.

Anyone??


Paul.

Thanks guys,

I will try them all.

Paul.

PS,

What is FFF Carpet Underlay, Is this Fan Fold Foam The plans I have actually specify 6mm Fan Fold Foam, with Depron as a 2nd choice, so would be even better than Depron (if's that's what FFF Carpet Underlay actually is)!

Thanks Gazza,

One question, Why would anyone in Australia bother with expensive Depron sheets if blue FFF & EVA foam is available from the local Clark Rubber or carpet store?

Cheers,

Paul.

not many people know clark rubber sells EVA foam which is the same stuff as FFF so i have been told it sells for just as much as depron but its more easy to buy! if i want depron sheets i have to drive 45mins each way it cost me mroe in petrol even tho a sheet of depron is only round the $12-$15 mark

G'day Gazza,

I have a Clark Rubber store right here where I live. Will go take a peek.

Is there much, if any difference between the stuff they sell and the carpet underlay? ie; FFF or EVA?

Cheers,

Paul.

If you came along to an AEFA meeting (Australian Electric Flight Assoc) held in the forth Thursday of each month 8.00 pm at the Uniting Church Hall, Essex St. Mount Waverley (Starts again in February) you'd find Dr. Bob Allen selling sheets of 3mm and 6mm Depron. I believe he also sells at the indoor flight evenings which take place 2nd Saturday of each month at Donvale Sports Stadium cnr. Donvale/Springvale Rds from 7.30-11.30pm.
