CF100 EVA craft foam
CF100 (often called Cosplay foam or EVA foam) is premier quality, for those who are looking for the best of the best.
CF100 is a high density (100kg/m³) closed-celled smooth surface foam & it is the ultimate crafting material.
It is durable, easily heat-formed (see video below), easily sanded & with its high density, details can be carved into the foam with precision & ease.
Use contact adhesive (Uhu will work if applied to both surfaces then allowed to go tacky). PVA will not work. Super glues (cyanoacrylates) work well for small pieces – adding details, for instance. A hot glue gun can be used – with care (and not advised for 2mm). The heat of the glue will affect the thermos-formable material.
Use a pyrography tool for engraving details.
