Second grade: this Styrofoam will have a few larger knocks and dents compared to our first grade.
Density: 30kg m³
See below for our 1st quality white Styrofoam (zero stock available will result in that link not being seen). Also for smaller sheets (these tend to have smoother surfaces than our 2nd grade).
Lightweight and easy to handle.
Consistent texture through and through, without gaps and holes.
Easier to cut, shape, glue, paint and cover than any expanded polystyrene.
Finely textured surface provides a smoother finish for model making projects, whether painted or covered. Great for creating landscapes or for pieces that require a lot of carving and shaping, that don’t require smooth flat surfaces.
An information sheet is available for this product.
The best tool type to use to cut this material is a hot wire cutter (see below). Draw or push the Styrofoam slowly so as not to damage the heated wire (expanded polystyrene offers much less resistance).
Ensure any paints and adhesives do not contain any solvent, as this will melt the material. That can be used for artistic effect as can be seen on this sheet (using grey Styrofoam).
