  • Source for trimming foam in New Zealand?

    Hey, all!

    Hoping that our Ozzie/NZ friends can help us out. I was reached out to by a customer in New Zealand looking for the name of the foam sheet we use here in North America. It seems he can't find it anywhere where he is.

    Can anyone let me know if there is a local source for an equivalent to the Dow Corning Styrofoam sheet product and where he might get it?

    In Australia its this stuff - This stuff is lightweight board of extruded polystyrene with talc which makes it quite easy to cut. Its around USD9.00 for an enormous sheet 30mm thick.

        I was unable to source 5 years ago in New Zealand! Hopefully you'll have better luck now? I had to have a 4' x 8' sheet cut up at Home Depot in Florida and hand carried it back to new Zealand!

          Customer said he found it at the local store, so it must be there now!
