Foam supplier saying hello

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself. We are one of the largest distributors of EPS Foam (and other foams as well) in the country. If I can help you out with any projects, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thanks very much,

Hi David;

Since you're here, could you explain the differences between beadboard, EPS, and Styrofoam? The beadboard, as I understand it, is made by heating a lot of individual plastic pellets, but it doesn't consolidate them much, and the pellets tend to retain their distinct form, making the material a bit crumbly for sculpting. There's also a styrene-based material that has a different structure, being more of an open-cell foam that, while still easy to erode, is more homogeneous, and forms finer dust, since whole beads aren't being dislodged. Am I correct in calling that EPS, or is there another name for it? I've seen it in thin sheets used for building insulation; does it come in thicker pieces as well?

Thanks;

David,
does your company deal exclusively in EPS? You mentioned other foams, but I didn't see any other types listed on the website. Do you deal in polyurethane foams? If so, what densities and sizes do you carry?
