There are significant changes underway in the supply of Styrofoam the market leading extruded polystyrene. During 2018 Dow Chemical will cease the manufacture of blue Styrofoam and replace with a new improved product called Xenergy Styrofoam. This product will be grey in colour and offer the same mechanical properties but will provide improved thermal performance. The process of winding down stocks of blue Styrofoam is already underway with some grades already exhausted such as RTM, these will be supplied in the new improved grade of Xenergy. Other grades will be phased in over coming months. Full technical data sheets on the new improved product are available to download here and here.
Pre-cut foam letters and numbers can easily transform a school project, home craft activity or could even decorate your wedding venue!
Have you ever wanted to personalise an event or a project with pre-cut letters? Now you can with our pre-cut Craftfoam letters and numbers, which are available in Helvetica font and can be used to create eye-catching messages that will enhance any location.
Craftfoam letters are proving particularly popular in school art lessons where pupils can create colourful memorable artwork for their classrooms. Because the letters are already cut to shape, pupils can concentrate on getting creative with colour and texture, which is much more fun – rather than spending time on the difficult job of cutting them out!
For a colourful finish, we recommend using acrylic paints, although some spray paints will also work well. If you want to go one step further by adding special effects to your letters, you could consider using plaster, gesso, modelling paste or other coating materials to create interesting textures.
There really is no limit to the uses for Craftfoam Letters – whether for an architectural project, event, corporate occasion or to personalise a wedding venue – let us bring your event to life with letters and numbers!
