kageyfna Help!!!!

Hey guys i just stumbled on this board while searching for a foam called linear(?) Anyone ever head of it? know where to get it?
It's closed cell and has three layers A blue layer between 2 black/grey layers. Is flat about 3/4 inch thick. If anyone know where to get this foam and could tell me i'd really appreciate it.

Im in a medieval combat group that makes foam weapon out of this stuff and PCV pipe but we used to dumpster dive for it and now it's not there anymore.

Halloweenking Hey Mar, I've checked there way back when this thread started and they are the same as all other places, either they didn't have it or to exspensive.

you can buy this stuff in bulk for real cheap ($.70per yrd) in any density, but you have to buy a truckload. What we are looking for is a cheap roll (50yrd or less), but no one sells it in rolls without costing and arm and a leg.

mar10 Take a look at this site.

68stang_99 Anytime Holloweenking. If you do find it, please let me know too. I don't think you could ever get enough of that stuff. Thanks!

Halloweenking 68 stang, thats what we were looking for, but we were looking for a bargain basement type 25' roll for $30 type thing. I'm cheap, I can't afford that, hehe. Thanks for the thought though

68stang_99 Hey Ya'll! I found a website that has just what you are looking for. It is They sell foams kits that are adhesive and sandable to get just the design you are looking for. If you have any problems with the website let me know.

Halloweenking It would be fine, make sure if your going to use it outdoors it is for outdoor use so you don't make the mistake of waking up in the morning after a good rain and finding your car pregnant with 50lbs of water. you can use closed cell foam for about any use, you just have to shape it right if your going to get creative.

sedan_dad I went to an apolstry shop and found 1/4 closed cell foam(used in vinyl top padding )for 5 bucks a yard.How would this work as a simple padding on a flat surface.I would later cover with vinyl.

Halloweenking Could be, not sure, the 68 fastback interior I buillt didn't have rubber foam in the kit, but it could have changed since then. Never tried the steam thing but I don't think so. The foam your talking about I don't think is EDPM,I think your talking about a vinyl nitrile blend or just regular closed cell ejection molded foam, could be wrong but doubt it. Let me why and I can probably find out for you. Feel free to send me a message or e-mail

blown69stang Isn't this the same type of foam that is used for replacement foam kits for Mustang and other cars interiors? It is injection molded in this case but can be in sheet form. It is smooth on the surface and has great shape retention and seems like its density gets greater the more it is compressed. When you blow steam on it, it gets soft and the shape can be molded to be rounded out or stuffed in corners of pre-stitched upholstery. If this sound anything like it tell me.

Halloweenking Ooooo dinger, I'm envious stock up man stock up! The foam we are talking about is rubber foam its usually only seen in hobby shops for gas engine viabration on model planes and such, it a bit like the nurf footballs and balls perod just a more dense version. that place I found is great it has it from butter soft to cramp your fingers firm, great for creating and intire interior, and it can even be fabric coverd before you even get it. I'm not sure what your talking about but would like to hear a bit more.

I wouldn't mind a big juicy peach the size of my head either but I'll settle for the foam
05-13-2002 10:47 PM
dinger you guys have my curiousity going on this foam thing. what is it used for? i run into all types of foam padding in the packing sheds where i inspect, (usda) tear off sheets of a stiff white foam, springy, teated foam sheets, etc? am i close? if so, i'm stocking up, i can get free or next to free, they buy in such large quantities, and usually throw away the last 20-30 ft. of the roll.

Halloweenking Hey all you foam heads out there, I foud a great place to find that much saut after foam, Monmouth rubber and plastics they have everything you need for interiors, foam in all kind of densities and laminated with fabric or coverd in adhesive for easy aplication, a whoooooole multitude of stuff to buy and use and just lay with.

A bit like catknip this stuff is, I get around it and just go sane (yes sane), just want to play with it all day.
