    Re: any germans have a good foam supply?

    im not sure about the measurements on the foam thickness on that site. its either 2-3 mm or 2-3 cm, it doesnt state that right. either way, thats either to thin or to thick. i need something in the vacinity of 6-8 mm for making a suit, the 2 mm stuff is only for detailing :D but its a start, thx very much

    isn't it strange that we Germans have to write English? :lol


    I think I've seen some insulating panels that you install under your laminate flooring made out of some dense foam, comparable with a sleeping pad. But i have no idea how thick these panels were and if they were available in different thicknesses

    Re: any germans have a good foam supply?

    google for "Plastazote LD45", it's the same Material used in the videos from xRobots.

    This material is used for case building (music equipment, camera equipment etc.) or orthopedic shoes.

    You can order it in this webshop, for example:

    http://www.case-connection.de

    about 13€/m² for 10mm and 7€/m² for 5mm

    Re: any germans have a good foam supply?

    So i recently found this page that sells Moosgummi 1m*2m* 5mm/10mm
    and its pretty cheap too. My order just arrived and the 5mm Moosgummi is just fine, the 10mm is like 15mm and i dont know how i could use that...but I'am open for suggestions.
    The URL of the shop is https://www.raeer.com/shopexd.asp?id=16413
    I ordered it at 21:00 on the 1st of march and it arrived today, so very fast delivery.

    I'll add a picture shortly

    here you go

    Re: any germans have a good foam supply?

    I'll try the 5mm out and tell you how it turned out, it's a little soft.. that being said. How rigid has it to be?

    EDIT:Just double checked the rigidness and i have to say that the 5mm foam is a little too soft. I'll probably send it back, since the other foam also isn't useable (15mm and not 10mm)

    Re: any germans have a good foam supply?

    Jeah I have the same problem..
    I heard that "Moosgummi" should be the same but in fact it is too elastic.
    Also I tried some camping mats which should be made of EVA Foam but these mats are very expensive (2m about 25$).
    Any other ideas for a german guy ?

    I'll try Plastazote LD45 next, you can find it on ebay in the shop of case-connection.
    I don't know if LD29 would be sufficient... that would be the half price of LD45.

    Re: any germans have a good foam supply?

    i might have something on hand soon. a friend of mine told me about sound isolation to put under hardwood floors, that is made like camping mats, in 5 mm thickness. he has some at home and will bring me a sample, so i can check it out. i hope its the stuff we are all looking for

    alternatively, you can buy the foam tiles in 10mm thickness in a pack of 6 at Bauhaus. its pricey tho, iirc

    I tried some impact sound insulation mats (5mm) but unfortunately they were more like polystyrene than foam so they break very easy ...
    Actually these mats are useless

    Re: any germans have a good foam supply?

    There are several sources for "foam", but it all depends on what type you´re looking for, of course.

    "Moosgummi" or regular open cell foam can be used for padding of helmets/ armor.
    Insulation foam is often used for making cost-effektive base-struktures for helmet builds.
    There´s also high density foamboard, used for prototyping, model-building and such...pretty much like balsa-foam (PRICEY, I tell you ;))

    I could also use some of these EVA matts, but they seem to be impossible to find here in Germany...at least for a reasonable price :cry

    Anyone found a source for these yet?

    you wont be happy with that, its very porous, as it says in the description and as you can see in the pic. you want a flat surface with as little pores as possible

    added your link to the first post :)

    cheap white glue
    Soudal HOLZLEIM PRO 30 D 5 kg Kanister


    also saw some cheap insulation mats at the Toom Baumarkt today, but couldn't test them for flexibility extensively. They were made from "extrudiertem Polystyrol", they come in 7mm and 4mm...price for 4m² was around 15 euros. Possibly not worth working with..but you never know. I did bend them as much as I could in the package. At least they didnt look like they would crack very fast.

    I got a question - is there a good putty for model building which fills pinholes and grooves? I only know Plasto putyy by Revell, but it's not that easy to work with.
