Craftfoam, the robust extruded polystyrene material known for its strength and versatility manufactured by Sheffield-based Panel Systems, is now available in white, extending choice even further for customers. White Craftfoam benefits from the same versatile properties as other colours in the range, including grey and green. The material is lightweight but strong and can easily be cut, shaped, sanded and modelled using a variety of different hand tools and without the need for any specialist equipment.
The uniform closed cell structure of Craftfoam also guarantees the best finish, as its smooth surface can be painted and is suitable for use with non-solvent based adhesives such as PVA. The material is also suitable for use with hand or powered knives and saws, drills and routers. This makes it ideal for use in modelling and therefore popular with sculptors, crafters and artists.
A spokesperson from Panel Systems said: "This new white Craftfoam offers a completely blank canvas for any modeller, sculptor or crafter to work with and is ideal for use in most projects including wargaming, cosplay and even architectural modelling. The material can be easily cut, shaped, painted and moulded for use in anything from decorations and cake stands to small-scale models. It really is one of the most versatile crafting materials available."
New white Craftfoam is available to buy online, alongside grey and green, in handy sheet sizes and a range of thicknesses including 600 x 600 x 10mm, 600 x 600 x 25mm and 600 x 600 x 50mm. The material is also available in bespoke sizes for larger quantities and can be delivered anywhere in the UK.
