Gatorfoam is a unique, strong, laminated panel with a core of extruded polystyrene and a face made of resin impregnated wood fiber veneer commonly known as Luxell. It is an interior, exterior panel, great for structural and all model usage. It can be cut with a variety of woodworking tools, Xacto or matt knife. It accepts all types of paints, stains and adhesives. It comes in
various thicknesses in 4 x 8 and
5 x 10 foot sheets.
When using outdoors care must be taken to protect the edges against ultraviolet light. Gatorfoam is the perfect choice for module building and all around modeling techniques.
Gatorfoam is a registered product of 3A Composites, USA.
I know, I know... I've been very lax in updating my website. We just returned from Springfiel, MA. The Amhearst Railway Society train show was a great success. We talked with many old friends and made some new ones. I want to personnally thank all the kit manufactureres, scenery makers and backdrop producers who are sending customers our way. We've added a section of kit manufacturers who recommend and use
Gatorfoam. Links are provided to their sites. Please visit and tell them the "Gator-Folks" sent you. I did a clinic at Amhearst with a room full of new faces. Remember to keep in touch and that we can still provide you with some of the best "Gator-Aid" around. Dave
Here's another shot of the Johnson Woolen Mill, located in Johnson, Vermont. I will still use it as a Project of the (Year?) soon, talking about layering Gatorfoam as a base for model building. I'm working on a FSM diorama to show here next. Stay tuned!
Gatorfoam does contain some Formaldehide. Please use caution when cutting and handling. MSDS sheets are available on request.
