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.
Greetings and welcome to our website. It's summertime and here in VT we head outside. For those in the warmer climates they head to their model rooms where it's cooler! Wherever you go, take that modeling project along. Gatorfoam is light and packs well for that vacation trip.
I modeled outside on vacation in NC with the higher humidity and some rain and the GF was unaffected. Try some of the new offerings that the kit makers have available. There are some beautiful models that are just begging for a Gatorfoam base. Links are provided to they're sites. If you aren't already using they're products give them a try. Remember we're here to provide you with some of the best "Gator-Aid" around. Stay tuned and Thanks! Dave
This is the kit I built on my vacation this week. The Colchester reef lighthouse for on my MANE RR layout. It's a BEST kit...thanks Brian & Jill! Their company info is on the manufacturers page. It will be mounted on my Gatorfoam Lake Champlain when we get back to VT. Dave
Gatorfoam does contain some Formaldehide. Please use caution when cutting and handling. MSDS sheets are available on request.
