Balsa-Foam® is a rigid rigid foam specially developed for 3D design, sculpture and modeling.

It has a very good chemical resistance and can be glued with different types of glue, from wood glue to special instant glue (cyanoacrylate glue).
The ferry-foam® can be dyed with any type of paint or water-based or solvent-based coating.
A primer coating with spray paint helps to seal the foam. Solvent-based paint has the property of retaining the surface structure, while water-based acrylic paint only fills this structure. Since the Ferris-Foam® does not return, it preserves all detailed printing. This means that by simply pressing a random object on the surface, very detailed shapes can be created. , 10pcf and 20pcf (5 and 10 pcf are also known as, respectively.) * Pcf means Pound per cubic foot (lb / ft3), which is equal to 16 kg / m3.
Working with Raft-Foam®

Chisels and gouges slip, as if by 5pcf Balsa-Foam® and also cut with relative ease by the stronger, harder 10pcf Balsa-Foam® and 20pcf.
Beyond this hardness (density), the three types of Balsa-Foam® have similar properties. In addition, the same cutting techniques can be used for all types. With Balsa-Foam® 20pcf, only more resistance can be tried with cutting and gouging tools.
Techniques such as drilling or pressing (stamping) the material is not practical with Balsa-Foam® 20pcf. This hardness (density), for example, is ideal for making prototypes using CNC machining.
The ferry-foam® can not be cut with a 'fuse' because the ferry-foam ® can withstand high temperatures (148 ° C). Also, a 'fuse wire' is not required. In contrast to polystyrene foam (polystyrene) where fuse wire is designed for, balsa-Foam® can simply and easily be carved with a knife or saw. It is recommended that, after direct contact with Balsa-Foam®, all metal tools used are easy to clean and lubricate with light oil. This is to prevent corrosion.
