It's not clear what you are trying to say. You don't need to be an expert to see whether the materials you have mentioned are of good quality or not. You can just hold a coro or depron sheet in your hands and tell for yourself if it's good enough.

Foam(Thermacole) doesnt have any quality or brand stuffs,
Normal price of HD foam comes from 45rs to 70rs in retail depending upon the distance from the manufacturer and the retailer.
Never mind about brand names(If they have any) as making process of foam is same and unmodified for years.

the size is just as a normal stationary thermacole except its 1"thick and used for false ceiling stuffs.

the nearer the manufacturer lesser the price as transportation adds more money to it.
