Title: STYROFOAM IN KERALA
Post by: AL HAM SHARI on October 24, 2017, 11:29:10 PM
Hello guys, after a lot of store hunting, I found a place where we can get High quality EPP foam at different sizes in Kerala. It is not a reseller, it's a styrofoam factory. We can get a 50mm sheet at just 150/- per sheet. The factory is situated in Paravoor,Alappuzha,Kerala. You can contact me if you want it.(Can't ship due to risk of damaging).

EPP or Thermocol?
Rs 150 per sheet of 50mm thickness. But what's the size?
Any data on density?
Regards

ITS EPP foam , looks like refrigerator thermocol but has more density and also 3 times stronger.  I don't have the like correct density data but here is the pic. The foam is available at 43 sheets

If it looks like refrigerator foam then it's EPS or High-density thermocol sheets. If you can upload a pic it would be better.

With Regards,
Nitesh.

All you have to do is bend a piece.
If it bends, it's EPP,
If it breaks, it's EPS (expanded polystyrene/thermocol)

Larger the plane gets, thicker the body should be.

@knvshrm,
Why do you want styrofoam in Kerala?
Thought you were in Delhi...

Posting on the right board and in the right thread (or starting a new thread when needed) makes your message more meaningful...

I want to add to that another supplier of EPS foam in Kochi, Sharon Insul India, Seaport - Airport Rd, Thrikkakara, Ernakulam. It costs about Rs400 for a 100mm thick foam of size 1m x0.5m.

Also @AL HAM SHARI thanks for sharing, please also share the contact details of the shop in Alapuzha, I'm trying to get these foam shipped to Trivandrum, It would be nice if I can find a place near to Trivandrum for it.
