FOAM
GATORFOAM®

GB20, GB50

Gatorfoam is one of the toughest, most durable laminated foam panels on the market. Gatorfoam panels are made from a durable core of rigid polystyrene foam bonded on both sides by resin impregnated wood fiber veneers. The result is a laminated foam panel with an exceptionally hard, smooth surface that resists dents, punctures and moisture. Combined with Pres-On's acid-free, self-stick adhesive, Gatorfoam is the board of choice for mounting photos and murals because of its smooth surface and warp resistance. Its strength is also well-suited for sign makers and display / exhibit designers.
