Re: What epoxy, what foam

Mike Steinsland

For what its worth.....
I once bought some foam from Composites Canada that is cut into small sguares that allow it to be shaped into compound curves 
The squares are held in line with fibers

Probably can be bought elsewhere

There is no tape of it, but his slide presentation is very detailed yet clearly understood and is available to download from his website. Here’s the link: 

I suggest you browse the other documents on his site as they all have valuable information.

Hes the one that did a presentation at the quickie meet not long ago? Did anyone tape it?

I suggest you get in direct contact with Mike Bergen about this. This is more complicated than can be addressed over social media. Mike is a composites expert and is giving seminars on current best practices. He's at Oshkosh this week, so you may have to wait a week or so.

I am using mostly West System epoxy from WestMarine, and foam from ÀC Spruce, except for structural stuff, I have a little bit of special epoxy, not sure if the brand.

Also got my flox and micro from ACS, can send you links if needed.

Do you have BID?

Love building planes almost as much as flying. Latest completed build is "Loki", a Chinook Plus 2 bush plane.
