Gatorfoam® is an extremely rigid lightweight composite display board which combines excellent strength-to-weight values and versatility with archival quality which allows its use for display mounting of museum artefacts and materials requiring a non-acidic environment. Our white Gatorfoam sheets are made from resin impregnated, chemically purified wood pulp boards that are bonded to both sides of a high density, smooth-cutting polystyrene core.
The smooth finish on white Gatorfoam accepts screen printing, acrylic and oil paint, and is sufficiently water-resistant to withstand exterior use. Uniform density within the Gatorfoam sheets allows cutting by hand and power tools, use of screw or wire fixings, and a variety of adhesives and laminating fabrics. When mounting acid-intolerant material for prolonged display it is advisable to laminate the mounting surface of Gatorfoam® with an alkaline paper or board.Applications of White Gatorfoam
