Foam Board also known as Foam Core Board is a lightweight acid free (white only) mount board made from polystyrene sandwiched between sheets of hot pressed paper.
For general use 5mm thick board is the most popular. 3mm is often prone to warping, 10 mm is recommended for free standing displays.
Foam Board is recomended for exhibition production, presentations and model making.
Always test the adhesive before applying finished work, some glues contain polystyrene solvents. Spraymount and Photomount adhesives are commonly used to mount pictures, but must be used in a well ventilated space and you must spray the artwork not the board.
