Default Adams Foamboard

Anyone notice the $ Tree (adams)foamboard lately is harder to remove the papeer? For awhile there i could remove paper by just pulling it off.
No problem, but now i have to use Awsome Cleaner and a lot of rubbing to get
the paper off. I think they were not using glue for some batches and just heated and pressed the paper on. But they must have gone back to using glue again.

Love that Awesome Cleaner product. Still have some from about 5 years ago.

Crash, as I recall, after removing the paper sandwich, you're left without 3mm thick depron. Sound right ?

Crash There is a video on You Tube where a guy just sprays DTFB with plain old Rubbing alcohol and the paper peals right off the board. I forget his name but he has a few videos on YT. Hope this helps fdnyjery aka Jerry

I've noticed a difference also, It does not bend as well and splits when making folded wings. One side of the paper comes off fairly easy after you wet it down with hot water and bend the board a bit. The other side is a pain to get off.

Ross foamboard is a pain to peel, you might need similar method for the new $tree stuff. I use adhesive transfer tape to start the process.

If yoo leave the paper on one side you can bend the foam nicely.

I'm not a fan of leaving paper on DTF.
Building Lite is right

Yes but in certain places leaving paper on one side for bending is right.
And usually not too heavy either.

Crash ROSS Board can be gotten at Wallmart. Some times they have it in stock by their Poster Boards or you can ask a manager to order some I ordered a whole case for like 18.00 bucks 50 pieces. Granted its probably not as strong as DTFB but if you double it up its as strong as you need for our foamies and besides it's really cheap. Hope this helps fdnyjery aka Jerry
