Fortunately our supplier of Depron foam had a fairly large stock of foam before Selit of Germany stopped shipping the hobby quality foam. It appears that we will still have foam through the summer. If you have any intention of getting your last DW kit, I can’t promises anything so don’t wait til they’re gone because they will be gone forever.
The status of kits on this site reflects what is left in stock, if you don’t see it we are no longer stocking it. It looks like we have enough 9mm foam to carry us into early summer.
For over a decade, RCFoam has been proud to supply the US market with Depron foam, a brand of closed cell XPS imported from Europe.
Regretfully, Selit, the manufacturer of Depron brand foam, has communicated their intentions to quit supplying the hobby industry with consistent, high quality foam. The reason stated is that their production facilities are at 100% capacity manufacturing flooring foam, a market where quality and consistency are not important.
For many people, including us at RCFoam, this information is catastrophic. Many small business owners have built their business or production around high quality Depron and some of them will have no choice but to close up shop. If there were anything we could have done to prevent this situation, we surely would have.
Effective immediately, we are discontinuing our 6mm Depron kits. We have enough 9mm to produce our 40″-48″ kits through the end of the year. After it’s gone there will be no replacement and DWFoamies will shut down shop.
The success of DWFoamies over the previous 12 years has been largely due to its amazing customer base. We would like to thank you for your support.
