Aero Depron will need more localised re enforcement than standard Depron and can be mixed and matched with regular Depron , Balsa or Carbon to make lightweight model aeroplanes that seemed impossible not so long ago!
Aero 9mm Depron as well as 6 mm Depron are often used in the construction of large model aeroplanes and boats where weight loss is needed over conventional materials. Depron makes for superb composites when mixes and matched with wood and carbon.

Depron for Modelling
Originally used as containers for fast-food and flooring insulation, Depron has been established as the perfect material for producing models, especially model aircraft.
What makes Depron so good?
Unlike materials such as balsa, Depron modelling foam does not have a grain and therefore does not split. Each sheet is manufactured identically so weight and density are consistent from sheet-to-sheet, for when balance and performance are crucial. Depron is lightweight, as light as 28kg/m³, whilst maintaining incredible strength and because of the structure of the foam, Depron cuts very easily and cleanly, making it effortless to work.
There are two main types of Depron which are recommended for modelling, Depron and Depron Aero - Both are available on site
