No need to save milk bottles anymore! (Steve thinks that other people have been saving their milk bottles for the plastic. Don't tell him they haven't. It would just ruin the excitement.)

Thin HDPE plastic sheets are here, and we have them in loads of great colors!  Now you can get this great material in large flat sheets, ready to cut with scissors or a knife into whatever shape your project requires.

This is the 1/64"  or "thinner" variety that I use for a variety of projects shown in some of our "How To" videos (Down & Dirty Tips n' Tricks and Tiny Tips. Check them out HERE)

Why do I love HDPE plastic? In three words, THIS STUFF ROCKS!! When you glue this very thin HDPE onto EPO foam with contact cement** (see our How To videos), it increases the "anti- tearing" strength of the foam up to ONE HUNDRED TIMES (the thinner the foam, the higher the increase), for an exceptionally small amount of weight. It's not impossible to tear, but you need some good upper body strength and TWO pair of pliers, and you still have to work at it. About one third of all damage done to foam planes during "mishaps" is done by stretching, tearing, or denting the foam, and as you might imagine, adding this HDPE to critical areas goes a long way toward eliminating that one third of crash (or aerobatic stress) damage. The other two thirds of crash damage to foam comes in the form of compression and distortion- that is, crushing, bending, twisting, and stretching. Most of that is eliminated by adding Carbon Fiber rods- gee, whaddya know? That sounds like Killer Planes Crashproofing Kits!  You add the two together and you get MAXIMUM FOAM PROTECTION! 

**NOTE: You need to put a "tooth" on HDPE plastics for best glue adhesion.  Just scratch up the entire surface with heavy sandpaper. Contact Cement or Hotglue work best with HDPE and foam.

 

HERE'S HOW TO ORDER:

You can only choose one color at a time, but it's easy to add more colors and change the number of sheets you want of each color you choose. SO-

1- Choose a color

2- Click "ADD TO CART"

You can change the number of sheets in your cart if you want more than one sheet of that color.

If you want another size or color, just click on the product in the cart, and it will bring you back to this page so you can choose another one. If you want more than one sheet of that color, once again you can change it in the cart. When you're done, each size or color choice will show up as a separate item in the cart, so you can easily see your choices on that one page.
