Posted on 16 January 2019

Hey Canada, we’ve heard your cries for a reliable and affordable EVA foam brand in the north. Fret no more, we’ve added EVA foam sheets to our crafting shop! Brought to you by Lumin’s Workshop, we’re excited to introduce two kinds of high-quality sheet EVA foam: Form-Lite and Hard-Lite. Read on to learn how you can best use them, and you’ll never go back to floor mats ever again!

 

Make pieces that last.

We know how much time and energy goes into your builds, so make it last by choosing these high-quality EVA foams. While Hard-Lite is incredibly tear resistant, is Form-Lite is the most flexible and stretchable, without sacrificing quality. 

 

Large Sheets to fit your patterns

We know you have big dreams and big projects, so we’ve got sizes that match your ambition. Both Form-Lite and Hard Lite come in half sheets (50cm x 100cm), and full sheets (100cm x 100cm). Available in eight thicknesses from 1mm up to 10mm. 

High-Quality foam, North of the Border.

Hey Canadians, say goodbye to surcharges and surprise customs costs at the border. With our warehouse located just outside of Toronto, we’ll get your foam to your door so you can get started on that last minute project, no sweat!

 

Thermoplastics? No problem!

With its incredibly smooth texture, both Form-Lite and Hard-Lite are compatible with your favourite thermoplastics - if you need them that is!  Both foams are extremely durable, and with a proper surface treatment at the end of your build, you might just say goodbye to those heavy thermoplastics for good ;)
