What is Depron?
Developed to provide heat and sound insulation, Depron is a foam sheet material that has become popular in building model airplanes and for use in constructing architectural models. It is constructed from individual closed cells of polystyrene plastic and comes in either white or gray sheets. Depron is a fully recycled material, and doesn't contain potentially harmful chemicals like freon and halogen.Due to its unique cell structure, Depron is lightweight, strong and reliable, able to maintain its physical and mechanical characteristics no matter its use. It also does not age, giving Depron remarkable durability.

This 2mm Depron has been formed with hot
water to fit the airfoil ribs of a delta wing
 

The prop cover for this model was made from
2mm Depron and curved around a tin can.
 

A section of 6mm Depron formed to a diameter of 8cm
using hot water to soften the foam and then bending
around a template
 

This 3mm Depron has been formed after dipping it into
a cup of hot water and bending it by hand. Once it
cools it regains its original strength and keeps its shape
 

This example and the one below show two pieces of
Depron which have been glued with UHU Por Glue and
then sanded with sand paper to make a smooth curve.

What is Modelling Foam?

Modelling Foam is a similar product to Depron in that it is made from closed cell foam with almost identical characteristics to Depron. In fact, Modelling Foam is formed using exactly the same material as Depron and the forming process is also very much the same. Modelling Foam, however, does not have a “skin” on the outside as Depron does. It is soft on the surface. Also, of importance to note is that with Modelling Foam, the closed cell structure is not a tight / dense as it is with Depron. This means that with slightly larger closed cells, Modelling Foam is not as strong as Depron. It is however considerably lighter due to the less densely packed cells.

   
   
   
   
What is EPP?
EPP stands for Expanded Polypropylene, and it is a closed cell foam. This foam is very durable and tough. You can bend it to a great degree without it breaking. If you do have a crash and the EPP is torn, it will match up again because it retains it's shape and can easily be glued back together with any foam safe glue such as UHU Expanded Polystyrene glue (otherwise known as UHU Por). Because of this, it is said to be very resistant to damage and therefore a perfect material to use in RC planes. Unlike Depron, EPP can't be formed with heat as it will not hold it's shape when the heat is removed. This is why most EPP planes have pre-formed parts. Scratch builders design their planes to be able to be built with the flat sheets of EPP. It can easily be bent around a frame or structure and glued in place.
