FAQs about Foam Boards & Mount Boards
Can I Spray Paint Foamboard?
Some of the solvents in spray paint may harm the inside polystyrene in a foam board, and therefore, should only be used on the paper surface. Foam core boards are susceptible to moisture, and spray paint has less moisture than many other paints. It also dries faster than oil paints applied with a brush.
How To Cut Foamboard?
To cut a foam board, use a pair of strong scissors to scratch lines in the foam with a curved or straight cut. Alternatively, you can use a utility knife or a bread knife.
How Much Weight Can Foamboard Take?
Foam boards are quite strong and can hold up quite a bit of weight if distributed evenly. Of course, it depends on the type of foam board at use, size of it and sometimes brand, however, they can generally take on all your business presentation, school projects and craft needs.
