Where's a good (i.e. cheap) place to buy Minicel Foam in Vancouver?

What density / stiffness would I need? I see there are a few different types available , L200, M200, etc. M200 is stiffer than L200.

I plan on using the foam to make removable bulkheads on my kayak.

Also, what type of glue would be best suited for joining pieces of minicel foam?

Thanks

I'm not sure where to get minicell (you might try giving Ecomarine a call -- there's a link to their website in our Paddling Links section).

I use contact cement to glue minicell and have never had a problem with it. I apply two coats before joining and it works great.

That price is the going rate, seems like, and you definitely want the firmer grade. I bought some L200 and it is OK for the last layer, but not ok for the seatbottom base, etc.
