    Are you located in the States?
    Have you been able to locate a dealer/retailer for the Dow Panel Core 20-30-40 XPS?
    Looks like O-C makes their PinkCore Tight Tolerance Board in 15-25-40-60 XPS.

    As per Idasho, I guess there aren't any. The stuff at the hardware store is the same material, but the panel core sheets have been planed to tight tolerances. I've noticed the OC Foamular varies in thickness a bit, but I can deal with that.

    You can purchase both planed panels in the US, the only caveat is the volumes. I recall it was 60K SF. They are made to order special runs for both Dow and OC, and you don't have to get them in standard sheet sizes. They can do continuous length of close to 20 ft. The cost of those panels are almost double per SF vs standard "stamped" panels.

    Yep. That's the usual problem. The HD XPS foams don't have high public demand so they're not usually stocked by Lowes, HD and retail lumber outlets.
    This last autumn I just discovered that HD in my area carries the Foamular 250 year-round.

    BTW some of the surfboard epoxies are quick setting (e.g. Resin Research).

    2. UV stability is excellent with little or no discoloration in over 1000 hours.

    3. This system contains UV absorber which allows it to be used in conjunction with sensitive substrates. I.E. Urethane foam, PVC foam, light colored woods, etc.
