Subject: Fome-Cor

In response to Hilary Kaplan's inquiry regarding the use of Fome-Cor to
block windows, the primary objection is that Fome-Cor is highly
flammable.  I'm sure it would make your insurance underwriters break out
in a cold sweat!  Otherwise, it would be a bit translucent and
certainly inexpensive.  There would be no real need to use acid-free
Fome-Cor for this use.  There are many other composite board products
manufactured, some of which are fire resistant.  Contact Fomebords,
1-800-362-6267 for a catalogue with extensive specifications.  Studio
Specialties is another supplier of board products with sometimes
excellent prices.  They have branches in Chicago, Los Angeles, San
Francisco, Toronto and Montreal.
