Blue foam used to be called Dow Floormate 300, but Dow sold their insulation business and the blue foam has been off the market for over a year. It now seems to be back in manufacture by the new company Ravago.

Insulation Express are the retail arm of Sheffield Insulations group and they are selling single packs containing 8 sheets of foam 2500 x 600.
