    Does anyone know where I can buy Styrosafe in Australia? Looks like i will have to import myself from USA or Europe. Expensive exercise

    ATL
    Boat Pacific
    Volksglas
    All say that Duratec is the manufacturer and that ATL is the importer. ATL said they don't import it.

    I see, maybe contact the technical people at a large polystyrene maker, they may know, or know of an alternate product. FGI sells a lot of resins, they may know something.

    Good to know they have a new name. They kept the shitty website with no product information nor prices, so it still looks like them.

    I work for Hawkeye and covered Australia. ATL doesn’t stock it, but can get it, the issue is order size and timing. How much do you need and how soon.

    You can also order it from other distributors and have it shipped to you.

    And what exactly are you planning to do, there may be other options.
