I am about to do my first custom build and would like to know what Expanding Foam Brands I should use or if there are any I should avoid.

I have use soudal fills and bonds foam which is pretty good and never had any problems with it.

But now I prefer to use polystyrene board sheets 50mm thick.

I use polyester for this viv, I find it a lot easier to work with.

Sounds interesting, is polyester board different to expanded polystyrene? If so where do you source your sheets?

Sorry about that looks like a mistake, I meant to type polystyrene not polyester, I've just noticed. dam spell check

I get the polystyrene boards from wickes.

The best one I have used is Soudal 2k, bought from Marc at Dartfrog. It's a two component foam with a hardener which cures quickly and doesn't expand a crazy amount; a bit more expensive, but infinitely easier to work with than the normal stuff.
