FOAM:

Garge Les GONESSE ISOPAR
24 avenue des morillons
ZI des Doucettes
95140 GARGES Les GOESSE
France

The material that you want for the canard is Styrofoam FB. Their part number is 0013770. The material itself is made by Dow Europe in Switzerland.
 
EPOXY
This depends very much on your choice of epoxy but I have found a good source in Germany for the MGS epoxy that I use. I started with the 335 series epoxies but have moved to the 285 series. I have always used the slow curing system. My source in Germany is Lange-Ritter.
 
FIBERGLASS, PEELPLY, MICROBALLOONS:
I ordered all my fiberglass, with the exception of the spar tape, from a company called Gazechim Composites. Their address is:
GAZECHIM COMPOSITES
Comptoir Villparisis
6, avenu Jean Monnet
ZI de l'Ambresis
77270 VILLEPARISIS
Their reference number for the UNI is 92415. Their reference number for the BI is 92125. Their prices are quite good but only if you purchase entire rolls. A cozy will take 2 or 3 rolls of BI and 2 or 3 rolls of UNI. I also ordered the peel ply from them. The references are 1616/100. You can also get a gigantic tub of microballoons from them. Glass microballoons are called out in the plans, reference RZ1476 but phenolic are much lighter, reference RZ502. Unfortunately, the phenolic are incompatible with the MGS epoxies.

The spar tape can be purchased at ATG composites:
A.T.G Composite
ZI La Fléchette
42800 Dargoire

fax : +33 (4) 77 83 42 14
The spar tape is so specialized that they do not have a reference number. Instead, you have to order "ruban 75mm, UD, 610g/m"
