Replacing deteriorating foam in Anvil Flight Case

    I have an anvil flight case for my gk mb150e but haven't used it in years. Pulled it out the other day and noticed the interior foam is crumbling and falling apart in a big gooey mess. Anyone know where I can get some of this thick dense foam that they use in these fitted flight cases? I'm on Guam so I don't really want to send the case back to Anvil to get re-foamed, hoping someone might know a source.

    Yeah, it's a PITA, isn't it? I think that the industry has moved away from the foam formula that does that, but there's lots of the stuff out there. I refoamed a case myself with regular foam padding, but getting all that old stuff out of there was pretty hard and it made a huge mess. It sticks to everything.

    Sorry, I don't have a solution for you, only commiseration.

    thanks for the link, quite the selection of stuff they have!

    Looks like something like this might work, just need to figure out how much I would need in inches:


    might have to find another source though, UK to Guam might not be worth the shipping. But I'm on the right track now.

    yeah, I've had a few Anvil cases from 10-20 years back that are still in great shape but you open it up and the foam has turned into a sticky nightmare - now that's a good band name:)
