    Question 1 year ago on Step 4

    I am interested in Styrofoam and anything positive that we can make/do with it. You mentioned that the product that you obtained is hard, what can we compare it to? Can I make a laminate to combine with cement as such, to increase it's "strength" to make a table top. I am sure there are multiple experiments on the Internet but yours is quite interesting and I am really curious to find out if you made use of it and how. If there are more articles addressing the use of that laminate, I will really appreaciate the information. Thanks in advance
