why is this? how well does vaccuform stand up to customers wear and tare?

what are tips when dealing with this sort'a material?
why would larry spray his new haunt white but cover it up with vaccuform? ( i asked larry this but i received no reply..maybe e-mailing him, instead of sending PMs is a better way to reach him)

thank you for your time

Polystrine is more 'forgiving' in the heat. We also like ABS because it comes in black, but if you over heat it, it will 'bubble'. That can be a fun texture, but not always.
