Heard it's the real deal, but was wondering what any of you know or have heard?

Political comments have no place on Sways. Ever!!!
I will assume McD is referring to an important ingredient in polyurethane foam, toluene diisocyanate (TDI). There is a reported shortage in Europe.

Thanks for finding that link Stoney. Hadn't read anything definitive on the situation until that.
What I am suprised buy is that there was no mention of TDI manufacture in India or China. Do you now whether or not any TDI is manufactured in these countries? With West Coast lockdowns and Blank Shortages; you'd think there would be a rush on. I sold everything I had this past season due to lockdown and pent up demand. Then wasn't sure if I could travel to Calif. to get more. It's amazing to me that Arctic and Millennium have been able to manage a consistent transport schedule across the Southern Border.
What I've heard is USB is having problems sourcing it from Germany. So they're allocating their inventory - whatever that means. Well hey, there's plenty of EPS to build boards with.
Similar to what I heard. Also there may be an advantage to manufacture in Ensenada BC. Glad I got my eggs in the basket they are in. Just brought back 100 from O'side
