...there are advantages for me to get a roll of material into my basement as opposed to managing a 5x10 square piece around a corner. If the gator board is flexible enough perhaps there's no issues.
MM will reply--but fyi my 1/2" GF board has no flex whatsoever, zero! I imagine there might be some flex in a much thinner board, but I sure would not count on it (depending on the corner you have to navigate). And a thinner board means more potential for damage just getting it home...

But it if has no flex than it's a no go.
That thickness Gatorboard will have plenty of Flexibility.
Also, I haven't checked the Wilson prices lately but given the price quote I got today from Regal, it should be comparable.
Well check for sure because WA-DW should be significantly more expensive
Thus, if MM says performance is equal between the 2 with an applied spray technique, I think I know what I need to do.
Well MM sez:
WA-DW has more a bit more gain than GB, but it comes with enough extra "frame-related" mounting issues to negate any advantage that offers. Add to that the hike in price and that makes GF/GB my advised selection.
BTW, I and one other person carried the 96" x 54" sheet you see in this thread around a upward 90 degree corner in a stair well. Yes, it was sent up at a steep angle, but it easily bent around the corner, and it was no real effort to keep the inside surface from out of contact with the inside edges of the corner as well..
You'll have to bugger it up pretty badly (...as in gouge or peel....) to not make any coating cover up a 'rub-like' blemish.
While it is a thread on spraying Gator Foam, the general info on this thread makes me feel that it should be a sticky thread. Just my $.02
