Pliable foam 4x8 sheets

Hi All, I'm having a heck of a time finding what I am looking for. I've had a lot of "yes we have it", but when I ask if it can be "rolled up", I am told NO. :

I have had tons of this stuff in all different thicknesses while shipping and receiving but I haven't any now and need about 4 to 6 sheets.

I don't even know what it's called. As a matter of fact I probably have some on order that is the "hard" stuff. I want the pliable stuff so I can move a lot of items that I don't want scratched and don't want them moving around. I want to sand-wich them between some 1" foam sheets.

Can any of you advise? Or if there is a better place to post this, feel free to move it or let me know.

Thanks a bunch.

I know of no sheet foam that is rollable if it has any thickness at all. You may can use fan fold foam boards, but they are only about 3/8" thick and the fan is about 8 to 12" wide. Easy to handle.

It sounds to me like you are looking for the foam used in the upholstery business. Google "Upholstery Foam Cushion", offers medium and high density as options.

Cheap carpet padding works well for this...not 1" thick but you could use several layers....

You are probably looking for foam rubber.

Future Foam 3 in. Thick Multipurpose Foam-10030BULK3 - The Home Depot

There is a company called Future Foam that may be of some help.
