Did you say shadow foam? EVA Shadow Foam is perfect for custom foam inserts, having a 5mm black layer on top of a 25mm blue layer will help you achieve maximum organization and visual control in your workspace!
EVA foam is the acronym for the closed cell ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer foam and is used as an effective substitute for a variety of materials. It is a suitable substitute for natural rubber, vinyl, neoprene, polyurethane and PVC foams, wood composites, felts, fiberglass, and mineral wool.
EVA is a polymer that approaches elastomeric materials in softness and flexibility yet can be processed like other thermoplastics. The material has good clarity and gloss, low-temperature toughness, stress-crack resistance, hot-melt adhesive waterproof properties, and resistance to UV radiation. EVA foam's greater recovery characteristics make it an excellent and cost-effective substitute for rubber in most applications. EVA foams have a variety of applications where sturdiness is of utmost importance. Examples include splints, cervical collars, exercise mats, shoe soles, and orthotic supports.
Other common uses for EVA foam are, production, stage props, transportation, pool toys, cosplay armour making, spa covers, camping mats, yoga blocks, and boat fenders.

Carving EVA Foam
EVA foam is easy to cut with a trim router which makes it popular for DIY - or rather CIY (Cut-It-Yourself) - custom foam inserts. What is a trim router? Where can I buy one? A trim router is a small handheld electric tool for routing or cutting into foam, plastics and wood.
We use the Ryobi Trim Router 400W (available at Bunnings for under $100) to effortlessly cut shapes that perfectly fit our gear. Cutting out shapes using a stanley knife on EVA foam can prove extremely hard to do though straight lines are possible with a steel ruler and a sharp knife! We suggest using a trim router with a straight twin blade bit to create custom storage for your tools, audio gear, cameras, ipads/tablets, hobby gear and much more.
