Since everyone is curious about usage. These are EVA foam and they are wildly popular in cosplay and DYI community.
EVA foam is the acronym for the closed cell ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer foam used as an effective substitute for a variety of materials used in production. It is a suitable substitute for natural rubber, vinyl, neoprene, polyurethane and PVC foams, wood composites, felts, fiberglass, and mineral wool. The EVA foam material characteristically provides good gloss and clarity, remains strong at low-temperatures, retains its resistance to UV radiation and stress-cracking, and possesses hot-melt adhesive waterproof properties.
Benefits gained from using the EVA foam substitute in production are comparable to traditionally used materials that exhibit
• vibration and impact absorptions,
• weather and chemical, oil, and fuel spill / splash resistances,
• thermal insulation and acoustical properties, and
• resilience / buoyancy and low-water absorption.
