- Thank you. I am familiar with Ethafoam. I use it for portable mats.
It is very good, but expensive. There is as type of construction
insulation foam that has been used with good results. I believe that
it is what they use at Estrella for the archery war point targets.
It is not as expensive as Ethafoam and comes in four by eight
sheets. I would need enough to put behind several sets of three high
