What do you mean the 'mix' for it? Are you asking where to buy foam?

are you looking to create your own foam? weapons are made from foam sheets that are purchased. you may need to further explain what you are asking here.

You probably aren't going to have any luck. The foam we typically use is crosslinked polyethelene, which describes how the actual molecules are linked to each other. From what I understand, there are two main ways that these molecules get crosslinked: via a chemical reaction and via irradiation. In any case, it's unlikely that you're going to be able to find something that you can do in a home setting.

What ultimately are you trying to accomplish?
