Finding the right foam Answered

Hey all, 
I'm trying to build blocks out of foam that need to be anti static foam because it is going to interact with a tablet touch screen It needs to be about 1in thick. I was planning on using polyethylene foam but I wasn't sure about where to go to buy it could anyone help? I'm open to suggestions about better foam choices as well but my budget isn't very large. Thanks!

A couple of ideas:
I don't know the size of your blocks , so this may all be impractcle.
1) Lots of discarded luggage has foam padding in it to protect laptops etc.
2) same with furniture cussions
4) Thrifyt sho[ps have camping pads and yoga pads
5) .Expandable foam in a can ( Great Stuff ) can create foam blocks of varying densities. Stuff is tricky to work with.
Good Luck

How much foam do you need? (i.e dimensions)

Last time I went looking for the stuff, I almost passed out when I saw the prices. o_0
