If you were to melt foam it would lose it's foaminess, but being foamy would make it very difficult to heat evenly. steve' seems to know what this stuff is - comment noted there.

These things usually use polystyrene sheet I think. But plastic-sheet, fairly thick either way.

It does release lots of entertaining toxic gases, though. So there's that.
