In UK Plastazote (R) is popular in Museums.
Here there is a supplier called Ramplas, but I would guess that the product can be supplied by a more local agent locatable on the Web. I can provide UK contact details if you need them.

Subject: [ZOOARCH] foam
I am looking for some sort of foam pad, ideally one that can be cut easily and is no more than 5cm (2") thick, to line specimen drawers and prevent bones from rolling around. Styrofoam is too messy to cut. All suggestions welcome!
