Default What is that black foam you stick DIP's onto called?

We need some at work. It's maybe 1/4" thick, and you can just stick DIP parts right into it. Used a lot of time for part packaging, they send the part on a little square of it. I'm looking for a big sheet. Thanks!

It's called 'conductive foam', among other things!.

Yes, that is what it is called. There is no international standards to what color it is but most are pink or gray. Actually the chemical that is added to the foam does not last forever and begins to loose its effectiveness after six months.

After a while it may even eat your chips!
