Default Where to get foam pad for plane cradle?

Hey guys, I'm looking for small diameter pipe insulation like you see on pre built field boxes. It had to be 1/4, maybe 3/8 inch max inside diameter. I've searched the internet, and can't find what I'm looking for. Any help?

Ask an air conditioning or refrigeration company if they use foam insulation on any of their refrigerant lines. If yes, they might give you a small amount for free; or at least tell you where they buy it. The smallest I have seen at Home Depot is half inch, and not every store carries that size.

I've checked 5 different hardwae stores in 2 towns, and have found 1/2 inch to be the smallest ID, and it's OD is too thick as well. The kind I'm looking for is different texture than regular foam stuff. It has more of a rubbery feel, and 1/4 -3/8 ID, and 1/2 too 5/8 OD. AC hoses do have a inulation that is similar. I will try the local AC company Monday. Thanks.
