Title:

What is the foam/cushion on the uppercase?

Text:

Hey everyone,

I'm currently cleaning a uppercase of my old macbook pro but there is a part that I cannot identify or give a name to. It is the series of foam that line the internal part of the upper chassis where the monitor connects to it. I'm guessing it is some sort of cushion for the monitor hinge but I've been searching all over the internet to find the name for what this part may be or if there are any replacements. The closest I've found to the material is iPhone 7 Lightning Port Connector Foam Pad: [product|IF332-037] I've been looking for something so I can replace the ones I have because they are starting to tear. Any pointers or directions would be helpful! Thankful!

Looks like it is an anti-static conductive foam that they use, density and thickness is unknown.
