Closed cell foam cushions

Anyone know the specific closed cell foam that is used in cushions like:

I just attended the Chicago Sailboat show and there were a number of cushion vendors there. Good foam can be pricey, but it seems the cushions available are a bit too pricey. I''m guessing McMaster-Carr carries suitable materials that could be sewn up with Sunbrella into a reasonable cushion without too much trouble.

Anyone known a specific closed cell ILD or density (or Durometer) that is close to the commercially available cushions?
