Mechanical Filter Foam for Sump

Hi Guys,

Is there any particular type of foam that you need to use for mechanical filtration? I am planning my new tank setup at the minute and need custom shape/size foam to go in my sump.

Thank for the replies. I should have pointed out that I am UK based... Not sure how big the UK contingent is on here? You have certainly given me something to go on though.
