What is filter foam made out of?

Is it some type of polymer? I mean, could I stock up on it and store it for years before actually using it? That is, if I stored it in fairly gentle conditions...

Filter foam is an expanded polymer, probably polyethylene, cheap and biologically neutral. Like most plastics it will last indefinitely if kept out of the sun (UV) and not exposed to chemicals or smog.
