Question Copper Tube Foam Insulation

I bought some foam insulation you would buy to insulate the outside of a pipe that has adhesive to stick it together. I cut the foam off where the adhesive was. Im using this to float some breeder nets. Does anyone know if it is safe to use?

Should be, I don't believe they treat that foam with a fungicide or mold inhibitor. The glue you remove would have been my concern...I think you are good.

I'd rinse it just for good measure, but I agree, should be fine. Assuming it's the Polyethylene variety (plastic stuff available everywhere).
