Captain America's Shield could be Made out this Bulletproof Foam

This is some tough foam.
Sound impossible that foam-based armor could stop armor piercing rounds? Testing has proved it is indeed possible.
In tests conducted by the development team, the foam body armor was able to defeat an armor-piercing bullet. And on impact, their foam smashed the bullet into powder.
They actually made a shield out of the foam to shoot at.
To challenge the foam material with bullets, the team built a shield. The strike face - the side facing the weapon - was made with the new composite metal foam together with boron carbide ceramics. The backplates – the side that would face the user - were made of Kevlar. 
I wonder how much this shield weighs? Also it would be interesting to see if you can make clothes out of this foam Kevlar mixed.
