If you are in the transportation, telecom, aerospace, manufacturing, medical, oil exploration and space industries, we have a customized solution for you.
Foam gaskets are best used for those times when shock absorption is required. Besides shock absorption, they are great for dampening vibrations. Foam gaskets come in soft, medium, firm, and extra-firm grades, giving you compressibility options. One significant advantage is the improved resistance to flame, offering excellent heat insulation.
When you need a gasket thin enough to bend and wrap, choose a sponge gasket. They are smooth and provide cushioning and padding where required. Sponge gaskets are manufactured in two basic types, open-cell and closed-cell. Each one works under specific uses. Because of its low outgassing, it can be used in many applications.
Because of their tightly-packed molecular structure, solid gaskets are not as flexible as other forms. Though they aren’t always soft, some have a lower hardness (i.e., durometer) than their sponge counterparts. Solid gaskets come in both lower and higher durometers. Each type offers strong sealing with closure forces in relation to their hardness.
Finding the right material for your project may seem difficult since each type has its own characteristics. We help you in selecting the best type of gasket, including:
