Foam gaskets are just one type of the many gasket variations you can get here at Stephens Gaskets. Furthermore, we are very proud to be a leading gasket manufacturer. As experts, we recognise the wide demands for high-quality precision machined components, in various shapes, forms, materials, and sizes. Moreover, we strive to offer mechanical solutions that support a wide range of industries and requirements. Therefore, you’ll find multiple variations of each component that we manufacture and supply here. Subsequently, this includes both, open cell foam gaskets and closed cell sponge gaskets.
What is a Foam Gasket?
Our foam gaskets act as a ‘seal’ against certain elements and constituents. For example, if two components, such as pipes, push together to separate one part from the next, there is sometimes a risk of a gap. What this means is, it can be hard to guarantee that the seal is completely closed off. That is why gaskets are regularly used for additional support. At Stephens Gaskets, we manufacture various types of gaskets. Although, the materials in which they are made all depend on the application and what they will seal against.
These kinds of gaskets are different from solid rubber gaskets, as the material is a blown variant of standard rubber. As a result, this makes it a lighter and much more compressible gasket material. Another key point is that foam is very easy to manufacture and manipulate, which means the possibilities for bespoke gaskets are endless – in terms of sizes, shapes, and thicknesses. Additionally, they can be made either conductive or non-conductive, have great sound absorption and are fire retardant. Therefore making the gaskets suitable for a wide range of industrial environments. Foam is also ideal for hot and cold insulators, and is 100% recyclable – which makes it a great material to use for environmental purposes.
Stephens Gaskets | Leading Gasket Suppliers
As a highly established and experienced foam gasket supplier, we manufacture and supply the gaskets to any given specification. More importantly, we can create both neoprene gaskets and EPDM gaskets – dependant on what you require from the component. Without doubt, these two materials are the most common form of foam gasket, regularly referred to as ‘closed cell gaskets’. Another key benefit is that closed cell gaskets make excellent sealing solutions against water and air.
Our gaskets are made using only the highest quality resources to guarantee quality and consistency every time. Furthermore, for added convenience and ease-of-use, we also supply gaskets with self-adhesive backing too. The foam gaskets are available in a huge variety of colours and thicknesses. The most common thicknesses being between 1.5mm and 25mm. Although our standard colours of foam gasket are black and white, our polyethylene gaskets are available in a wide variety of colours. Internal cut-outs can also be implemented into your gaskets, including round holes, square holes, and oval slots. No matter what type of outside configuration you are looking for with your gaskets, you can be sure that with our state-of-the-art machinery and our skilled team of technicians, we’ll be able to accommodate your requests – and at the most competitive prices too.
