One of our most popular gaskets are our round foam gaskets. Foam gaskets offer many different benefits to a wide variety of industries and applications, read on to find out more.
Foam Gasket Uses
The foam material is commonly used for gaskets. This is due to the fact that foam can offer a superior barrier along with fantastic bonding capabilities for plenty of different applications. For instance, gasketing, sealing, and mounting to name a few. Some other applications for round foam gaskets include:
- Fluid restricting
- Noise reduction
- Weather resistance
- Electrical absorption
Foam Gasket Types
Foam gasket material comes in different cell structures. But, the two core ones are open cell foam gaskets and closed cell foam gaskets. Open cell ones are usually used for absorbing shock or vibrations. Whereas, closed cell foam gaskets will usually be used as environmental seals where performance in outdoor weather is pivotal. Foam gaskets can be made from lots of different types of foams. This includes, silicone foam, EPDM foam, neoprene foam, and foam tapes.
