Foam Tapes

 
PVC Foam Tapes

Foam 1 - Soft Density

Benefits:
  • The closed cell foam structure completely seals out air, moisture, vapour, light & dust when
    compressed at least 30%.
  • Excellent in applications requiring a positive seals on irregular surfaces or when flex & conformability is critical.
  • Strong & resilient designed to absorb shocks, cushion, deadens sound & eliminates excess vibration.
  • The foam is resistant to UV, ozone, oxidation and fungi, making it well suited for exterior applications.
  • This foam is Flame Retardant – meeting standard FMVSS 302.
  • Good resistance to most chemicals.
Applications:
  • Used as an effective seal in concrete form work.
  • Sealing between door & window frames and light fittings.
  • Positive seal onto aluminium cladding profiles in portable building construction.
  • Used to provide a watertight seal for roof nails.
  • Certified for use in automotive & transportation sealing applications.
  • Sealing tape for kitchen & wet room stainless steel benches.
  • Not suitable for long term open & close applications.
Foam 2 - Medium Density

Benefits:
  • The closed cell foam structure completely seals out air, moisture, vapour, light & dust when
    compressed at least 30%.
  • Excellent dimensional stability & cushions against heavy loads – “Tough”
  • Very good combination of flexibly & conformability with strength & wear resistance.
  • The foam is resistant to UV, ozone, oxidation and fungi, making it well suited for exterior applications.
  • Good resistance to most chemicals.
Applications:
  • Used extensively in the automotive, HVAC, and construction industries to provide air & weather tight seals; for gasketing, cushioning, vibration control in speakers, vehicles, electronic components, door frames, etc.
  • Permanent sealing of electrical & electronic housing – either plastic or metal.
  • Sealing applications in concrete form work.
  • Positive seal onto aluminium & wood cladding profiles in portable building construction.
  • Sealing tape for kitchen & wet room stainless steel benches
  • It is a clean, waste free substitute for liquid sealants.
  • Not suitable for long term open & close applications.
     
Foam 3 - Medium/Firm Density

Benefits:
  • The closed cell foam structure completely seals out air, moisture, vapour, light & dust when
    compressed at least 30%.
  • Excellent dimensional stability & cushions against heavy loads – “Extra Tough”
  • Very good combination of flexibly & conformability with extra strength & wear resistance.
  • The foam is resistant to UV, ozone, oxidation and fungi, making it well suited for exterior applications.
  • Good resistance to most chemicals.
Applications:
  • Used extensively in the automotive, HVAC, and construction industries to provide air & weather tight seals; for gasketing, cushioning, vibration control in speakers, vehicles, electronic components, door frames, etc.
  • Excellent for reducing noise & vibration in Marine Aluminium boats.
  • Sealing commercial exterior air conditioning mounted units.
  • Sealing metal housing for motors, fans & industrial machinery.
  • Not suitable for long term open & close applications

PVC Nitrile Foam Tapes - Medium/Firm Density

Benefits:
  • Very good resistance to compression set, tearing & abrasion.
  • Excellent resistance to most petroleum products, oils, chemicals & solvents.
  • Flame Retardant to FMVSS-302 and self extinguishing.
  • Electrically non-conductive – used as an electrolysis barrier.

Applications:
  • Excellent for sealing switchboard cabinets & electrical enclosures.
  • All closures requiring constant opening & closing.
  • Used for high temperature critical closures (UL94 rating).
  • Used as an effective weather stripping & insulation sealing foam in building & construction.
  • Effective sealing tape for automotive, refrigeration, air conditioning & marine applications.
  • Suitable for die cutting and the making of gasket profiles. 

EPDM Foam Tapes - Medium/Firm Density

Benefits:
  • Excellent foam for extreme environmental conditions - Exterior, UV, snow & rain.
  • Very good foam for higher temperatures – up to 125°C.
  • Flame Retardant to FMVSS-302 and self extinguishing.
  • Plasticiser free (plastic compatible), non-toxic & long life.
  • The ability to resume its normal shape after being stretched or compressed.
Applications:
  • Excellent for noise & vibration dampening in automotive & marine engine rooms.
  • Sealing exterior and interior light fixtures.
  • Used as an effective weather stripping & insulation sealing foam in building & construction.
  • Effective sealing tape for automotive, refrigeration, air conditioning & marine applications.
  • Compatible with most silicones.
  • Sealing domestic and commercial glazing systems.
  • Suitable for die cutting and the making of gasket profiles.

PE (Polyethylene) Foam Tapes - Medium Density

Benefits:
  • PE Foam contains no plasticisers, so is safe to use with plastic materials.
  • This foam has a FDA Food Compliance for direct contact with food & water.
  • Good resistance to most solvents, oils & chemicals.
  • Resistant to weathering, fungi and aging.
Applications:
  • Excellent for various sealing and closure applications in air conditioning, heater assembly, rigid ducting, wall panelling, vending machines & display cabinets.
  • Used as a barrier to prevent electrolytic corrosion between different metals.
  • Often used to cushion & stop vibration in manufactured machinery.
  • Both food and water compatible.
  • Good for gap filling especially in construction concrete formwork.
  • Suitable for die cutting and the making of gasket profiles.
