Silicone Sponge Gaskets
A.J. Rubber & Sponge Ltd.’s line of non-metallic custom sponge and foam gaskets and seals includes silicone sponge gaskets. Our silicone sponge gaskets are produced from uncured silicone gum which expands to a predetermined size by means of a specialized manufacturing process. Sometimes referred to as “expanded silicone”, this type of material is of a closed cell nature, meaning that its cells are highly effective at sealing in gas and moisture.
Our silicone sponge gaskets are available in thicknesses between 1/16 to 2 inches, are very soft compared to solid silicone gaskets, and provide superior water sealing abilities under numerous applications. The density of A.J. Rubber & Sponge Ltd.’s silicone sponge gaskets is typically defined by the compression force of deflection in a PSI range compressed by 25% (a range of 2 to 5 PSI compression force of deflection is rated as soft, whereas a range of 14 to 20 PSI is rated as hard). To discover how our silicone sponge gaskets can assist your company’s application, or to learn more about our many other custom sponge and foam gaskets and seals, please contact us.
