Industrial Rubber Ltd manufacture and supply sponge rubber seals,gaskets, extrusions and mouldings in a range of polymers. We can supply open and closed cell materials.
Closed cell sponges have low fluid absorption. Usually supplied as sheets for punched out seals & gaskets, insulation etc.
Open cell have high fluid absorption and are usually supplied as sheet for the manufacture of seals and gaskets where a high degree of compression is required to gap fill.
Industrial Rubber moulded sponges are generally closed cell with an integral skin. They can be manufactured in a range of polymers including NR, EPDM, Neoprene, Silicone depending on the environmental requirements.
Recognised International specifications ASTM D 1056 and SAE J18
Hardness is usually classified by load deflection for a 25% deflection.
Soft Usually in the range of 14 to 63 kN/M2 2 to 9 PSI.
Medium Usually in the range of 63 to 119 kN/M2.
Firm Usually in the range of 119 to 168 kN/M2
Sponge rubber has the ability to be compressed and to reduce in volume and is often used for seals when there are large tolerances of the mating parts for example ceramic pipes.
