IS SPONGE THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR APPLICATION?
Sponge is used in applications where the Seal has to cope with large tolerances such as Ceramic pipes. It is also used where there are low compression forces available to effect a seal eg. Plastic boxes and closures, automotive doors/ hoods/ boot seals.
Some Sponge rubbers have the ability to be compressed and reduce in volume so it is used in applications where large deformations are required when fitted. Solid rubbers require large loads to deflect them and behave hydraulically and bulging out when compressed.
Sponge Rubber can also be used where Thermal or Sound insulation is required.
