  • PVC foam gaskets and seals custom made to your requirements

    PVC foam is a closed cell foam with very low moisture absorption. It is ideal for indoor or outdoor applications due to its ability to resist environmental extremes. PVC foam gaskets are used in a wide range of applications including, signage, display and point of sale items.

    Utilising our range of converting capabilities, we can supply custom components to your exact specification. We can also laminate your PVC foam with a double sided adhesive to create a single or double sided foam tape.

    PVC foam characteristics:

    • Available in a range of colours and densities
    • Fire resistant (self extinguishing)
    • Excellent fatigue resistance and will not rot
    • Lightweight, durable and resilient
    • Large operating temperature range
    • Solvent and chemical resistant
