  • About single sided foam tapes

    A single sided foam is one which has an adhesive applied to just one side. They are frequently used for gasketing, sealing, cushioning, gap filling and insulation in a number of markets such as automotive, electronics and general industrial.

    Foam tapes are available in various thicknesses, open or closed cell, with a variety of adhesive types. Electrically conductive foam tapes are also available.

    Our range of Neoprene, PE, PU and PVC foam tapes can be laminated with a double sided tape or a transfer adhesive of your choice and die-cut into convenient shapes and sizes. 

    Single sided foam tape characteristics:

    • Conformable/flexible
    • Closed/open cell
    • Resistant to solvents and high temperatures
    • Extremely resilient to mechanical fatigue
    • Excellent ageing
    • Range of colours
    • Wide thickness range
    • Thermally conductive
    • Resistant to UV light
    • Excellent shock absorption
    • Excellent compression set and creep resistance
    • Available with low tack adhesive for temporary protection

    Single sided foam applications include:

    • Water, air, dust and draught sealing
    • Noise, vibration and harshness applications in automotive markets
    • Filter gasketing
    • Vibration isolators in speaker systems and televisions
    • LCD dust seals in electronic appliances
    • Battery pack anti-rattle pads
    • Sound absorption and vibration dampening in white goods
    • Environmental sealing in outdoor lighting
