Fast Recovery PVC Foam

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd work with a multitude of reputable material manufacturers and suppliers, enabling us to offer a range of materials in many grades, densities and colours.  One of the more popular materials includes various grades of PVC Foam, one of which includes fast recovery PVC foam. Fast recovery PVC foam is a closed-cell, low-density foam which has a number of excellent mechanical properties, used widely for sealing and insulation.

Fast recovery PVC foam is manufactured and stocked in roll form with a choice of thicknesses between 2mm and 20mm, roll widths of 1 meter or 1.4 meters and rolls lengths of up to 130 meters long depending on the thickness, which can be used to cut down into finished products. As we offer in-house conversion and lamination services, we can not only split materials down to non-standard thicknesses, but we can also laminate layers together and apply a choice of self-adhesives or foil facings.

Our onsite facilities consist of a number of presses, log cutters, strippers, bandsaws and CNC machines from which we can produce a number of fast recovery PVC foam products including gaskets, washers, strips, pads and fabrications.

What is Fast Recovery PVC Foam?

Fast recovery PVC foam is made up of PVC and Polyurea compounds which are combined, heated until it expands and then cured, creating a closed-cell, low-density foam, designed to seal against air, dust and liquids.  Fast recovery PVC foam as the name suggests ‘recovers’ quickly the following compression.

    Why use Fast Recovery PVC Foam?

    Fast recovery PVC foam offers all the mechanical properties of the other PVC Foam which include UV resistance, low-level water absorption, and dimensional stability and is used to construct seals against air, dust and liquids, but it also offers fast recovery following compression.

    Fast recovery PVC foam are lightweight, flame retardant and durable.  The Fast Recovery property makes it perfect for use as moisture seals and within filtration systems, as the material will bounce back to its original shape and size following compression, reducing the time air, dust and moisture has to escape.

    Advantages of using Fast Recovery PVC Foam

    Using fast recovery PVC foam offers countless advantages over other foams including good acoustic, flammability properties and resistance to ozone, UV, rot and mould growth and solvents making them popular for use in sealing, insulation, cushioning and filtration applications such as rooflight seals, glazing pads and refrigeration seals. 

    Fast recovery PVC foam is available in a range of pre-manufactured thicknesses, ready to be shipped or cut down in usable finished products such as gaskets, washers, strips or pads where they are utilised in the automotive, construction, electronics, HVAC and stationery industries.

    Benefits of using Fast Recovery PVC Foam

    • Extra lightweight
    • Fast recovery PVC foam recovers quickly the following compression
    • Can be laminated or split to non-standard thicknesses
    • Highly moisture resistant
    • Fast recovery PVC foam is Flame retardant
    • Fast recovery PVC foam Can be easily cut into a range of products
    • Excellent dust and moisture seal
