Fruit Protection 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 Fruit Protection PVC Foam, sometimes also called Fruit Selection of dual-density foam.
Fruit Protection is a closed-cell, dual-density foam, featuring a high density and hard-wearing skin on one side, which has a number of excellent mechanical properties, used widely for linings, insulation, sealing and manufacturing conveyor belts. Fruit Selection PVC Foam is manufactured and stocked in roll form with a choice of thicknesses between 5.5mm and 7.5mm, in roll lengths of 10 meters, which can be cut down into finished products.
As we offer in-house conversion and lamination services, we can not only split PVC materials down to non-standard thicknesses, 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 PVC Foam products including gaskets, washers, strips, pads and fabrications.
What is Fruit Selection PVC Foam?
Fruit Selection PVC Foam is made up of PVC and Polyurea compounds which are combined, heated until it expands and then cured, creating a closed-cell, dual-density foam with a smooth, hard-wearing skin on one face, designed to seal against air, dust and liquids and to be easy to clean.

Why use Fruit Selection PVC Foam?
Fruit Selection PVC Foam offers all the mechanical properties of the other PVC Foam which include UV resistance, low-level water absorption, dimensional stability and is used to construct seals against air, dust and liquids, gaskets, vehicle and saddle linings.
One of the benefits of using Fruit Selection PVC Foam is the dual-density, which makes the material perfect for use as conveyor belting or production line surface coverings for use with softer products such as fruit and veg, whereby the harder skin offers resistance to wear and abrasion, and the softer foam allows for product sorting without causing damage, being closed-cell and moisture impermeable it is easy to keep clean.
Advantages of using Fruit Selection PVC Foam
Using Fruit Selection 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 packaging applications, including glazing pads, conveyor belting, packaging, saddle manufacturing and automotive interiors.
The dual-density and surface of the material allow the material to be used in very robust and highly abrasive applications as well as for those where delicate handling is required such as for sorting and packing soft fruit or veg. Fruit Selection PVC is available in a range of pre-manufactured thicknesses, ready to be shipped or cut down into 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 Fruit Selection PVC Foam
- Dual Density - for use in a broader range of applications
- Is both hardwearing and compressible
- Can be laminated or split to non-standard thicknesses
- Highly moisture resistant
- Flame retardant
- Can be easily cut into a range of products
- Excellent dust and moisture seal
