PVC Foam Washers
Advanced Seals & Gaskets are market leaders in producing high-quality washers using the latest technology and excellent in-house conversion facilities. Producing the washers in-house ensures that high standards are maintained, in turn producing high-quality gaskets consistently. PVC Foam gaskets are produced using drawings or dimensions provided by our customers, ensuring the final product is produced to their exact specification. Depending on the size and quantity of the washers required, our production team will select from our range of atoms, autos, travelling head, kiss cut pressing machines or for very large or thick washers, we can programme our CNC (oscillating knife) to produce the washers in the most efficient way to keep lead times down. PVC foam is stocked in a range of grades, colours and densities, which can be laminated to other materials or coated with a sale-adhesive backing prior to the washers being cut.
What are PVC Foam Washers?
PVC Foam (Polyvinyl Chloride) is a lightweight material, available in a range of grades and colours, each with its own set of unique properties and can be converted into a range of products including washers. Washers are a flat ring (comprising of an Outer Diameter (OD), Internal Diameter (ID) and the thickness) cut from a sheet or roll of material, which is placed between two surfaces creating a level surface, acting as a spacer or between nuts, bolts and other fastenings to spread the pressure when tightened.
Why use PVC Foam Washers?
There are many ways to utilise PVC foam washers as the material holds various desirable properties such as creating a tight seal against dust, air, water, chemicals and outdoor elements such as wind, rain and sunlight, along with thermal insulation and vibration and sound absorption. We have many customers that require PVC foam washers in industries such as automotive, construction, HVAC, heating, marine and electronics. These industries use PVC foam washers for boating seals, window installations, protection, door seals, dust and light seals.
