What are Acoustic Foam Gaskets?
Gaskets are a ring, sheet or cut shape substance or material used to act as a seal between surfaces. The purposes for gaskets of this type are to prevent leakages of liquid or gas, keep joints air-tight and prevent the intrusion of damaging debris such as dust.
Acoustic foam is an open cell, lightweight, class O fire rated polyurethane material that is primarily used in soundproofing applications such as recording studios, and It is a non-fibrous foam meaning the gaskets can be used within airflow systems as the material doesn’t shred, dust or migrate when exposed to high velocity airflow.
Acoustic Foam is resistant to most fungus, mildew and bacteria growth as it contains anti-fungal agents which makes it a popular choice for use within the air conditioning and duct-work systems.
Self-Adhesive Acoustic Foam Gaskets
Class O Acoustic Foam Gaskets can be manufactured with a plain or self-adhesive backing to allow for easy installation and to hold the gasket in place, ensuring it remains stable even if the application moves.
Clients can choose from a selection of adhesives including acrylic, scrim and tissue with low, medium or high tack options, depending upon the individual requirements. Acoustic foam gaskets can also be cut from foam laminated to a range of our other materials using spray adhesives.
Why use Acoustic foam gaskets?
There are various ways in which our customers utilize acoustic foam gaskets, these include sound absorption. Due to its excellent sound dampening properties, acoustic foam gaskets are often used for fittings within marine applications, recording studios, acoustic/compressor or generator enclosures, etc.
Many industries also utilize acoustic foam gaskets for insulation, vibration control and cushioning due to the materials exceptional fire resistance properties (Surface Spread of Flame Class 1 BS 476 part 7 and Building Regulations 1991 (fire safety) Class 0 BS 476 part 6&7).
These include heating & ventilation, construction, automotive, and electrical equipment and appliance manufacturing.

Advantages of Using Acoustic Foam Gaskets
Acoustic foam gaskets hold various advantageous properties that are highly utilizable in a variety of industries.
The greatest advantage of using acoustic foam gaskets is the exceptional noise dampening capabilities of the material. As acoustic foam is an open cell material it is highly effective at absorbing sounds as well as cushioning and padding.
Acoustic foam gaskets commonly used as the material performs multiple functions at the same time, while the acoustic foam gasket is applied for cushioning the material will also absorb sound waves dampening the noise.
