Fast Recovery PVC Foam Gaskets
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd work with a wide network of reputable material manufacturers and suppliers, enabling us to offer gaskets cut from 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 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 gaskets.
Fast Recovery PVC Foam gaskets are produced in-house, meaning we can manufacture bespoke items to match our customer's samples or drawings, from a simple rectangular picture frame gasket to a more complex shape with cut-outs, notches or bolt holes, whether it’s a small sample batch or a multi-thousand run, we have a machine designed to quickly and accurately produce perfectly formed gaskets every time.
Our onsite facilities house a range of state of the art conversion machinery including a range of presses, CNC machines, slitting machines and log cutters, enabling us to take these sheets and cut them into gaskets of any shape and in most sizes, for very large gaskets, they can be fabricated using multiple sheets and made up in sections and put together in a similar way to pieces of jigsaw puzzles.
What are Fast Recovery PVC Foam Gaskets?
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.
Fast Recovery PVC Foam Gasket can be made in the form of a strip or pad, but are generally an intricately cut shaped piece of material placed between two surfaces to create a low-pressure seal preventing the leakage of liquids or gas and to seal against the intrusion of dust and debris and to reduce excessive movement or vibration between components.

Why use Fast Recovery PVC Foam Gaskets?
Fast Recovery 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 various seals, including gaskets to use the intrusion of air, dust and liquids, but which also offers fast recovery following compression.
PVC Foams are lightweight, flame retardant and durable. The Fast Recovery property makes it perfect for use for moisture sealing 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 Gaskets
Using Fast Recovery PVC Foam as gaskets offer 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 is available in a range of pre-manufactured thicknesses, ready to be shipped or cut down in usable finished products including gaskets where they are utilised in the automotive, construction, electronics, HVAC and stationery industries.
Benefits of using Fast Recovery PVC Foam
- Extra lightweight
- Recovers quickly following compression
