Fast Recovery PVC Foam Seals

Fast Recovery PVC Foam Seals

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd work with a wide network of material manufacturers, enabling us to offer a vast range of high-quality sponge and solid silicone materials which can be used as a solution to your sealing requirements, one of which includes Fast Recovery PVC Foam. 

Fast Recovery PVC Foam seals are available in the form of gaskets, washers, o-rings and extrusions, all designed to prevent air, fluid and gas leaks or the intrusion of dust and debris. 

All our Fast Recovery PVC Foam seals are made to order and available in almost any given size, shape or format, produced by using customers samples or drawings, ensuring the final product perfectly fits the application. 

As each form of the seal is produced using a different process, ASG has invested heavily in various types of machinery, allowing us to offer high and low volume seals for use within many different industries.

What are Fast Recovery PVC Foam Seals?

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 seals are a device or substrate that is used to join surfaces together to either act as a separator or a body to prevent liquids, solids or gases from escaping or penetrating the seal.  

Our Fast Recovery PVC Foam seals can take the form of cut gaskets, strips, washers, extruded profiles and cord, all manufactured using the same closed cell sponge which can be compressed, which in turn ‘hardens’ the material to create a secure seal, many of which can be supplied with a choice of self-adhesives which assists with holding the seal in situ.

    Why use Fast Recovery PVC Foam Seals?

    Our Fast Recovery PVC Foam seals are available in many different forms, but they all possess the same 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, but which also offers fast recovery following compression, 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 Seals

    Fast Recovery PVC Foam seals are produced using a premium grade material, 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 is available in a range of pre-manufactured thicknesses, ready to be shipped or cut down in usable finished sealing products such as gaskets, washers, strips or pads where they are utilised in the automotive, construction, electronics and HVAC industries.
