Fast Recovery PVC Foam Strip

Fast Recovery PVC Foam Strip

Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd, we work with a wide network of material manufacturers, enabling us to offer strips cut from a range of materials in many grades, densities and colours. One popular material type is various grades of PVC Foam, one of which includes Fast Recovery PVC Foam, used to manufacture fast recovery PVC foam strips. 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, from which fast recovery PVC foam strips can be cut. By following customers' dimensions, drawings or samples, we can produce bespoke sized fast recovery PVC foam strips using a choice of bandsaws, strippers, log cutters and even presses depending upon the size and quantity required. 

In-house production allows us to closely oversee the whole production process ensuring we consistently produce high quality, competitively priced strips.  Our Fast Recovery PVC foam strips can be cut from 2 meters or 1-meter x 1-meter sheets or continuous rolls, in widths starting at around 4mm wide, all manufactured with a choice of self-adhesive tapes or foils in lengths of just a few millimetres long to continuous lengths in coil form.

What are Fast Recovery PVC Foam Strips?

Fast recovery PVC foam strips 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 making it perfect for the production of sealing or gasket strips. Fast recovery PVC foam strips are cut from sheets or rolls of material to order, meaning we can supply them to meet your exact specifications in terms of lead time, size and finish.

    Why use Fast Recovery PVC Foam Strips?

    Fast Recovery PVC Foam strips offer all the mechanical properties of the other PVC foam which include UV resistance, low-level water absorption, and dimensional stability and is used to construct seals against air, dust and liquids, but which also offer fast recovery following compression, are lightweight, flame retardant and durable. 

    The Fast Recovery property makes it perfect for use as sealing strips 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.

    Fast Recovery PVC Foam strips can be used for noise and vibration control applications or as a gasket or seal, placed between two surfaces to create a low-pressure seal.

    Advantages of using Fast Recovery PVC Foam Strips

    Using fast recovery PVC foam strips 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 into usable finished products such as fast recovery PVC foam strips where they are utilised in the automotive, construction, electronics, HVAC and stationery industries.
