Flame Retardent Plastazote Foam Pads

Advanced Seals & Gaskets offer a number of products cut using various grades of polyethylene, sourced from a network of suppliers enabling us to offer products such as pads (including flame retardant plastazote foam pads) using different types of Polyethylene (PE) foam, including Flame Retardant Plastazote, in densities ranging from 15kg to 70kg (referred to as LD15FR, LD33FR, LD45FR, LD60FR or LD70FR respectively).

This material is a closed cell, cross-linked polyethylene foam which is incredibly lightweight, and free from chemical agents which enables customers to use this material in highly sensitive environments where flame and heat resistance is crucial.

Flame Retardant Plastazote PE foam is manufactured and stocked in block form, which using in-house state of the art machinery we can split down in order to produce sheets or rolls in various thicknesses starting from as little as 1.5mm, from which flame retardant plastazote foam pads can be cut.

Our plastazote foam pads are produced on-site using drawings or measurements provided by our customers, with whom we work closely to ensure the final product is to their exact specification.

Depending upon the size and quantity of flame retardant plastazote foam pads required, one of many presses, bandsaws or CNC machines can be used to manufacture the final product, from one off samples to multiple batch runs, which can be supplied as loosely cut parts, or kiss-cut on rolls where a high quantity is required or for use on fast paced assembly lines.

    What Are Flame Retardant Plastazote Foam Pads?

    Flame Retardant Plastazote foams are just one of many cross-linked, closed cell polyethylene materials, which is man- made using crude oil into which nitrogen is blown and the foam is expanded giving the cellular structure. Flame Retardant plastazote is produced using the same compound as standard plastazote, but with the addition of flame retardant additives.

    When the plastazote foam is compressed each nitrogen filled cell acts like a squashed balloon, causing the foam to bounce back to its original shape, the closed cell structure of plastazote means it is impenetrable to air and moisture and will not allow liquids to pass through or be absorbed making it an excellent choice for cutting into flame retardant plastazote foam pads for sealing or insulating applications.

    Flame retardant plastazote foam pads are cut from rolls or sheets of material and often used in the same way as a gasket, whereby they are used to create a seal between uneven surfaces and fill irregularities. Our pads can be produced as squares or rectangles with the option of radius corners, and also as circular or oval shaped pads or ‘discs’, in a range of thicknesses.

    Manufacturing plastazote foam pads in-house even means we can supply them in a plain or self adhesive backed finish and even laminate multiple types of material together to create bespoke and unique variations.

    Why Use Flame Retardant Plastazote Foam Pads?

    Customers often use flame retardant plastazote PE foam as they offer all the many excellent properties of a standard plastazote, but formulated with flame retardant additives mixed into the compound, often used as an alternative to more expensive materials such as EPDM or Neoprene sponge.

    Plastazote foams can be easily split from blocks or ‘buns’, therefore our on-site facilities are able to produce flame retardant plastazote foam pads in bespoke widths and lengths using one of many pieces of machinery which include presses, bandsaws and an oscillating knife.

    Flame Retardant plastazote offers excellent compression following compression and impact, resistance to a range of chemicals, solvents, acids, alkalies, some oils, heat and flame, meaning it can be utilised in many applications. All Plastazote materials are lightweight and free from chemical agents, therefore the gaskets are safe to use in many ‘clean’ applications such as food, pharmaceutical and science.

    Flame retardant plastazote foam pads can be used to fill gaps and irregularities between uneven surfaces, provide a solution to unwanted rattles, noise, vibrations, to seal against air, gas, dust and liquids, and can also be used to cushion between moving parts to reduce friction and damage to components and equipment.

    Benefits Of Using Flame Retardant Plastazote Foam

    • Flame retardant plastazote foam pads are lightweight & durable
    • Good impact and shock absorbing properties
    • Water repellent and buoyant
    • Excellent chemical, oils, acids, alkalis and solvent resistance
    • Flame retardant plastazote foam pads have Good thermal insulation
    • Non-toxic and low odour
    • Flame and Heat resistant

    Advantages Of Using Flame Retardant Plastazote Foam Pads

    Using flame retardant plastazote foam pads offers users a number of advantages and therefore the material can be found utilised in numerous industries and applications.

    As these plastazote foam pads are produced in-house, we are able to make them in bespoke sizes to meet our customers requirements. Flame Retardant Plastazote foam is a man-made material, designed to suit a range of requirements and is available in a choice of densities.

    Flame retardant plastazote foams are odourless, lightweight, buoyant, non-toxic and offer resistance to many oils, solvents, acids, alkalis, heat and flame. It’s closed cell surface and structure does not allow the absorption of liquids and is easy to keep clean, as well as being weatherproof and UV stable.

    Flame retardant plastazote foams are usually the preferred choice for the production of seals or components which require excellent recovery from repetitive impact. Flame retardant plastazote products offer great thermal properties including high levels of vibration, shock absorption, heat and flame resistance for use within the automotive, construction and aviation industries.
