Flame Retardant Plastazote Seals
Polyethylene foams seals can be supplied and converted in a range of grades by Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd, as our network of suppliers enables us to offer seals (such as our flame retardant plastazote foam seals) produced from various types of Polyethylene (PE) foam, including Flame Retardant Polyethylene, in densities ranging from 15kg to 70kg (referred to as LD15FR, LD33FR, LD45FR, LD60FR or LD70FR respectively).
Flame retardant plastazote 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 foam is manufactured and stocked in block form, which we can split into sheets and rolls of various thicknesses starting from as little as 1.5mm, from which flame retardant plastazote foam seals, gaskets, washers and strips can be cut, alternatively plastazote seals can be extruded into certain profiles which are all designed for the purpose of preventing leaks or the ingress of air, fluids and gas.
All our flame retardant plastazote foam sealsare made to order and are produced by following samples or drawings provided by customers to ensure the final product perfectly fits the application. As each form of Plastazote seal needs to be manufactured using a different process, ASG have invested heavily in various machinery allowing us to offer plastazote foam seals in both high and low volumes at competitive prices

What Are Flame Retardant Plastazote Foam Seals?
Flame retardant plastazote foam seals are devices that are used to join surfaces together, acting as a separator or a barrier to prevent liquids, particles or gases escaping or penetrating the application. ‘Seal’ is a generic term for a group of products often taking the form of cut gaskets, strips, washers, extruded or moulded profiles and edge trims.
Plastazote is a cross-linked, closed cell type of polyethylene foam, man- made using crude oil into which nitrogen is blown and the foam is expanded, 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 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 seal production.
Why Use Flame Retardant Plastazote Foam Seals?
Flame Retardant plastazotes offer all the 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, cut or pressed into even the most intricately shaped seal.
Flame Retardant plastazote offers excellent compression following compression and impact, resistance to a range of chemicals, solvents, acids, alkalies and some oils, 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 for sealing in many ‘clean’ applications such as food, pharmaceutical and science.
Flame retardant plastazote foam seals can be used to fill gaps and irregularities between uneven surfaces, to provide a solution to unwanted rattles, noise, vibrations, to seal against air, gas, dust and liquids, used to cushion between moving parts to reduce friction and damage to components and equipment and as surface protection.
Benefits Of Using Flame Retardant Plastazote Foam
- Flame retardant plastazote foam seals are Lightweight & durable
- Good impact and shock absorbing properties
- Water repellent and buoyant
- Plastazote foam seals have excellent chemical, oils, acids, alkalis and solvent resistance
- Good thermal insulation
- Non-toxic and low odour
- Flame and Heat resistant
Advantages Of Using Flame Retardant Plastazote Foam Seals
Seals manufactured using flame retardant Plastazote foam offer users countless advantages and are highly utilised in numerous industries and applications, 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 foam seals 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 as the material has excellent recovery from repetitive impact. Flame retardant plastazote foam seals offer great thermal properties including high levels of vibration, shock absorption, heat and flame resistance for use within the automotive, construction and aviation industries.
