Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Gaskets
ASG are recognised as one of the leading gasket manufacturers and suppliers using many different materials including various Polyurethane foams in a number of grades and colours, each suited for use in different applications and environments.
One type of PU we can convert is Pink Antistatic Polyurethane foam, sometimes called Pink PU foam, anti-static PU or pink anti-static packaging foam, recognisable by its bright colour, used to protect static sensitive devices.
Pink Anti Static Polyurethane foam is manufactured in jumbo blocks which can be split down into sheets of virtually any thickness from which gaskets can be cut or pressed. Our pink anti static polyurethane foam gaskets are produced in-house by our expertly trained workforce using state of the art machinery and the highest quality materials. We can manufacture bespoke items to match our customers specifications, using samples or drawings, from a simple rectangular picture frame gasket, to a more complex shape with holes and cut-outs.
Whether it’s a small sample batch or a multi-thousand run, we have a machine to quickly and accurately produce perfectly formed gaskets in a range of sizes, these include a number of presses and CNC machines, supplied plain or coated with a choice of finishes including foils and choice of self adhesives.

What Are Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Gaskets
When formulating raw material compounds for polyurethane, a number of additives which include anti-static agents can be added, which in turn results in a material designed for use as packaging, transporting circuit boards, hard drives and other sensitive electronic equipment.
Pink Anti-static polyurethane foam is an open cell foam which is perfect for packing ESD (electrostatic discharge) sensitive components where it serves as protection from physical damage caused by impact or abrasion, but also providing a proactive shield against static discharge. Pink Anti-static PU is dyed pink during the manufacturing process, which enables it to be easily identified, ensuring the incorrect material is not used for packaging sensitive products.
Pink Anti static PU gaskets can be used to convert into a number of smaller components including gaskets, an intricately cut shaped piece of material, sometimes also taken in the form of a pad, washer or strip which is placed between two surfaces to create a seal, provide cushioning or insulation.
Why Use Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Gaskets?
Pink anti-static polyurethane foam gaskets can be used to protect procutes during handling and transportation, where static charges build up caused by friction, human handling or the movement of other items in the box.
Pink Anti-static Polyurethane foams are used for packaging and transporting not only fragile or delicate goods, but also items which are electrical and static sensitive which could become unusable if shipped using inadequate packaging.
Customers choose to have their gaskets manufactured using Pink Anti-static foam for a number of reasons, mainly it’s static-dissipative properties, but also because of the materials excellent ability to provide cushioning and shock or vibration absorption. Pink Anti-static foam sheets and products are cut down from master blocks or buns from which bespoke shape and sized gaskets can be cut and pressed which provide a perfect fit around products reducing any unwanted movement during transit.
Advantages Of Using Pink Anti Static Polyurethane Foam Gaskets
Pink Anti Static Polyurethane foam gaskets can offer many advantages to customers and end users, offering a number of desirable properties and characteristics including softness, excellent strength, shock absorbency and flexibility.
Pink Anti-static polyurethane foam is manufactured in master blocks, which can be split down into sheets and converted into gaskets many thicknesses and bespoke shapes and sizes, which in turn creates perfectly fitting profiles and case inserts in order to fully secure and protect the products from movement, impact and most importantly damage from static charge, which in return saves customers and end-users money on having to replace damaged products.
Some of the applications in which anti static polyurethane foam gaskets can be found include packaging electrical and surgical equipment, cameras, circuit boards, HVAC and automotive insulation, etc.
Benefits Of Using Pink Anti-Static Foam
- Soft material offers cushion and protection of abrasion and impact
- Available in different forms to perfectly fit around awkward shaped objects
- Saves money - as protects goods from physical and static damage
- Pink in colour so easily recognisable
- Can be cut down to size to provide the perfectly fitting case insert
Different Types of Packaging Foam Available
Most foams can be used for packaging as they will absorb impact, however certain foams are produced with unique features for transporting or storing items safely. Some of the other more popular packaging foams include:
Polyurethane (PU) slabs - A soft protective open-cell foam used to absorb shock, which will quickly recover following any impact or compression. This type of packaging foam is the same material as the convoluted type, still offering protection from scuffs and dents - but without the peaks.
Polyethylene (PE) - A closed cell foam which is more rigid and higher in density making it great for protecting against vibration and shock, being closed cell its ideal for packing items which need to be protected from moisture.
Pick & Pluck - Polyurethane and Polyethylene foams are available in standard, anti-static or static dissipative grades, which are used for transporting electronic products. These foams not only protect items from physical damage, but also from damage which could be caused by static charge.
Convoluted ‘Eggbox’ packaging Polyurethane - this foam is the same material as the PU slabs and the pick & pluck packaging foams, recognised by its convoluted surface consisting of peaks and troughs and if often supplied in pairs to offer support and cushioning on the top and bottom of the package. Convoluted Packaging PU foam is also available in a Pink Antistatic grade.
