Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Seals
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of sealing components, offering a choice of hundreds of materials, including Polyurethane foams available in a number of grades and colours, each suited for different applications and environments.
One type of sealing material offered is Pink Antistatic Polyurethane foam, sometimes called Pink PU foam, anti-static PU or pink anti-static packaging foam, recognisable by its bright colour and 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 and cut into seals. Anti-static polyurethane foam seals are available in the form of gaskets, washers and some extrusions such as tubes and cords, all designed to prevent dust, air, or fluid ingress.
All our polyurethane foam seals are made to order and available in almost any given size, shape or format, produced by using customers' samples or drawings as a guide, ensuring the final product perfectly fits the application. As each form of seal is manufactured using a different process, ASG have invested heavily in various machinery, allowing us to offer cost effective high and low volume seals for use within many applications and industries.

What Are Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Seals
Polyurethane foams can be made into a number of seals, with Pink Anti-static PU foam formulated to include an anti-static agent, which creates a material designed for packaging and 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 also 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 foam seals are a device or substrate that are used to join surfaces together, act as a separator or a body to prevent liquids, solids or gases escaping or penetrating the seal. Polyurethane foam seals can take the form of cut gaskets, strips, washers, extruded profiles and cord, many of which can be supplied with a choice of self-adhesives which assists with holding the seal in situ.
Why Use Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Seals?
Pink Anti-static Polyurethane foam seals are perfect for use when transporting fragile or expensive products where protective packaging is vital in protecting the encased goods from damage. During handling and transportation of goods, static charges build up caused by friction, human handling or other items moving around in the box.
Pink Anti-static PU foam seals are useful for placing within electronic components, 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 Pink Anti-static foam seals 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, and therefore can be converted into seals of virtually any shape or size.
Advantages Of Using Pink Anti Static Polyurethane Foam Seals
Using Pink Anti Static Polyurethane foam seals can offer many advantages to customers and end-users, offering a number of desirable properties 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 can be cut down in perfectly fitting seals 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.
Applications in which anti static polyurethane foam seals can be used 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 oten supplied in pairs to offer support and cushioning on the top and bottom of package. Convoluted Packaging PU foam is also available in a Pink Antistatic grade.
