Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Strips
One of the families of material used in the production of strips include Polyurethane, which can be manufactured in a range of grades, densities and colours, each suited for use in different applications such as sealing, gap filling, packaging, cushioning and insulation.
One popular type is Pink Antistatic Polyurethane foam strips, sometimes called Pink PU foam tape or strip, 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 which can be joined to form rolls of material, and then cut down into strips or coils. Pink Anti static PU foam strips are manufactured on-site by our highly skilled workforce using state of the art machinery, following our customers samples or drawings. We can produce Anti static polyurethane foam strips using one of our many band saws, 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 to ensure that we consistently produce high quality, competitively priced strips.
Our anti static polyurethane foam strips can be cut from rolls or sheets, which are manufactured in a range of standard thicknesses starting at around 1.5mm, these can be supplied coated with a self adhesive backing or laminated to other materials, which can then be cut into strips from 4mm wide and in a choice of pre-cut lengths or in coils in lengths of up to 10meters long.

What Are Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Strips
Foam strips and tapes are often taken for use in a similar way to a gasket, where they are placed to create a seal between uneven surfaces and fill irregularities, sometimes being referred to as sealing strips, gasket strips, gasket tapes or isolation foam strips. Compounds used in the production of Polyurethane foams can be made to include a choice of additives which can include anti-static agents. The addition of this agent produces a material formulated 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.
Why Use Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Strips?
Class O Acoustic Foam Gaskets can be manufactured with a plain or self-adhesive backing to allow for easy installation and to hold the gasket in place, ensuring it remains stable even if the application moves.
Clients can choose from a selection of adhesives including acrylic, scrim and tissue with low, medium or high tack options, depending upon the individual requirements. Acoustic foam gaskets can also be cut from foam laminated to a range of our other materials using spray adhesives.
Advantages Of Using Pink Anti Static Polyurethane Foam Strips
Using strips made from Pink Anti Static Polyurethane foam can offer many advantages to customers and end users, as the material demonstrates 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 joined into rolls, both of which can be further converted into a range of bespoke sized strips or tapes, used to fully secure and protect 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 strips 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 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.
