PVC Foam Sheets
Sheets of foam are just one of many products stocked and supplied by Advanced Seals & Gaskets, who are market leaders in the conversion and supply of high quality materials , including various grades of PVC foam. PVC foams are usually manufactured in continuous rolls which can be split down using our state of the art splitting machines.
As we offer a range of on-site conversion services, not only are we able to split down PVC foam sheets in thicknesses starting at just 1.5mm, as well as being able to cut the rolls down to bespoke sized sheets in 1 meter or 2 meter lengths. These sheets can be supplied plain or coated with a one of many foils or self adhesives, and even laminated to other materials to produce composite sheets.

What Are PVC Foam Sheets?
PVC foam sheets (Polyvinyl Chloride) are lightweight, available in a range of grades and colours - details of which are listed below, each offering its own unique properties. PVC Foams are made up of PVC and Polyurea compounds, which are mixed and heated to the point of expansion and then cured to produce a foam material.
The density of the material is determined by the timings of the expansion and curing processes. This manufacturing process creates continuous lengths of closed cell, low density foam which can be cut down into sheets and small components perfect for sealing against air, dust and liquids. PVC foam sheets are available in 2 meters or 1 meter lengths, which are popular as they give the customer and end user the flexibility to be able to cut their own strips, pads, gaskets or washers to order as and when required.
Why Use PVC Foam Sheets?
There are many ways by which PVC foam sheets and components can be utilized, as the material holds various desirable properties such as the ability to create a tight seal against dust, air, water, chemicals and outdoor elements such as wind, rain and sunlight, along with thermal insulation and vibration and sound absorption.
We have many customers that require PVC foam products, like PVC foam sheets, within industries such as automotive, construction, HVAC, heating, marine and electronics. These industries use PVC foam parts for use as boating seals, window installations, protection, door seals, dust and light seals.
PVC Foams are manufactured in a variety of densities and colours, each suited to different levels of compression for use as seals in many applications and environments.
Benefits Of Using PVC Foam
As ASG have a network of high quality material manufacturers and suppliers, we are able to offer PVC foam rolls in a range of grades, each with own set of unique properties and characteristics, these include:
Soft PVC Foam - is a low density material, low density, closed cell foam with a density of around 90-100Kg/m3, which offers a working temperature range of -30ºC / + 70ºC, excellent UV resistance and sealing properties against air, dust and liquids - available in thicknesses of 2mm to 20mm as standard.
Medium PVC Foam - is a mid density foam with a density of around 140-170 Kg/m3, offering excellent UV resistance and sealing properties against air, dust and liquids, low level water absorption, dimensional stability, a working temperature range of -30ºC / + 60ºC - available in thicknesses of 2mm to 20mm.
Firm PVC Foam - is a higher density foam of around 200-220Kg/m3. This grade also offers UV resistance, sealing properties against air, dust and liquids, low levels of water absorption and a temperature range of -30/+80°C - available in thicknesses of between 2 and 8mm.
Fast Recovery - this low density, closed cell foam has an average density of 100-120 Kg/m3 and as the name suggests - recovers quickly (returns to it original size and shape) following compression. Fast Recovery foam offers excellent sealing properties against air, dust and liquids, UV resistance a temperature range of -30ºC / + 60ºC - available in thicknesses of 2mm to 20mm.
Slow Recovery - also a closed cell, low density foam, with an average density of 100-125 Kg/m3 and as offers a slower recovery following compression in compassion to other PVC foams. As with all PVC foams, this one also offers UV resistance, excellent sealing capabilities against liquids, dust and air, has a temperature range of -30ºC / + 60ºC - available in thicknesses fromm 2mm to 20mm as standard.

Advantages Of Using PVC Foam Sheets
Using sheets of PVC Foam can offer countless advantages over other foams including good anti-vibration, acoustic and flammability properties, as well as resistance to ozone, UV, rot and mould growth and solvents making them popular for use in the production of components for sealing, insulation, cushioning and filtration applications such as rooflight seals, glazing pads and refrigeration seals.
The different grades available offer features such as varying levels of recovery, working temperature ranges and densities, ensuring the perfect, reliable seal is formed for different environments. PVC foam sheets are available in a range of pre-manufactured thicknesses, ready to be shipped or cut down into sheets and usable finished products such as gaskets, washers, strips or pads where they are utilised in the automotive, construction, electronics, HVAC and stationery industries.
Using sheets of PVC foam allows for smaller quantities of material to be taken, which reduces both waste and cost for the customers.
