Open Cell Foam Material

In general, Open-Cell Foams are more renowned for their cushion and airy feel, rather than their ability to offer an air-tight and water-impermeable seal. At Blaylock Gasket & Packing we offer a large variety of Open-Cell Foams ideal for a variety of applications. These materials may also be ideal for applications where impact, anti-vibration and cushion are mandated.

 If we don’t stock the ideal Open-Cell product you need, we can acquire it quickly, and at a reasonable price from our vendors. The following represent just a few of the many Open-Cell foams we offer.

Open Cell Polyurethane Foam: With resistance to compression set, Urethane materials work where others won’t – gasketing and sealing integrity will be maintained. Urethane materials provide a spring that won’t collapse under repeated pressure – parts won’t loosen after assembly. Components can be protected from impact and vibration. Urethane materials offer long life, are easily fabricated and accept adhesive – for positioning anywhere. Urethane materials are used in a wide range of applications including:

*Gaskets and Seals *Shock isolation *Cushion Pads *Vibration Mounts

*Motor Mounts *RF Shielding (foil clad) *Springs *Spacers

*Tape Substrates

Characteristics:

Temperature Resistance up to 250°F (121°C)

Excellent resistance to compression set

High energy absorption

Chemical resistance

Filter Foam:  This product is true to its name – a porous material ideal for filtering larger particles. Filter Foam is light weight, offers decent cushion and low density. Contact us for your filter foam needs

 

Poron®: This Microcellular Urethane foams product from the Rogers Corporation is popular for a number of applications. Even though this material is open-cell, it can provide a water-tight seal, making it a good choice in electronics, military, the oil patch and other gasketing arenas.
