Intec Foams are specialists in the conversion and supply of Neoprene Foam Sponge Rubber. A versatile foam rubber used in many applications
There are several different densities of Neoprene Foam Rubber which are manufactured in raw block form or in rolls. The flexibility of Neoprene means that the foams are suitable for a wide variety of applications requiring a rubber type foam which has good resistance and/or characteristics for different liquids. It is most widely known for its use in sports clothing and equipment.
With our vast experience and knowledge of Neoprene Sponge Rubber, we can help you in the selection of the correct grade and design of a finished foam product to keep unit costs down, and to help in keeping your own labour costs down in assembly.
Neoprene Foam Usage
- Oil Seals
- Weather Stripping
- Vent and Air Conditioning Seals.
- Wet Suits
- Seals & Gaskets
- Equestrian Products
- Medical and Sports Support Bandages
- Neoprene sponge cord (different diameters available) for seals
Neoprene Foam Properties
- Good Heat Resistance
- Temperature range: Generally -20 to + 100°C, but some higher temperature grades are available
- Good for use in sea water, acids/alkalis, fats & grease, oil/ fuel resistance
- Excellent Fire Retardant capabilities. FMVSS302, UL94 HF1, V0, BS 476 Class O
Neoprene Foam Grades
120 – 160 Kg/m3, 40-45 Shore 00
170Kg/m3, 45-55 Shore 00
170Kg/m3, 50-60 Shore 00
Neoprene Foam Rubber Conversion
- CNC Die cutting to create 2 dimensional shapes in the most economical way.
- Log Cutting to create plain or self adhesive coils
- Kiss Cutting – a method to produce self adhesive products; which are cut and left on the release liner to enable easy manual release of parts
Neoprene EPDM SPonge Rubber Blend
Neoprene EPDM are co-polymers of Neoprene and EPDM closed cell sponge, which offer the properties of both grades of materials. The blend ratio’s dictate the properties to a certain extent. Such foams are becoming increasingly the predominant grades, replacing both pure Neoprene and EPDM as a good General Purpose grade of sponge rubber.
Used where low UV/Ozone resistance is required but with a degree of Fuel, Oil and chemical resistance
Flame Retardant classification to UL94 HF 1 is available. The foams can be supplied with or without a self adhesive backing and can be cut into coils for sealing tapes.
