EPDM Open Cell Sponge & Semi Closed Cell EPDM

Open cell EPDM Sponge has been formulated to suit applications where sealing or cushioning is required for irregular depths or non-uniform areas.

The material is very flexible and soft and has excellent properties for recovery without deformation when released after compression.

EPDM Open Cell Sponge Capabilities

It has similar performance characteristics to closed cell EPDM in terms of durability and resistance to UV, Ozone and external weathering.

Open cell EPDM Sponge provides good temperature resistance in hot or cold environments. It also has good thermal properties in both extremes of temperature.

Open cell EPDM Sponge is also known as semi-closed Cell EPDM Sponge

Semi-closed EPDM Cell Sponge or Open cell EPDM Cell Sponge requires compression of up to 80% to create an Air-tight seal.

The open cell structure of this material provides flexibility and adaptability for excellent sealing capabilities which are comparable to closed cell EPDM Sponge when compressed to form an Air-tight seal.

This unique material can be laminated with pressure sensitive to assist in securing placement during application to seal against water, dust, wind, noise and heat.

AL800 Open Cell EPDM Sponge/Semi-Closed EPDM Sponge

Open Cell EPDM Sponge is also known as Semi-Closed EPDM Sponge. The semi-closed structure of AL800 combines the flexibility of open cell types with the excellent sealing capabilities of closed cell types (after compression). This unique foam can be laminated with rubber resin or acrylic based adhesive tape to assist in securing placement and provide sealing in complex gaps against water, wind, dust, noise and heat.

EPDM Open Cell Sponge/Semi-Closed EPDM Sponge Specifications

The main features of open cell EPDM Sponge are;

  • Open Cell Structure/Semi-Closed Cell structure
  • Super soft and conformable
  • Low Compression Load
