Compression Deflection

What does compression deflection mean?

Compression deflection is the measure of the compressive strength of a cellular product. It is measured by the force required to compress a material. For example, to 25% of its original thickness. It can be expressed in lb/in² (pounds per square inch) or kPa (Kilopascal). This will help determine the optimum performance of a seal or gasket.
