EPDM/Neoprene sponges

These co-polymer sponges seek to combine the best properties of each constituent material.


Pure neoprene is more expensive than the blend version. Pure EPDM has a distinct odour but is the least costly With a working temperature range of -40° to +80°C. EPDM/Neoprene blend gives the best of both worlds in terms of performance and price.


Available in sheets, blocks, rolls or as finished components.


• Ozone & UV Resistant

• CFC & HCFC Free

• UL94 Spec


Sponge & Foam

EPDM sponges


Closed cell EPDM (Ethylene, Propylene, Diene, Monomer) sponge is used generally for gaskets, sealing and in electrical engineering.

This high-performance synthetic rubber sponge excels in demanding environmental conditions. It exhibits both high and low temperature performance (-50° to 110°C) and exceptional UV and ozone resistance.

These characteristics make it ideally suited for outdoor, construction and automotive applications.


Available in sheets, blocks, rolls or as finished components, EPDM sponge rubber comes in a range of densities.


• Good electrical resistivity

• Resistant to polar solvents

• Outstanding low temperature flexibility

•Good compression set resistance


Neoprene sponges


Neoprene is a versatile synthetic rubber, similar to natural rubber in terms of tensile strength, resilience and abrasion resistance, but is more able to withstand direct sunlight, has better weathering resistance and a wider working temperature range (-20° to +110°C).

Neoprene sponges have good resistance to oils, while resistance to petrol & other hydrocarbons is moderate. Resistance to water is not as good as natural rubber.


Available in sheets, blocks, rolls or as finished components, Neoprene sponge rubber comes in a range of densities and hardness, with or without flame retardant properties.


• Resists degradation from sun, ozone and weather

• Resists oils and many chemicals

• Wide working temperature range

• Displays outstanding durability

• Resistant to damage caused by flexing and twisting


Polyethylene foams


The most common type of plastic foam, available in a wide selection of colours, densities and stiffness.

PE foam can be blown chemically or physically expanded by the introduction of a gas such as Nitrogen.

These foams can be crosslinked, a process that enhances durability and enables them to be thermoformed.
