Silicone Sponge is an excellent material for uses requiring a soft, compressible material and particularly suited for high temperature applications. There is a full range of standard colours available and J-Flex has the capability to colour match to customer requirements. The sponge is predominately-closed cell with low water absorption.
Sponge sheeting is available in standard rolls 1m wide; other widths can be produced upon request. Our sponge sheetings can also be supplied complete with adhesive backing and slit into strips or punched to produce gaskets to your specific dimensional requirements.
All J-Flex sheet products can be supplied with or without our high temperature adhesive backing.
J-Flex enjoys an industry wide reputation as the market leader for specialist sheet rubber products including silicone sponge sheets.
This applies to the vast range of silicone sponge sheetings offered EX-STOCK – which includes the following….
Red Closed Cell Silicone Sponge Medium Density is ideal for gasket applications that require a soft
‘HTM’ Thermally Conductive Silicone Sponge is great for gaskets & pads where good heat transfer is required.
Hi-Recovery Expanded Closed Cell Silicone Sponge is ideal when better compression recovery than standard roll material is required.
Silicone Sponge Commercial Sheet Grade is a good industry standard product popular for most gasket; strip & joint applications.
Metal Detectable Silicone Sponge is ideal for gasketing & door seals used in sensitive food processing areas.
If any part of this material falls into a food product, this pollution can be detected by metal detectable equipment. Don’t take any risks by fitting traditional sponge materials because they are cheap. They also have low levels of conductivity & are very often missed by the strongest detection systems. So don’t compromise – fit J-Flex Metal Detectable Products.
‘Food Safe’ is a medium density closed cell Silicone Sponge, particularly suited to the food and beverage industries, where a soft compressible gasket material with excellent thermal stability is required.
Independently tested, ‘Food Safe’, complies with FDA extraction requirements for aqueous and fatty food, as required under CFR 21 177.2600. Goods intended for repeated use.
Available in Light Blue (food industry colour) or White, Food Safe can be supplied in flat sheet or as extruded seals.
