APPLICATIONS & MARKETS
Gaskets & seals; thermal & acoustic insulation; cushioning; shock absorption; NVH; moisture seal; flotation; construction; pipe wrap; UL requirements; athletic mats; automotive; appliance; and more.
Fostek Corporation has acquired the Foam Rubber Division of Uniseal, Inc.
In 2010, Fostek™ added this line of unique engineered foams to its product offerings. This includes the addition of EPDM and Nitrile/ Vinyl super soft foams that have very low Compression Deflections beginning as low 2 kPa (max.).
These super soft, conformable foams are available in CUSTOM PROFILE shapes as well as in SHEET/ROLL form. In addition, acrylic; rubber and other pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) are applied to some of these products to meet customers’ specifications. This includes butyl tape PSA to deliver high adhesion performance.
The Fostek™ family of engineered foams includes closed-cell and super-soft foam products that meet automotive specifications of major OEMs, including Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota, and others. It is important to note that many automotive applications are moving away from “cast PVC” foams that may have been used for their very soft, conformable mechanical properties. Certain manufacturers are replacing those products with EPDM foams to avoid using “cast PVC” foams and to meet worldwide material standards. Windshield seals; acoustic control (NVH & “squeak and rattle”; gaskets; door water shields or rain shields that provide acoustic benefits as well as moisture barrier properties; pillar stuffers; HVAC seals/gaskets; and other unique applications that require a “patch” to seal off air, sound, moisture, or dust.
Also, certain UL specifications are met for the appliance, electrical and building industries. Included are HVAC applications that utilize engineered polymeric foams (air conditioners, chillers, refrigerators, etc.).
