The one-stop source for rubber products
At Technical Foam Services, we don't see ourselves as mere suppliers. We work in partnership with our customers to develop and produce complete solutions to meet their exact needs.
As a result, some time ago we came to realise that many of our foam conversion clients required solutions that combine the performance properties of both foam and rubber in one or more products.
With our deep understanding of the way in which foam and rubber react to different processes, it was therefore a logical step for us to also offer a wide range of rubber based materials to complement our foam ranges.
As a result, Technical Foam Services offers a reliable and expert single source for an expansive selection of both foam and highly specialist grades of rubber, all of which we hold in stock, including:
- Neoprene rubber (including flame-retardant)
- EPDM (including white EPDM rubber)
- Silicone rubber
Materials engineered to perform
While we may have originally introduced rubber products to complement our foam goods, we adopt the same professional approach to this sector as we do across our entire business, providing the widest choice of the highest quality materials possible; engineered to meet the toughest specifications.
We supply both closed and open cell rubber materials in a vast range of densities, spanning 60kg/m³ up to 300kg/m³ and in thicknesses from as thin as 0.5mm, right through to 75mm.
As with our foam converting facilities, when it comes to the design, development and production of rubber products and materials, our engineering capability is second to none.
This allows us to fabricate and cut rubber materials to your exact design and specifications, as well as enabling us to add extra elements, such as acrylic and resin self-adhesive backing, with additional features, such as high tack, temperature resistant and perm-peel; which can be re-positioned after initial placement.
A wide array of applications
With a wide selection of rubber grades providing a high level of inherent flexibility and temperature resistance, UV resistance, high thermal properties and water vapour resistance; we can produce goods for an expansive array of both industrial and domestic applications in EPDM, Nitrile, silicone, Neoprene and other rubber materials.
- Gaskets, seals and washers for the automotive, aerospace, light engineering, construction and HVAC industries, to name just a few; to provide fire retardancy, thermal and anti-static properties, and low smoke toxicity as well as providing water vapour, UV and ozone resistance.
- Insulation for plumbing and heating, refrigeration and HVAC systems in the construction, aerospace and marine sectors
- Mouldings and extrusions for cords, tubing and profiles across a myriad of industries.
Using Silicone Rubber
Silicone rubber is widely used in industrial manufacturing, particularly in constructing auto parts, cookware, food storage products, electronics and medical implants. Silicone rubber enjoys such popularity because it is has a number of key strengths, such as high durability, high resistance to heat and outstanding tear strength.
Silicone rubber is also excellent for use in electrical devices and components, as it provides fantastic insulation qualities and maintains a significant amount of flexibility, despite the temperature or environment it is featured in. We can supply silicone rubber products of the highest quality, for a range of purposes and applications.
Flame Retardant Rubber
Our flame retardant rubber has proven to be a highly successful choice for many components which require reliable protection against risk of fire damage. Flame retardant rubber is often used in a wide variety of products across a number of areas, to ensure a greater degree of safety and durability.
EPDM rubber (ethylene propylene diene Monomer) is a popular material which is used in a considerable amount of applications, such as mechanical belts and seals, as well as in vehicles, safety equipment, cable insulation and roofing.
Its popularity is due to its extensive resistance to heat and cold, and the consistently reliable degree of protection it offers against the elements. This makes EPDM rubber an outstanding choice of material for implementation in various different productions.
