Tapes & Gaskets


Cross-linked polyolefin foams unique combination of mechanical, chemical, and thermal properties make them an ideal replacement for traditional gasket foams such as EPDM rubber, polyurethane and PVC.

Advantages of Softlon® foams:

  • Wide density range: (25 to 200kg/m3).
  • Wide thickness range: (between 0.8mm & 64mm).
  • Flame retardant characteristics to meet FMVSS 302, and UL 94 HF-1 requirements.
  • Light weight – up to 84% lighter than PVC foam.
  • Wide working temperature (-80°C up to 130°C depending on type).
  • Inertness against most chemicals including fuels, oils, brake fluids and cooling liquids.
  • Good weathering resistance and ageing behaviour.
  • Good cushioning characteristics.
  • Fine regular closed cell structure with two process skins.
  • Nearly no water absorption, low water vapour transmission.
  • Low fogging values.
  • Excellent thermoplastic properties, particularly vacuum and press-forming.
  • Good thermal and noise insulation properties.
  • Odourless and non-toxic.
  • Ecologically and chemically neutral.
  • Safe disposal by dumping or incineration in the event of recycling not being possible
