Foam Rubber

An Introduction to CB Frost's Foam Rubber

At CB Frost, as well as providing a number of sponge and foam materials in sheet and strip form, we can also manufacture a multitude of products in house, including gaskets, washers, extrusions, fabrications and mouldings. However, as well as common industrial uses of foam and sponge materials, these highly versatile materials are used in a wide range of applications, products and services that the average person comes across on a daily basis including trains, packaging, insulation, toys, upholstery and sporting protective gear.

What Is Foam Rubber?

Foam rubber can refer to a wide variety of foam types. For example, both polyethylene and polyurethane foams are types of foam rubber. Although often shortened, the word foam doesn’t refer to a singular product. It refers to the cellular structure. That’s why foam can be found in many different forms.

Why Use Foam Rubber?

Sponge profiles are fabricated into finished gaskets that are used for shock absorption and provide good compression and recovery. In addition, sponge rubber also supports custom fabrication; as well as being used in food and medical industries. For example, open-cell foams are used in prosphetic devices, medical sponges, electrodiogram pads, medical filters and sterilization bags.

The Advantages Of Foam Rubber

Foam rubber has many useful properties including its weight, buoyancy, compressibility, comfort and insulation.

Disadvantages of Foam Rubber?

Foam rubber has some disadvantages including fabrication and processing time in production and ability to withstand tearing. These disadvantages mean that other forms of rubber have to be utilised if there is a risk of tearing.
