Foam & Sponge
RH Nuttall Limited produce foam washers, foam gaskets, foam strips, foam insulations, foam sheet, foam strip and foam pads from the list of foam below. Foam or sponge can be defined as a substance that has been formed by trapping many gas bubbles in a solid. There are many different types of foam available.
Foam strip and foam sheet are generally used for air or water filtration, draught sealing solutions, sound deadening, thermal insulation, cushioning, sealing and packaging. Foams range from low density, to medium density, through to high density. They either portray an open cell structure designed for air and water filtration, and sound and noise reduction purposes or a closed cell structure for heat insulation and water absorption prevention.
Self adhesive backing can be applied to any foam. Furthermore, food quality as well as flame retardant grades are available in certain foams where required.In fact we can supply foam sheeting to suit any application ranging from acoustic foam sheet with a Class O fire rating for all your sound deadening applications, right through to silicone sponge strip for high temperature sealing around fires and cookers.
Foam Gaskets are also cut in large volume by our Company with a whole host of applications including mouse mats, letterbox gaskets, street lighting applications and electrical packaging. Adhesive Backed Foam Pads can be manufactured in large or small quantity to bespoke sizes. In fact we have become a leading supplier of foam mouse mat bases to a large and varied number of industries.
We are fast becoming the leading supplier of all expanded closed cell foam blocks. Our foam blocks can be supplied in any size and almost any of the materials below. Our range of Polyethylene foam blocks are most common and especially useful in all pipework and ducting support systems. Due to the closed cell structure of Polyethylene foam it makes it an ideal choice of material for thermal foam blocks to be made from.
