RH Nuttall Limited manufacture and supply sponge gaskets and sponge pads to any given specification. Sponge gaskets differ from solid rubber in that the material used is a blown variant of solid rubber, making it a lighter and more compressible material.

Gaskets of any kind have a tough job, and sponge contains the necessary properties that make it an inherently great material for sealing joins, given its flexibility, water-proofing and pliable nature.

There are many different types of sponge available, including both open cell sponge gaskets as well as closed cell sponge gaskets. At RH Nuttall, we have the full range, enabling our customers to always find the right gasket for the desired application.

More common sponge gaskets are manufactured in either neoprene sponge of EPDM sponge. Both of these material are of the closed cell kind and, as a result, offer excellent solutions for sealing against water and air.

For further details on the different types of sponge in which we can supply our foam gaskets, please visit our sponge materials section.

Our Birmingham-based team commonly work on runs that include all neoprene sponge gaskets, EPDM sponge gaskets and polyethylene foam gaskets.

We understand that certain applications require ultra ease of installation – particularly where tight spaces and small surface areas are concerned. For that reason, self-adhesive backing can be applied to most of the sponge gaskets we supply. Adhesive foam gaskets also aid significantly in third-hand fixing for various applications.

Sponge gaskets can also be supplied in a ‘kiss cut’ format to aid in dispensing on many assembly lines. For further information on this, please contact a member of our sales team.

Sponge gaskets (both neoprene sponge and EPDM sponge) can be supplied in numerous colours and thicknesses, depending on the base material foam required. This ensures a tidy installation in applications where consistency and uniformity are vital.

Common thicknesses you can easily source from RH Nuttall are as follows:

  • 1.5mm
  • 2mm
  • 3mm
  • 4mm
  • 5mm
  • 6mm
  • 10mm
  • 12mm
  • 15mm
  • 20mm
  • 25mm

However, if your requirements differ from the above, please do not hesitate to get in touch, as we can manufacture our gaskets to pretty much any specification.

Lastly, who said these kind of parts need to be dull? While our sponge gaskets are available in the standard black and white colours, our popular polyethylene foam gaskets can be supplied in a range of colours, depending on the quality required.
