Material Benefits
Rubatex sponge rubber products offer customers a highly durable material that is easy to convert or fabricate. Compared to open cell sponges, they provide excellent dimensional stability, low moisture absorption and are higher strength. As such, it is often the sponge rubber of choice for general purpose seal and gasket applications where dust and fluids need to be kept in or out. In addition, to the qualities above our closed cell sponge products are also:

    • Lightweight
    • Durable
    • Compressible
    • Flame retardant
    • Shock/impact absorbent
    • Weatherproof


Common Applications
Rubatex materials can be converted or fabricated into a broad range of end use products. Blended grades such as the ones we supply are best used to prevent the flow of fluids, air, dust and moisture either into or out of an application. This means they are an excellent choice for gasket, sealing, stripping and damping. More specific uses include:

‣ Acoustic Damping
‣ Anti-fatigue Mats
‣ Automotive Gaskets
‣ Cushioning & Padding
‣ Electrical Enclosures
‣ HVAC Gaskets & Seals
‣ Outdoor Gaskets & Seals
‣ Packaging
‣ Vibration Damping
‣ Weatherproofing/Weather Stripping
