Closed cell Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) foam is used in a variety of industrial and commercial gasket and sealing applications. A lightweight and odorless material, EVA foam exhibits good mechanical strength, excellent chemical resistance, high buoyancy, low water absorption, and good acoustic properties. Atlantic Gasket Corporation is a leading gasket manufacturer to a broad national and international customer base. EVA foam is available at Atlantic Gasket along with a wide range of other rubber gasket and sealing materials. Our gasket engineering department welcomes the opportunity to help you select the best material for your custom die-cut gaskets and seals.
|Example Gasket Application||Properties|
|Weatherproofing Applications||Closed cell EVA foam rubber demonstrates excellent climate, temperature, and aging resistance in outdoor applications that are exposed to extreme conditions.|
|Automotive Gaskets||This foam gasket and sealing material performs well in automotive applications in the interior of vehicles. Its oil and chemical resistance make this material suitable in other areas as well.|
|Shock Absorbing Applications||Closed cell Ethylene Vinyl Acetate is typically used as a shock absorber in sports shoes and padding in equipment for various sports such as hockey and boxing, and can be found in wakeboard boots and ski boots. This material is also used in orthotics.|
