When the elastomer compounds of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and Nitrile (Buna-N) combine, excellent energy / impact absorbing properties and good chemical resistance properties are demonstrated. Closed cell PVC/Nitrile sponge rubber is a premium gasket and seal material and is also an excellent material for padding and shock absorption applications. Atlantic Gasket Corporation is a leading manufacturer of gaskets and die-cut parts fabricated from PVC/Nitrile closed cell sponge. And although we use closed cell PVC/Nitrile rubber for a variety of industrial applications, it is also used as protective padding in personal protective equipment, sports gear, and many other commercial applications. Our gasket engineering team will work with you to provide custom PVC/Nitrile closed cell sponge die-cut or waterjet cut gaskets and padding to your exact requirements with or without an adhesive backing. This material can also be supplied in continuous rolls starting as narrow as ¼" wide.
|Example Gasket Application
|Gaskets and Seals
|The fine closed cell structure, chemical resistance and UL 94 flammability rating makes closed cell PVC/Nitrile the perfect gasket material for many products.
|Shock Absorbing and Padding
|With excellent shock and impact absorbing characteristics, PVC/Nitrile closed cell sponge is an excellent material for protective padding in athletic equipment or in any other application that requires an energy absorbing material.
Depending on the grade, Atlantic Gasket’s PVC/Nitrile (Buna-N) gaskets and seals meets the following specifications: ASTM D 1056-68, 1056-85, 91, 98, UL 94 HF-1, UL 94 VO, and FMVSS-302.
