Foam Gaskets and Seals Manufacturer

As the biggest polyethylene foam converter in Europe, at Polyformes Ltd, we have more than 40 years of experience working with a huge range of foam materials. The use of closed cell foam materials is especially common in the construction and building industry due to it's sealing, condensation control, expansion fillers, thermal insulation and acoustic deadening capabilities.

Foam Gaskets

Our foam gaskets are used across a number of industries including automotive, rail and building due to their malleable properties. At Polyformes Ltd, we look at your needs and work with you throughout to develop an ideal solution.

Foam Seals

We utilise closed-cell foam materials to manufacture foam seals for a number of industries most notably building and construction. Our foam seals are custom made to suit your specific application including shape, colour and material itself. Foam seals are durable and consistent over long periods of time making them a suitable choice over alternative materials.

Foam Spacers

Foam is an excellent material for using as washers, rings and spacers due to its durability, deadening and insulation. As opposed to rubber spacers, foam spacers are used for a wide variety of applications such as acoustic, electric or thermal insulation, protection against humidity and even flame protection.

Foam Bungs and Plugs

At Polyformes Ltd, we work with a number of industries including medical and pharmaceutical as well as marine to create bespoke foam bungs and plugs. Due to their water-resistant properties, our closed-cell foam materials such as ARPLANK, Plastazote and Evazote are commonly used to develop a solution.

Foam Seals

Serving Numerous Industries

Our foam gaskets, seals, spacers, bungs and plugs are used right across the gasketing industry, benefitting various sectors, including plumbing, construction, electrical and electronics, automotive, medical, pharmaceutical, rail, and glazing.

Delivering High Performance

To ensure your foam gaskets, seals, spacers, bungs and plugs always deliver the high performance your project requires, at Polyformes, we utilise some of the industry’s most advanced foam engineering processes, including:

Moulding and Forming – At Polyformes, the investments we’ve made into our moulding and forming processes, mean that we’re able to produce all types of foam gaskets, foam seals, foam spacers, foam bungs and foam plugs, in highly intricate designs, within a quick turnaround, and in low or high volumes.

CNC Routing and Machining – Our CNC (Computer Numerical Control) routing and machining capabilities are amongst the best in the UK, and allow us to create highly intricate products, including gaskets, seals, spacers, bungs and plugs, within a quick timescale, and to close tolerances, even at high volumes.

Die-cutting – Die-cutting is one of the key processes used in the manufacture of gaskets. At Polyformes, we have 8 inhouse presses, able to produce high-quality gaskets in a variety of foam materials, for a multitude of uses, in high or low volumes.

Waterjet cutting – Waterjet cutting is another process used for foam fabrication to consistently create highly-intricate products, such as some types of gaskets, spacers, seals, bungs and plugs. Often used in conjunction with CNC (Computer Numerical Control) routing, waterjet cutting is used to ensure each foam product is precision-engineered to the highest standard possible.

Printing – At Polyformes, our unique, patented 4 colour printing method has been developed to print designs, such as logos or text for instructional or informational purposes, and colours for branding or colour-coding etc., onto foam products, such as gaskets, seals, spacers, bungs and plugs.

What are Foam Gaskets?

Foam gaskets are foam inserts manufactured predominately from closed cell polyethylene foam, positioned between two hard surfaces of a particular system or mechanism, designed to improve specific capabilities, including:

  • Cushioning
  • Insulation
  • Noise reduction
  • Waterproofing
  • Chemical resistance
  • Electrical resistance

What are Foam Spacers?

Most foam spacers resemble round metal washers, and are designed to create space, and a barrier between two hard surfaces. Commonly used across industrial sectors such as aeronautical, construction, plumbing and automotive, foam spacers are manufactured using both closed cell and open cell foam materials.

What are Foam Seals?

Created in various bespoke shapes and sizes, foam seals are designed to provide a barrier to dust, moisture, air, oils and other chemicals, whilst also helping to reduce vibration and provide better cushioning. At Polyformes, our foam seals are manufactured using various closed and open cell foam materials.

What are Foam Bungs and Plugs?

Foam bungs and plugs are used across a wide range of industries and sectors, such as pharmaceutical, medical, marine and sailing, construction and plumbing, and various other sectors and industries where sterility, hygiene, chemical inertness, and heat resistance is essential. At Polyformes, our bungs and plugs are manufactured using open cell and closed cell foam materials, depending on their specific use.
