Open and Closed Cell Materials
Closed cell — also known as expanded rubber — materials we work with include neoprene, silicone, PVC foam and more. Various densities, thicknesses and colors are available. Available open cell products include a wide range of natural and synthetic rubbers. Contact American Micro Industries directly for a complete list of materials.
Closed cell sponge materials tend to be more rigid, while open cell sponge rubbers are softer, with a higher compression set. That being said, different materials offer different properties. With a long history in manufacturing, we can recommend a product with the material properties your project requires.
Manufacturers use cell sponge rubber to create gaskets, seals, safety bumper strips, packaging materials and other products. Generally speaking, cellular rubber products offer excellent oil and water resistance, consistent performance in extreme temperatures, superior durability and other desirable properties. They are also easy to cut with precision, resulting in a higher quality of finished product.
Many of our cell sponge rubber materials meet ASTM or MIL-STD standards for use in specialized applications. Contact our office to discuss the needs of your project and let our team suggest a product that will deliver the best value for your money.
