Stockwell Elastomerics announces its silicone foam and closed cell silicone sponge enclosure gaskets and cushioning pads with high strength pressure sensitive acrylic adhesives for bonding to powder coated metal surfaces and certain low surface energy plastics. Primers allow for lamination of 3M Corporations’ 9485 acrylic transfer film adhesive and 9490LE film supported acrylic adhesive onto silicone foam, closed cell silicone sponge and solid silicone rubber. Gaskets are then water jet cut or die cut to size, or slit-to-width into rolls for installation. Film supported adhesive backings provide dimensional stability which may benefit the assembly of thin-walled gaskets onto some enclosure designs. Silicone foams and closed cell silicone sponge materials are available from .032 inches thick to .500 inches thick in soft, medium and firm densities.
