Gasket Tape provides our customers with high performance silicone sponge and silicone foam gasketing in tape form,” said Stockwell Elastomerics’ President Bill Stockwell.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 14, 2011
Stockwell Elastomerics announces the availability - with short lead times - of Silicone Sponge and Silicone Foam Gasket Tape. Pre-made master rolls enable fast-turn production of slit-to-width rolls to support the need for high performance silicone sponge and silicone foam gasketing that must withstand outdoor conditions and temperature extremes. These gasket tape products have adhesive backing on one side and are wound into master rolls of 15 feet to 30 feet long depending on the thickness of the material.
Six gasket tape products are now available with fast lead times to customers, including Strip-N-Stick® 100S, Strip-N-Stick® 200A, Strip-N-Stick® 300AR, Strip-N-Stick® 512, HT-800 and 400FR Gasket Tape. Customers can request a free “Touch Brochure” with small samples of these gasket tape products to touch and feel the material.

“Gasket Tape provides our customers with high performance silicone sponge and silicone foam gasketing in tape form,” said Stockwell Elastomerics’ President Bill Stockwell. “Having these materials pre-laminated and ready for fast-turn custom slitting has allowed us to quickly respond to customers requiring only a few rolls up to thousands of linear feet.”
The most frequently specified Gasket Tape roll widths are .500”, .750”, 1.00” and 2.00” wide. However, any width over .375” is available promptly in custom slit rolls.
Three particular silicone Gasket Tape products have been specified for long-term sealing of enclosures from outdoor and other harsh environments. Applications for these materials have included telecom base stations, outdoor LED lighting housings, ventilation and rugged outdoor equipment.
Strip-N-Stick® 200A is closed cell silicone sponge rubber with high strength acrylic transfer film adhesive. Strip-N-Stick 200A is available in .062”, .125”, .188” and .250” thick. It is mainly specified by designers of enclosures and ventilation systems requiring UV resistance, weatherproofing and long service life. The high strength acrylic transfer film adhesive used on Strip-N-Stick 200A will bond to most surfaces including powder coat finishes; a sample roll can be provided to confirm compatibility.
HT-800 Gasket Tape is closed cell silicone foam with high tack, film supported acrylic adhesive which provides non-stretch dimensional stability. HT-800 Gasket Tape is available in .062”, .125”, .188” and .250” thick. It is specified by designers of telecommunications cabinets, air handling and outdoor enclosures where UL 94V-0 flame ratings, incidental moisture and UL 50E periodic recompression performance is needed. HT-800 Gasket Tape is stocked in gray silicone foam; it can also be provided in black silicone foam.
400FR Gasket Tape is flame retardant closed cell silicone sponge with high strength acrylic transfer film adhesive. 400FR Gasket Tape is presently available in .125” and .250” thick. It is mainly specified by designers of enclosures and ventilation systems requiring a durable closed cell silicone sponge with UL 94V-0 flame rating with UV resistance, weatherproofing and long service life.
Any of these Gasket Tape products can be die cut or water jet cut into custom gaskets if slit-to-width roll materials are not suitable for a sealing requirement.
