N/A Foam Seal Low Density is an economical general purpose foam. Low Density foam is used for applications requiring a seal for tight radius curves. Low density remains pliable at temperatures of -20 ºC to 78 ºC.

Back Stripping

Back Stripping

N/A Also known as reverse wrapping. Foam seal manufactures the foam with the adhesive side exposed. The length is determined with the foam used in this manner. When the use requires the adhesive side to be against the paper, the product has to be reverse wrapped so the uncoated foam is exposed. This causes a loss of yield in length. The reason for this loss is that the configuration of the foam is changed because the foam is compressed onto a shorter length of liner. The loss will be equal to the outer circumference of the material minus 10 inches.



N/A Product shelf life begins on the date of production as referenced by the lot number. Foam Seal Density has a shelf life of 6 months with adhesive and 2 years without adhesive when stored at or below 75 ºF.
