CRG is a recognized leading producer of closed cell silicone sponge gaskets. These gaskets are used in a variety of applications, including sealing, vibration isolation and dampening, cushioning, and environmental. Our silicone sponge gaskets are fabricated from a variety of quality silicone sponge materials, using the most advanced manufacturing techniques.

Closed cell silicone sponge is often referred to as “expanded silicone.” The material is produced when uncured gum silicone is cured at high temperature and allowed to expand to a pre-determined thickness. The term “closed cell” is used because, as the gum silicone cures and expands, it produces a cellular structure within the material where the cells are completely enclosed and non-interconnecting. The resulting sponge is relatively impervious to the transmission of water or moisture through its structure, hence its use in applications where a waterproof seal is desired.

Closed cell silicone sponge is an interesting material. It possesses a high tensile and greater tear resistance, making it a more durable material that silicone foam. Closed cell silicone sponge is a flexible material, meaning it can readily adapt to variety of shapes and contours. It has non-stick properties and has good resistance to ozone and UV light. As noted above, the material presents a good barrier to the ingress of water or moisture when used as a seal.
