Many users of sponge rubber products for sealing are unaware that UL guidelines dictate that when adhesive is applied to sponge rubber the chemistry has been changed. Essentially, this creates a new product which must pass specific tests to be added to a list of approved UL materials.
In this guide, we will break down our three combinations to help you identify the best solution for your application.
8002/702P is considered our “high-end” combination utilizing greater temperature ratings and high-performance adhesive. 8002 sponge is pure EPDM sponge. It has 2A2 ASTM designation with a density of 9 +/-2. The 702P adhesive is a heavy mass 7mil (liner side) double coated acrylic tape.
5031/9824 is considered our “mid-grade”. 5031 sponge is a blend of EPDM/CR/SBR. It has 2A1 ASTM designation with a density of 6 +/-2. The 9824 adhesive is 3mil (liner side) high strength double coated acrylic tape.
DK1111/9816 is considered our “general purpose” combination and also utilizes a rubber based adhesive. DK1111 sponge is a blend of EPDM and Neoprene. It has 2C1 ASTM designation with a density of 5. The 9816 adhesive is 3.5mil (liner side) double coated high tack rubber-based tape.
