Foam & Sponge Rubber
JBC Technologies has more than 30 years of experience sourcing, converting, and delivering custom-engineered die cut foam and sponge rubber parts. Available in many different thicknesses, densities, and chemical compositions, die cut foams and sponge rubbers are used in many automotive and industrial applications – from gasketing, cushioning, and sealing to vibration damping, sound absorption, and more.
Not only will we help you identify the best foam or sponge rubber material for your die cut application, we can also help you identify the right pressure sensitive adhesive and release liner, source the materials, and surface treat, laminate, slit, and construct the composite material in house to any of the foams we cut.
Automotive Grade Foams
JBC laminates, slits, and die cuts many automotive grade foams for use in applications that range from foam trim to automotive insulation, sound absorption, cushioning, and high-grade vibration damping. Each product group offers distinct advantages. Let our experienced technical experts and engineers help you identify the best foam for your application. Some of the automotive grade foams we work with include Armacell’s Ensolite®, Monarch®, and OleTex®, Nitto Denko’s EPT-SEALER®, Legetolex™, and SCF®, and INOAC’s Sealflex™, and CALMFLEX®.
High Temperature Foams
JBC has extensive experience sourcing, slitting, laminating, and die cutting high temperature foams such as Silicone, Fluorosilicone, Fluorocarbon, and ECH (Epichlorohydrin), for leading manufacturers across industries.
Closed Cell Foams
Chemical, flame, UV, and water resistant, closed cell foams have strong shock absorption properties and are ideal for applications that require a strong, leak-resistant moisture barrier. Compositions include Neoprene (CR), EPDM, SBR, Vinyl Nitrile, PVC, and XLPE.
Extremely soft and highly conformable, crushed EPDM/EPT foams are very common in automotive applications. They are very effective at sealing out water and dust in doors and windows and are a great option for applications that demand parts with resistance to weather conditions and corrosive environments.
Open Cell Foams
Lightweight and flexible, open cell foams are good for good for mitigating NVH & BSR, sound-proofing, protective packaging, and applications where air and moisture permeability is needed. Compositions include Polyether (Ether), Polyester (Ester,) Reticulated, and Silicone.
With a low compression set, microcellular foams are a higher-performance option. Available compositions include Polyether (Ether), Polyester (Ester), Silicone, Urethane, high-performance Poron microcellular urethane, and ISOLOSS™ LS Polyurethane Foam, manufactured by Aearo Technologies LLC, an independent wholly owned 3M subsidiary.
Here are just a few of the many material partners we work with:
We also work with customer supplied material. If you have material that you need converted, please reach out to your sales representative or contact us for additional information.
