Open cell sponge rubber is a type of rubber that has a visible cellular structure on its body and possesses unique properties. In order to make this type of rubber, a foaming agent is introduced into the rubber while it is still in liquid form. The end result is a foam-like rubber material. It has become a popular rubber in recent years for seal and gasket applications. This specific type of sponge rubber is made using neoprene material. As a result, this black rubber foam possesses the classic neoprene resistance to oil and ozone.
Maintains Shape: The unique feature about open cell sponge rubber is its excellent ability to retain its shape after being physically compressed and manipulated. One can bend it or press it down, and right after the pressure is released the foam rubber will bounce back to its original shape. It is this feature that has helped make open cell rubber so popular with consumers.
Neoprene Resistance To Oil: When a material is needed for light oil contact, then consider using this sponge neoprene rubber. Its base compound is neoprene material. Despite the foaming agent used to make this elastomer, it still retains neoprene’s useful ability to resist the damaging effects of oil. While not intended for very heavy oil contact, this black rubber foam will be able to fight off light contact with oils.
Withstands Ozone: Another direct benefit of being made from neoprene material is an ability to operate in the outdoors exposed to ozone in the atmosphere. Ozone is an ever-present element in the outdoors that can cause damage to some materials. Neoprene rubber by itself can do a good job of withstanding the potentially damaging effects of ozone. The sponge neoprene rubber inherits this feature. You can leave it exposed to outdoor elements without having to worry too much about its structural integrity being harmed.
