Polyvinyl Nitrile Foam: A Versatile Material For Demanding Applications

In the realm of industrial materials, few substances offer the versatility and adaptability of  our PVN foam series of polyvinyl nitrile products (PVC/NBR blends). This product line was developed to have good resistance to chemicals, abrasion and tearing.

Why Polyvinyl Nitrile Foam?

This product is suggested for use in applications requiring improved heat and oil resistance. PVN is made in a wide range of densities with a smooth, sharp glossy finish on one side and available with an aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive on the opposite side.

Properties and Characteristics

The key to PVN foam’s widespread use lies in its remarkable properties:

  1. Chemical Resistance: The material resists a range of chemicals, making it ideal for use in environments where spills or exposure to harsh substances can occur.
  2. Abrasion and Tear Resistance: Its robustness makes it suitable for applications where durability can be a concern.
  3. Thermal Break Applications
  4. Shock Absorption and Vibration Dampening
  5. Acoustic Dampening Properties
  6. Flexibility: Despite its strength and durability, the foam remains flexible, which is essential for sealing applications.

Applications in Manufacturing

PVN foam’s diverse properties make it a material of choice in several industries:

  1. Automotive Industry
  2. Construction and HVAC
  3. Electronics


The adaptability of Polyvinyl Nitrile foam extends to its customization. Customers can tailor density, color, and physical dimensions to meet specific needs. This customization extends to higher densities for increased skin durability or different colors for aesthetic or functional purposes.

Future Direction

PVN (Polyvinyl Nitrile) foam represents a perfect blend of strength, flexibility, and utility, making it a staple in diverse manufacturing sectors. Its ability to meet the rigorous demands of different applications underscores its importance.

With application requirements continuing to change, the PVN Foam series is an excellent option to test to your application demands.
