Many years ago the Connecticut Hard Rubber (CHR) Company developed Strip-N-Stick®, an expanded silicone sponge with a silicone based adhesive backing. Through a web of acquisitions, CHR was acquired by Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics who currently manufactures the Strip-N-Stick® family of products. Strip-N-Stick options have expanded over the years to include acrylic adhesive, reinforced silicone sponge, open cell silicone foam and solid silicone rubber.
Strip-N-Stick is widely used for enclosure gaskets, large radome gaskets, cushioning strips and many other applications where a conformable gasket tape is needed. Stockwell Elastomerics is a preferred Saint-Gobain distributor / converter, with master log inventory. While common widths for Strip-N-Stick are 1” and 0.75”, Stockwell Elastomerics cuts all Strip-N-Stick and gasket tapes to width at the time of ordering. This helps ensure good inventory turns and fresh adhesive.
Most Popular Strip-N-Stick Gasket Materials:
- SNS-100S – Medium Closed Cell Silicone Sponge Tape, Silicone PSA
- SNS-200A – Medium Closed Cell Silicone Sponge Tape, Acrylic PSA
- SNS-300AR – Medium Closed Cell Silicone Sponge Tape, Reinforced
An interesting side note about the name Strip-N-Stick – it came from a contest where samples were sent to distributors who were asked to name the product. Stockwell Rubber Company was one of the submitters but was not the winner. Now Stockwell Elastomerics is one of the few remaining original suppliers.
