At American Flexible Products, we’re not just materials experts—we’re solutions experts. Tell us your issues and we’ll help you choose the best path to avoid obstacles and the right product to finish your project. Here are some of the common factors we consider when choosing a material:

High & Low Temp

We help you choose materials that can withstand temperature extremes, which may cause changes in physical and electrical properties of materials.


EMI or RFI shields separate a device’s electronic components to suppress electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI).

Chemicals resistance

Our materials experts constantly work with and understand the importance of chemical resistance when it comes to gaskets, seals and more.

Adhesive Compatibility

Our material experts can help choose a product based on adhesive compatibility — how well two or more parts bond together throughout use.

Air & Water seal

Our experts can recommend which materials are best for deflecting air and water while factoring in stress relaxation and compression set resistance.


Our AFP team helps you choose materials that can withstand environments where parts and materials may come in contact with flame.


We’ll recommend the best pressure-friendly materials for your project, whether it be open cell foams, closed cell sponges, rubbers and more.

UV & ozone

The materials we work with have been tested and defined on how effective each type performs while under direct UV and Ozone exposure.


Anti-vibration materials, such as silicone or PORON, are important to lessen or impede damage to sensitive components during light or heavy use.


We have a line of thermal and electrical insulating materials designed to ensure proper operation of electronic and electromechanical equipment.


The conductive properties of a material or final component can be one of the most important. If you have questions about which material is best for you, call us today.

gap size

Have a specific gap size that needs to be tightly and securely filled? We can fabricate your gaskets and seals in any size, shape and from nearly any material you desire.


Our experts can recommend which materials are best for blocking contaminants while still effectively allowing your end product to function.

compression force

We know which materials are best for absorbing compression while subject to gases, liquids or dry areas around gasketing and sealing.


Our material experts can help choose a product based on acoustical requirements. Need help with deciding on a material? Contact us today.
