MOOSUP, Conn.—Griswold L.L.C. recently launched FlameSafe, a new line of continuous natural rubber sponges that it claims is the first to meet UL HB flame rating specification.
The non-halogenated RoHS-compliant sponge matches the strong grip, resiliency and vibration damping properties of Griswold's traditional sponges, while adding flame resistance, the company noted in a recent news release.
FlameSafe sponges, which are claimed to be both sustainable and recyclable, come in multiple firmness and thickness options, and can be used in applications such as appliances, robotics, and industrial enclosures.
In July, Rogers Corp. expanded its portfolio of offerings when it acquired Griswold, a Moosup-based manufacturer of cellular elastomer and high-performance polyurethane. Griswold products have a variety of applications including general industrial, electronics, automotive and consumer markets.
