What is Strip-N-Stick?

Many years ago the Connecticut Hard Rubber (CHR) 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 & Stockwell Gasket Tape

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 St. Gobain distributer / 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 was one of the submitters but for better or worse, was not the winner but is one of the few remaining original suppliers.

For more information about custom silicone gaskets and cushioning pads fabricated from St. Gobain COHRlastic materials… transitioning to NORSEAL silicone materials, please contact Stockwell Elastomerics at 1-800-523-123 or email service@stockwell.com.
