Fluid & Air Management

Current & Controlled

Air flow, filtration, and fluids become much easier to manage with our unique fabrication and materials expertise. Our extensive knowledge on the mercurial nature of liquid and air, enables us to create functional solutions in a vast range of configurations.



UFP Technologies has extensive experience in designing and producing filter components that remove dust and contaminating particles from air, gases and liquids and remove or separate impurities in liquids. Our components can also collect vaporized oils from industrial equipment, act as an evaporative surface and clean oil spills. There are unlimited possibilities regarding the final shape of the component and combinations with other materials. Applications include:

  • Small engines
  • Air conditioners
  • Humidifiers
  • Refrigerators
  • Electronic air cleaners
  • Forced air appliances
  • Industrial compressors
Fluid Management

Fluid Management

Fluid management solutions typically perform a number of critical functions including holding or reservoiring liquids, transporting or carrying liquids, releasing liquids and picking up residue. In most cases, flexible reticulated polyurethane foams are used when creating fluid management components. The cell structure helps transport fluids from a reservoir to an application surface.

Our advanced knowledge and access to specialty materials, design expertise and vast manufacturing capabilities make UFP an ideal partner to meet your needs. We have created custom fluid management solutions including industrial cleaning sponges, oil wicking components in electric motors and media transport devices in ink cartridges.

UFP works with the world’s leading foam manufacturers to provide you with access to a wide range of materials. We’ll operate as an extension of your core team to determine the best material for your application before designing and manufacturing your fluid management components.

Seals & Gaskets 

Seals & Gaskets 

Gaskets and seals are typically used to manage vibration, temperature, and liquids. UFP Technologies uses open- and closed-cell materials to create custom seals and gaskets for a variety of industries. Open-cell foams can be used as a low-pressure gasket by compressing its thickness to seal out air, dust or light. Closed-cell materials, such as cross-linked polyethylene, PVC or rubber are most often used when the application requires sealing a liquid under high pressure.

UFP can also adhere custom gaskets and seals with a pressure sensitive adhesive backing to simplify end use, in most cases using our die-cutting capabilities to produce the final gasket and seal components.

We will operate as an extension of your core team to deliver custom gasket and seal solutions that meet your requirements and exceed your expectations. UFP has provided custom foam seals and gaskets for:

  • Automotive manufacturing
  • Chemical processing
  • Building and construction applications
