Foam rubber suction cups: irregular surfaces are no longer a problem


Rough, uneven and sometimes even grooved surfaces can be extremely difficult to handle and manipulate. There is a constant risk of accidental damage to the materials themselves due to suction cups failing to properly adhere to the surface, thus resulting in wasted time and money.

Vuototecnica has permanently eliminated this risk thanks to its innovative foam rubber suction cups, which are available in flat round or flat rectangular versions. They are particularly suitable for use on rough surfaces, like sawn marble, textured sheet metal, corrugated or anti-slip materials, striped acrylic, raw concrete, textured patio and garden tiles and, more generally, in all cases where a tight grip on a rough surface is required. In fact, the foam’s softness allows it to adapt to all the grooves and to perfectly adhere to the material.

Our foam rubber suction cups are made using a special high density blend of material, with an optimal elastic yield. They have a self-adhesive side for quick and easy fastening and offer guaranteed functionality at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +80°C. In the case of oil-coated grip surfaces and outdoor equipment, it is possible to make use of neoprene foam (NF) rubber, which has an operating temperature range of -20°C to +80°C and is capable of withstanding the wear and tear of the atmospheric agents. The durability of these suction cups is guaranteed over time, even after many operating cycles.

  1. Dear Sir,

    We are manufacturers of machinery for producing concrete kerb stones and slabs using vacuum dewatering and pressing similar to the ones produced by Fielding and Platt in Gloucester earlier.

    We need the foam strips used for the vacuum suction pads of our take off unit.

    You may refer our more information about our product.

    Awaiting your reply.


  2. We assemble a finished product that requires the transition of irregular surfaced stainless steel plates. I am interested in the potential application of this product to move these plates from the work table to the stack table.

  3. Hello, I am looking for suction cup for building concrete wall. And for non smooth surface.

    Awaiting your reply.

  4. Dear Sir / Madam,

    We are interested in your foam rubber suction cups.

    Please send me prices according to sizes.


  5. Hello,

    I’m looking for a suction cup for handling rough surfaces.

    Could you please provide with your product catalogue.



  6. Do these have to have active suction applied to them (like from an air hose, etc)? Or can these be used similar to any standard suction cup you’d buy from any hardware store?

  7. Hi there.

    I am an engineering student assigned with the task of creating a ceiling cleaning device that can hold approximately 5 kg. The ceiling is irregular so i am interested in using the foam rubber suction cups. What kind of active pressure would need to be applied to the suction cup to sustain the vacuum strong enough for this weight? Also, is there a small scale vacuum pump capable of handling this pressure ?

    I look forward to your reply.
    thank you in advance
