All window seals have the same basic job, whether they’re used on semi-trucks or recreational watercraft. The challenge, however, is finding something flexible enough to match your design needs while providing the durability and weatherability needed to withstand long-term exposure to the elements. A failed seal allows moisture and humidity to breach the window, causing visibility and containment issues.
The effectiveness of a window seal comes down to its material and design. Window seals manufactured from durable and flexible materials like EPDM, Neoprene, and Santoprene achieve the best results. EDPM is often preferred for semi-truck window seals because of its resistance to weather and extreme temperatures, both of which are critical factors for vehicles that spend countless hours on the road. Neoprene works best for marine applications because it provides high weather and temperature resistance, along with withstanding grease and oil. Santoprene works well for architectural or automotive window seals because of its temperature resistance and long-term aging properties.
When you work with us, the custom window seal production process is fairly straightforward. Simply provide us with your seal profile and material specification, and we’ll take it from there. We produce seals for both static and dynamic windows, and nearly any profile, length, or thickness is possible. Come to us with your design, and we’ll create a custom window seal that solves even the most complex sealing challenges.
