Purposes

  • To provide the seal between sliding side window & door interior
  • Outer  seal provides main seal to external elements
  • Inner seal provides barrier to dust & small objects
  • Lip type seals  creating wiping action on glass

Important points

  • For sliding effect, low friction is important. For low friction, spray coating and flocking can be used for EPDM process. And slip coat and flock tape can be chosen for TPV solutions.
  • Low compression set
  • Good adhesion to PP (mounting foot is PP, for TPV lips)
  • The part must have desired gloss and surface aesthetics
  • UV resistance
  • OEM specification compliance
