Static Seals, Gap Filler & Exterior Finishing

THE FINISHING TOUCH!

Static sealing prevents air and dirt from working its way in bodywork components to provide acoustic comfort and improving the cleanliness of vehicle parts which may come into contact with clothing.

For highly-exposed areas, such as the windscreen contour, color uniformity, matte finish and UV aging-resistance are all key parts of vehicle aesthetics.

Additionally, many plastic parts include a soft lip having a sealing role or for vibration and noise reductions. 

TECHNOLOGIES

From its wide range of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), the materials developed for automotive seals are:

  • TEFABLOC™: TPE-S TPE-Sv.
  • TREXPRENE™: TPV (PP/EPDM)
  • SUNPRENE™: High performance PVC compounds
  • DURABIO™: Engineering transparent bio-sourced resin

FEATURES

MULTI-MATERIAL

More often than not, a static seal part will consist of a structural PP element and a lip.
TREXPRENE™ is 100% PP compatible while TEFABLOC™ also offers solutions for ASA, PC, ABS, SAN, PA, PBT, DURABIO™.

PERFORMANCE AND PRODUCTIVITY

  • Excellent elastic memory in both hot and cold conditions
  • Exceptional UV resistance
  • No paint staining
  • High fluidity

will guarantee the sealing performance over time and high productivity at processing.

DESIGN

According to technology, varying degrees of native matte/gloss are offered with high fluidity of injection grades which offer a perfect reproduction of the mold surface grain.

DURABILITY

Excellent weathering resistance preserves the overall appearance of the vehicle while also preventing the blueing effect often observed with EPDM seals.

SUSTAINABILITY

SUNPRENE™TEFABLOC™ and TREXPRENE™ are fully recyclable. With parts incorporating PP stiffeners with TPEs, they will promote the impact resistance of the recycled material.
