Weatherstripping is the process of sealing openings such as doors, windows, and trunks from the elements. The term can also refer to the materials used to carry out such sealing processes.
The goal of weatherstripping is to prevent rain and water from entering entirely or partially and accomplishes this by either returning or rerouting water. A secondary goal of weatherstripping is to keep interior air in, thus saving energy on heating and air conditioning.
SRP can custom fabricate weatherstripping by combining a substrate such as rubber, foam, and sponge to the right adhesive to guarantee the perfect seal every time. Depending on the application there are a variety of materials used for weatherstripping applications.
Common weatherstripping materials:
- PORON Urethane Foam
- Silicone Sponge
- PVC Foam
- Closed Cell Sponge
- Open Cell Sponge
- Polyurethane Foam
- Cellular Urethane
Common weatherstripping applications:
- Doors + windows
- Automotive components
- Building + Construction
- Home improvement
- Outdoor appliances
- HVAC equipment
