Vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers in the world of gaskets for windows frames and doors

Making gaskets for windows frames and doors is also possible with the so-called vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers, also known as TPV, which are the result of a plastic-elastomeric alloy that offers high performance and ease of processing.Furthermore the products obtained from vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers are completely recyclable and, like all materials characterized by an elastomeric phase, they are distinguished by the elastic properties and softness which are typical of the rubber.

The features of vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers

Vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers are among the finest materials, ideal for making gaskets for windows frames and doors, and they have important features that make them interesting for different sectors. In fact, they have a high elastic return at different temperatures, excellent resistance to UV, ozone and atmospheric ageing and they also resist to chemical agents (bases, acids, alcohols, detergents, aqueous solutions and solvents). In addition, they give positive response in relation to fatigue and if they are evaluated for the thermal and electrical insulation capacity. Besides, the products made of vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers resist to abrasion and in most cases have no problems with the colouring processes.

 

Why choose a TPV gasket

Among the sectors in which it is possible to apply the products made with vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers, there is certainly that of automotive, especially in relation to small parts such as doors gaskets, glass encapsulation and similar profiles.

Even in the field of construction, with endurance profiles for doors and windows or hydraulic seals, as well as in the field of appliances the vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers are widely used.

Lastly, these products can be used in the electric field, thanks to the great ability of the raw material to isolate electrically and provide protection against UV rays.
