Edge trim sealing profiles

Edge protection and sealing

Edge trim and sealing profiles

Rubber edge trim and sealing profiles are made in different materials. The selection depends on the specific requirements. They are used for decoration, protection and sealing purposes.

Use

  • Truck cabs
  • Tractors
  • Motorcycles
  • ATV fenders
  • Fiberglass panels
  • Sheet metalparts
  • Etc.

 

Rubber edge trim and sealing profiles are also called clip on sealing profiles or rubber edge protectors.

Edge trim and sealing profiles material combinations

  • Standard edge trim profiles in PVC
  • PVC – EPDM edge trim profiles with sealing bulb or lip
  • EPDM – solid EPDM edge trim profiles with sealing bulb or lip
  • EPDM – sponge EPDM edge trim profiles with sealing bulb or lip
  • Silicone – solid silicone edge trim profiles with sealing bulb or lip

Rubber materials

Materials used for edge trim and sealing profiles are suitable for different operating temperatures, chemical and environmental resistance and decoration.

 

Materials for the sealing lips and bulbs

  • sponge EPDM
  • sponge Nitrile (NBR)
  • sponge Neoprene (CR)
  • sponge silicone
  • solid EPDM
  • solid Nitrile
  • solid silicone

Colors for the sealing lips and bulbs

  • Black
  • Grey
  • Chrome
  • Silicone is available in black, white, blue, red and ohe

Carrier and insert materials

Carriers are made of steel with broken or unbroken bridges or steel wire.

Metal carrier cover materials

Carriers outer covers are made form different materials or different operating temperature and chemical and environmental resistance:

  • PVC
  • EPDM
  • NBR ( Nitrile or Buna N )
  • Silicone

Selection

Follow these steps to determine the right edge trim and sealing profile:

  • Function : flange protection, top seal, side seal
  • Bending radius
  • Clamping range
  • Operating temperature and chemical resistance for rubber edge sealing and edge protection profiles

Bending radius

The bending radius differs for rubber edge trim and sealing profiles and depends on the profile dimensions. Please check before selecting.

Clamping range (sheet thickness)

There are similar rubber edge trim and sealing profiles available with different clamping ranges to accomodate the thickness of the edge, flange or lip the edge profile is mounted on.

Operating temperature and chemical resistance

  • EPDM is used for temperatures between -40 and + 120°C when chemical and weather resistance is vital.
  • PVC and Nitrile are used for oil resistance
  • Silicone is used for temperatures between -40 and + 180°C, it offers excellent weather resistance.

Keeping up with COVID-19

This rapidly evolving corona-virus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal. Governmental orders in the fight against the spread of the corona-virus (COVID-19) lead to the partial or complete closing of several production lines or designation of lines for the production of crucial parts for essential industries like food and pharma. As a direct result confirmed or usual lead times may not be met. In the current situation the delay cannot be determined. With the closing of factories in certain areas we need to make some changes to standard terms. To can keep operational and safeguard our financial position we must change certain terms. These will be announced and confirmed upon receipt of orders. Apologies for the inconvenience. Take care of yourself so you can take care of others!!
