weather strips prevent the entry of wind, water and dust into the car, and its main role is to provide comfort and security to passengers of the vehicle versus the abovementioned factors. It also plays an important role in the beauty and decorative adaptability of car design. Two types of sealing systems are used in vehicle design.
- Rubber sealing tapes
- TPE sealing tapes
Why did TPE sealing tapes have replaced rubber ones?
- Recyclability to manufacturing cycle
- Complex and pollutant production process of rubber tires
- Featureless quality of tires
- Reducing weight of the TPE in the rubber tuning, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions to the environment
- Reducing the use of metal to create rigidity
