Product Description

The Rubber Company offer a wide selection of highly durable self grip door seal profiles. Our door seals provide a water as well as airtight seal around any door or hatch. The self-gripping U clip is easily pressed over the edge of the door and is held in place without adhesive due to the natural gripping force of the product. Our door seals are available in a variety of sizes as standard to suit any requirement.

Many of our door seals feature a solid steel core which reinforces the seal and ensures the seal is able to hold its shape even after a long period of use. This ensures that our seals offer the maximum possible sealing properties for longer. The high-quality rubber materials we use ensure that you can use our self grip door seal profiles in any interior or exterior application.

Compression Values

After installing our self grip door seal profiles it is important to ensure that the compression of the sponge part should not exceed a maximum of 50%. Exceeding this can greatly affect the overall compression and recovery of the product. An ideal compression rate should be between 30-40%, as this allows the product to return to its original state. If the sponge part of the profile has two sections then apply this value should to each section.

The crucial quality for sealing products is the enduring deformation. This essentially refers to how well the product recovers after you compress it at a specific temperature for a length of time. The most common characteristic is the compression set (DVR) ASTM D395. In order to determine this vale, the sponge part of the product is compressed by 25% and then stored at a set temperature for a predetermined period of time. After the product has been released and left at room temperature for 30 minutes, the height or width (depending on position) is measured and the enduring deformation can be identified. A DVR of 0 would indicate that the test body has reached its original height (unlikely in reality), a DVR of 100% shows that the test body has no recovery and would remain completely deformed.

This is important to note because as the sponge compresses it puts pressure on the seal. After an extended period of time the rubber can deform. If the DVR is too high the elasticity performance and sealing will decrease affecting the performance of the product.
