Improve commercial glazing seal performance with Santoprene™ TPV
Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) provide durability, longevity and exceptional sealing performance in curtain wall, storefront, architectural window and skylight weatherseal applications. Available in general purpose, UV and fire-retardant grades, they deliver performance that has been proven for more than two decades in landmark commercial buildings worldwide.
Resilient, long-lasting seals
The low compression set and improved stress relaxation of Santoprene TPV, compared to EPDM or alternatives, produces effective seals for long-term performance even in extremely low temperatures. With its excellent weatherability, it resists hardening and cracking with age. Santoprene TPV provides protection against acids, bases, cleaners and pollutants.
Precise fit and design flexibility
Santoprene TPV provides excellent design flexibility, supported by coextrusion options and better colorability than EPDM or Neoprene seals. The tight tolerances maintain the profile dimensions for consistent sealing pressure, job to job. The profiles can be easily installed.
Using less, delivering more
Santoprene TPV can help you reduce overall waste in the manufacturing process as the scrap produced during processing can be recycled. Time and cost savings can be achieved with heat welded corners as no adhesives or molded corners are required.
The excellent sealability of Santoprene TPV commercial glazing seals lead to high design pressure ratings for the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) air and water infiltration standards and low U-values for National Fenestration Rating Council (NNFC) test standards.
