Improve residential weather sealing performance with Santoprene™ TPV
Residential glazing seals made from Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) feature outstanding seal recovery and toughness for exceptionally low air and water infiltration ratings for the life of window and door systems.
Available in general purpose, UV and fire-retardant grades, Santoprene TPV has been used worldwide for more than two decades for thousands of bulb seals and foamed profiles for residential window and door seal, and glazing applications.
Resilient, long-lasting seals
The low compression set of Santoprene TPV produces effective seals and shape retention for long-term performance even at extreme temperatures. With its excellent weatherability it resists crazing and cracking, even after millions of cycles of flexing at extreme temperatures(-51°C to 135°C / -60°F to 275°F). Santoprene TPV provides excellent ozone and chemical resistance.
Santoprene TPV provides excellent design flexibility, supported by coextrusion options and is easily colored. It can be foamed, chemically or physically. The tight tolerances maintain the profile dimensions for consistent sealing pressure, job to job. The profiles can be easily installed.
The excellent sealability of Santoprene TPVs residential 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.
