Glazing seals  

The global population is rising significantly, especially in urban areas, creating a growing need for well-built buildings and infrastructure. The number of households and commercial buildings will increase rapidly in the coming decades, driving demand for building materials. In meeting this demand, the building and construction industry needs to balance a number of trends, including higher performance, increased durability, improved safety, better aesthetics, reduced maintenance, greater energy efficiency, reduced material use and waste, and lower costs.

To meet this challenge we have developed thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) to meet the needs of demanding applications.

Applications and benefits

Commercial glazing seals require durability, longevity and exceptional sealing performance for curtain wall, storefront, architectural window and skylight weatherseal applications. Available in standard, UV and fire-retardant grades, TPVs deliver performance that has been proven for decades in landmark commercial buildings worldwide.

  • Resilient, long-lasting seals
  • Precise fit and design flexibility
  • Using less, delivering more

Recommended products:

Residential glazing seals require seal recovery and toughness for exceptionally low air and water infiltration ratings for the life of window and door systems. Available in standard, UV and fire-retardant grades, TPVs have been used worldwide for decades for thousands of bulb seals, and foamed profiles for residential window and door seal and glazing applications.

  • Outstanding seal recovery
  • Tough, resilient, long-lasting seals
  • Design flexibility
