Construction and glazing seals  

Have we ever thought how one small glazing component can make or break a building?

Get it right, and you’ll have a long-lasting ‘landmark’ building everyone wants to be associated with. But get it wrong, and you’ll be plagued by air, water and noise infiltration problems.

Santoprene™ TPV offers all-weather resistance and long-lasting sealing performance for windows, door seals and gaskets in both residential and commercial buildings. With its unique combination of rubber performance and thermoplastic processing, Santoprene TPV is the construction and glazing seal gasket material of choice for long-term reliability and performance.

It’s also the solution for expansion joints in buildings when you need to absorb thermal expansion movement.

Sustainable choice

Unlike thermoset rubber (e.g. EPDM rubber), the sustainability opportunities provided by Santoprene TPV to help architects reach ‘green building’ label standards make it an excellent choice now and for the future.
