Our diverse RV seals use the most advanced technology and non-cellular TVP (thermoplastic vulcanite polymer) to outperform the EPDM extrusions that are commonly used for most RV slide outs. Most of the EPDM seals you will find being sold by other retailers are often over-compressed by manufacturers looking for a tighter seal.
Additionally, EPDM seals have an open cell structure that you cannot compress more than 30%. However, manufacturers still compress seals by as much as 70% in slide-out applications. As a result, the EPDM seals’ open cell structure causes them to break down easily and quickly, causing your seals to fail and start leaking as a result. These RV seals also become brittle easily and shrink.
The Best RV Seals
All the RV seals you will find listed below are effective at protecting your recreational vehicle. They include wipe seals and slide-out bulb seals that you can compress by up to 70% and still enjoy their service over the lifetime of your recreational vehicle.
These RV seals also have no cell structure. Therefore, you can be sure that they will not break down due to weathering or to exposure to the elements. Additionally, since they lack collapsible air pockets, you can be sure that the compression set never occurs. In fact your RV seal will bounce back easily and effortlessly without compromise. This is actually the main reason why we only stock extrusions for slide-outs that are more durable, elastic and able to perform exceedingly well over the long term.
Most of the EPDM extrusions you will come across in the market place are cellular in nature. They have small pockets of air within the rubber. With the passage of time, the cells will burst and break down. The pocket will also collapse, meaning that your RV seals will lose their capabilities to bounce back. As a result, they will be compressed permanently, thereby compromising your seal and have to ensure endless and unstoppable leaking.
Top-Quality, Professional Grade RV Seals
RV seals are important to the overall integrity of your holiday home. This is why automobile companies, individuals, and other dealers in recreational vehicles come to us to get high quality professional-grade RV seals. Used for doors, these thermoplastic seals actually have no cells. This means that the compression set won’t occur and you won’t have to deal with pockets of air that might collapse. In the long run, our extrusions will provide your RV seals with the performance and durability you need to ensure your RV runs smoothly and perfectly in an environment that is sealed 100%.
You can attach any of the following RV seals using proprietary thermal bonding systems or by the usual standard clip system. Alternatively, use HATS (heat – activated acrylic tape systems) to seal your recreational vehicle with TPV materials for a bond more reliable than you would get with the standard tape.
We also have slide-out wipe RV seals with slip coats that you can use to reduce the tension on your recreational vehicle. These seals will provide you with the low-friction, smooth and endearing wiping action required for longer lasting, more reliable RV seals.
