Lauren designed a new seal for a commercial door application from a well-known window and door company. This company requested a seal that could slide into a channel, while also possessing great compression properties, durability, weather-ability and high temperature resistance. Lauren’s in-house R&D offered silicone material as the best solution, while Lauren’s application engineers worked on a dual durometer design for ease of installation and durability.
Although dual durometer processes are extruded every day at Lauren, using silicone material as a dual durometer is a new and exclusive process that Lauren developed and can now offer to its customers. Offering this solution keeps Lauren on the list of exclusive manufacturers. As industry needs change, Lauren is able to react with best practices and new technologies to solve the toughest problems.
A silicone dual durometer seal designed specifically for your application offers many benefits, including:
- Excellent Compression Set
- Extreme Temperature Ranges and Flexibility
- UV Resistance and Oxidation
- UL (Flammability)
- FDA Compliant and NSF Certified
- Standard and Custom Colors
