Now that we are moving toward the chilly winter season, it is important to keep our homes well-guarded against wind, moisture, and colder air. Door and window seals have long been used to protect one’s house against severe weather conditions, and traditionally, these types of seals are made out of vinyl or PVC. However, due to its strong high- and low-temperature resistance and durability, silicone is increasingly being used for door and window seal applications.
Silicone works well in freezing, sub-zero environments, and remains rubbery even in temperatures as low as -70° Celsius. Therefore, even in the most extreme cold, silicone seals will maintain their suppleness and never crack or disintegrate. And, unlike PVC, silicone doesn’t shrink or age in ultraviolet light, maintaining its form in every weather condition.
Due to its resistance to oxidation, UV-exposure, and ozone, silicone has become a leading candidate for many outdoor functions, and will help keep your home warm and cozy during the wintery season. Vanguard Products offers a full spectrum of extruded rubbery gaskets, seals, and hoses that can be customized for a wide variety of applications.
