Gaskets are used in a broad range of applications and are the most tested and widely used sealing technique in the industry. In the assembly of windows, EPDM Gaskets are an excellent seal, placed in between two structures to aid the function of a product in a number of uses. In this article, we’ll look at what these applications are and why EPDM Gaskets are important to the windows industry.

EPDM Gaskets: weather stripping and glazing seals

Weather stripping could be considered the most common use for gaskets in the application of windows – they’re used for padding out the area between the window and body panel and help to seal against wind, rain and other adverse weather conditions that may affect the function of the window.
