Automotive Seals & Trims
Rubber seals are used extensively within the automotive industry for sealing doors, boots, bonnets and windows. Over time these seals can be attacked by the environment or damaged so should be replaced to keep your vehicle weathertight. There is no way of rejuvenating rubber once it has deteriorated so replacing the profile with a similar section is often the only solution. Seals Direct specialise in the supply of rubber seals and trims for vintage cars, classic cars, kit cars, customs and some modern day vehicles.
Our seals and trims are typically used on vehicles such as Jaguars, Morris Minors, MGs, Land Rovers, Triumphs and Minis. However, we have also supplied seals for use on modern vehicles, such as Ford and VW, which use generic sealing profiles.
Common Automotive Seals & Trims
The seal around your boot or bonnet are designed to stop water entering your vehicle and damaging the interior. Car boots and bonnets are normally fitted with clip on edge trims with top seals or stick on sponge sections. Our large range of profiles will allow you to find a suitable replacement for your existing seal.
All of our products are manufactured using high quality raw material compounds to ensure they provide a long lasting sealing solution. The majority of our seals for use in the automotive industry are manufactured using either sponge or solid EPDM. EPDM offers good UV stability and resistance to weathering whilst providing a neat sealing solution for instances where the product will be visible.
Custom Automotive Seals & Trims
We offer a bespoke design and manufacturing service if your sealing requirements cannot be met by one of our standard products. Our 3D CAD facilities allow us to work directly with Design Engineers to identify the best sealing solution for your project. We are able to reverse engineer your existing seal and extrude an exact replica in a variety of materials, colours and hardnesses. Minimum production runs are as low as 30 metres depending on the required material and construction.
Seals Direct are also a leading supplier of bespoke mouldings and gaskets. Depending on the seal and application our rubber mouldings are manufactured using either compression or injection moulding in a variety of materials and hardnesses. We are able to stamp bespoke gaskets from both sponge and solid materials from one off to large production runs.
