Car sunroof EPDM as one of seal strip for automotive applications, it has many advantages to protect sunroof, for distance, it resistance water, weather, corrosion. And then Sealing strip to fill the cap that between the wind and sunroof construction, what’s more, making sunroof to open easily.


Resistance water, rubber strip seal on roof frame to surround the wind and the rubber shape to ensure lock roof and no gap in there, this design theory to stop water into car, even on a rainy day , the rain runs down the roof of the car in the curve to reudce the bearing capacity of rubber.


Resistance corrosion, most of time parking car outside, the seal strip out of roof is easy to erode, in order to seal strip to break , in the sealing product process , factory stuff use EPDM rubber to produce sunroof sealing, for this synthetic rubber has good corrosive properties.


For different type car, sealing strip for sunroof own many different rubber section including size, shape, sometimes, it need to custom for specific car. EPDM heavy truck rubber seal become the preferred product for large vehicles.
