Rubber extrusions are used in a wide variety of settings — but there are few places where they can be more valuable than in the construction industry. Rubber extrusions can provide environmental barriers, help maintain the structural integrity of a building, and more. Here’s a closer look at what our rubber extrusions have to offer.
Common Examples of Rubber Extrusions in Construction
Rubber extrusions are used for a variety of construction needs, such as weatherstripping, glazing, door and window seals, edge trim, and expansion joints. For example, expansion joints help relieve pressure from natural expansion and contraction on building materials. Rubber d-sections are used to fill voids and gaps, as well as control noise and vibrations in window and door seals.
These and other extrusions must be designed to meet the unique performance requirements of finished buildings, such as exposure to extreme temperatures, direct sunlight, rain, and other hazards.
Rubber extrusions can also play a helpful role during construction work. For example, rubber pipe seals and ramps can protect exposed cables, pipes, and electrical conduits from damage during construction work. Having these protective extrusions in place can prevent leaks and other damage that would cause delays and affect the profitability of work.
