One of our multiple profile sections is the D-Section profile. Its name is derived from its resemblance to the letter “D” in a cross-sectional view of the profile.

The D-Section is a profile used to fill voids and gaps across multiple applications and markets. Common applications of D-Section profiles are as weather seals on doors and windows. D-Section profiles can also create a seal between two different surfaces. To keep them in place, D-Section profiles typically have a pressure-sensitive adhesive on the bottom of the profile.

At ELBEX, we can manufacture standard D-Section profiles or create customized D-Section products based on your specific needs.

Some of the more common applications include:

  • Pipe ramps
  • Silicone sheeting
  • Expansion joints
  • Gaskets
  • Hinge Covers
  • Door and window seals
  • Cushion for components
  • Weatherstripping
  • Glazing
  • Edge trim
  • Door and window seals
