Solvay: New Profile Line for TPO/TPV Weather Seals

Said to be the first of its kind, a production-scale profile coextrusion line for development of TPE automotive weather seals has been installed by Solvay Engineered Polymers at its Automotive Applications Development Center.The line will be used to test seals composed of a TPO backbone with a TPV sealing surface as replacements for thermoset rubber. The Davis-Standard system has three extruders with diameters of 3.5, 2.5, and 1.5 in. The smallest extruder can apply a slip coat or cosmetic cap layer. Tel: (248) 391-9500, www.solvayenginee
