Additional information about the usage of self-adhesive rubber gaskets.

Which material - EPDM or silicone - is better for a rubber gasket? Both materials are soft and flexible. Self-adhesive strips are only manufactured from EPDM rubber.

How to choose the right size rubber gasket?

The choice of the rubber gasket profile depends on the place to be packed and on how large or changeable the gaps are. Too thin rubber gasket will make the compaction inefficient but, if it is too thick, the windows and doors will be difficult to close. A good way how to determine the size of gaps is to stuff a small piece of plasticine into a window or a door and then measure the thickness of the squeezed plasticine. 

How to start work?

First of all, all old gaskets, cramps and other foreign bodies must be removed. The places where a gasket is to be glued must be cleaned carefully with a cloth or a sponge that is soaked with acetone.

Where must a rubber gasket be glued?


Windows


A rubber gasket is glued to the window opening


A rubber gasket is glued to the window leaf


On the window part that opens inwards the premises (that is above the hinges) rubber gaskets are glued in the groove of the window leaf. Below the hinges the rubber gasket is glued to the outer part of window frame.


 

Doors


For doors a rubber gasket is glued to the door opening.


All three profiles K, P and D are suitable for both windows and doors. Measure the gap and choose the required profile.

How to fasten self-adhesive rubber gaskets correctly?

1) Use the together patched rubber gaskets as a measuring-tape and measure the precise height of windows and doors without stretching them. Separate the rubber gaskets one from another.
2) After that detach the end of protective paper and press the rubber gasket to the upper corner as close as possible.
3) Continue detaching the protective paper bit by bit at the same time pressing the rubber gasket without stretching it.
4) Fasten the horizontal rubber gaskets the same way.
5) Check whether the rubber gaskets are fastened precisely at the corners.
