Vinyl Glazing Seals

Vinyl glazing seals are used widely in the commercial housing market to seal insulated glass for shower doors and wardrobe doors. Compared to U-channels for thin glass, they have thinner legs and angled, feet-like features. Vinyl is an abbreviation for polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a versatile and low-cost plastic.

With vinyl glazing seals, there is no room for play. Therefore, fixtures made of aluminum or other metals must be measured carefully before seals are run. Aluminum extruders and glass manufacturers have their own tolerances, and rubber and plastic window seals use different tolerances than these other materials.

Vinyl Glazing Seals vs. Santoprene Glazing Seals

Vinyl is considered to be the world’s most versatile plastic and is used in many applications. With its resistance to moisture and humidity, vinyl glazing seals are a good choice for sealing shower doors. The cost of vinyl is also relatively low and this polymer, unlike other plastics, is recyclable.

Most vinyl seals for shower doors and wardrobe doors use flexible PVC, which combines increased flexibility with good strength, high clarity, and abrasion resistance. Sometimes, Santoprene seals with the same profile are used instead. To promote gripping, all of these glass seals may have interior tongues.
