Come See Us At The Glass Build Show
Vip Rubber and Plastic is pleased to announce that we’re exhibiting at GlassBuild America in Las Vegas,
Nevada from October 18 to 20, 2022 (Booth #8174). It’s the largest trade and networking event for the
glass, window, and door industry in the Western Hemisphere.
How We Help The Glass Industry
Vip makes rubber and plastic extrusions for glass enclosures, windows, displays, shower doors, and more. Our products include bulb seals, setting blocks, glazing beads and seals, U-channels, drip seals and rails, and snap-on rounds – just to name a few.
Visitors to the Vip booth at GlassBuild America can talk to our team and learn how we solve customer
For example, when Monsanto first released Santoprene™, a thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV),
Vip quickly recognized its benefits and shared the material’s specifications with our customers.
Santoprene™, a vulcanized ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber in a polypropylene (PP)
thermoplastic matrix, behaves like a rubber but has the processing and recycling advantages of plastics.
Santoprene™ also has good compression set, better high and low temperature resistance than EPDM,
and strong resistance to sunlight. In addition, this thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) can resist high heat
(302°F) with very little change in its physical properties. During extended testing (1,000 hours), it is also
superior to EPDM. Importantly, TPVs like Santoprene™ can be processed in a plastic extruder. Plus, the
scrap can be reground and reused to reduce waste.
Vip can create almost any standard or custom extruded plastic profile needed.
Solutions in Action
Dean Gillespie, Vice President of Technical Sales, at Vip Rubber, was excited to learn about this TPV
when it first became available. Dean shared the specs with an architectural engineer who worked for
one of the nation’s largest banks. The engineer approved the material for a bank project in Torrance,
California. Dean also shared Santoprene™ details with a provider of architectural glass façade systems
and with a supplier of architectural building products.
Since then, Vip has extruded TPV glazing seals for countless commercial construction projects. From
curtain walls and storefronts to architectural windows and skylights, we’ve provided weather-resistant
sealing solutions to customers across the country and around the world – and in some challenging
