Steel and Wire Carrier in Sealing Profiles
Our sealing profiles and edge protections have a core (called "carrier") of metal to improve the grip on the material the product is attached to. The carrier may be one of three kinds:
The choice of either a steel or wire carrier largely depends on the application and the desired appearance. Therefore, practical tests are required in your particular application.
To assist you, we have in many cases included the estimated bending radius values for the profiles in question. These values are only an approximation based on practical tests and should serve as guidelines for you. The profiles can also be installed in narrower radii, but then the hose or the lip will deform significantly.
Compression for sealing edge protection profiles
The compression of our sealing edge protection profiles should be at maximum 50% of the "bubble". In practice, the profile should be compressed 30-40% in order to creating the best possible tension in the "bubble", for the best seal possible.
