About This D-Shaped Weather Stripping

This D-shaped sponge rubber seal, measuring .375" (w) by .250" (h), creates a moisture barrier, as well as a water-tight and air-tight seal between your substrate and the rubber. It seals out air leaks, moisture, dirt and debris. D-shaped weather stripping also reduces vibration and helps to cancel some noise.

You can use these D-shaped EPDM sponge rubber seals between a variety of two substrates that have even or uneven gaps, such as:

  • • Doors (house, garage, auto, RV
  • Car trunks
  • Windows
  • Hatches
  • Electrical enclosures
  • Coolers
  • Lids
  • And more

When you’re choosing between D-shaped sponge rubber seal sizes, choose the one that will provide 25-40% compression for your application. This will give you optimal seal performance, especially at 25% compression. Review the specs, adhesive, installation details, and more for this EPDM D-shaped rubber seal below.

3M™ BONDED TAPE SYSTEM 

The BT option for your self-adhesive rubber seal provides the ultimate bond to the rubber and the ultimate bond to the substrate. With 3M, D-shaped rubber seals can create a moisture barrier and air-tight seal. With the highest peel and sheer resistance, it can be used under high loads of stress and force. It has low initial tack for easy re-positioning during installation and needs 72 hours of cure time to come to full bond strength. It is rated for good heat performance between-20°F to 158°F.
