Semperit Profiles exhibiting at Fensterbau FRONTALE
This year, as in previous years, Semperit Profiles will once again be exhibiting at Fensterbau FRONTALE in Nuremberg from 16 to 19 March. Semperit Profiles started the new year with a new corporate form following the merger of Semperit Profiles Deggendorf GmbH and the recently acquired Semperit Profiles Leeser GmbH & Co. KG. The merger allowed both companies to fuse their existing skills and competences into one successful unit with a comprehensive range of premium gasket profiles to fully satisfy the requirements of the market. The gasket specialist’s extensive product portfolio includes gasket profiles with comparatively simple geometries for PVC windows, complex co-ex EPDM and foam rubber gaskets for aluminium windows, and frame gaskets for façades.
In 2015, the 400 employees at the 3 Semperit Profiles sites in Deggendorf, Hückelhoven-Baal and Wegberg-Dalheim produced just under 500 million metres of gasket profiles. For the coming years, it has set its sights even higher.
Semperit Profiles will be presenting an innovation at Fensterbau FRONTALE that could be regarded as a revolution in the gasket manufacturing market.
World first in gasket technology
For over a decade, the market has attempted to combine the proven material benefits of EPDM gaskets with excellent processing qualities to create a new generation of gasket technology. Semperit Profiles is proud to report that it has done just that! The results will be presented to the trade visitors at FRONTALE.
Foam rubber in unparalleled complexity and quality
A further focus of the exhibition will be on gaskets made of foam rubber. In order to optimise thermal processes, windows and façade manufacturers are increasingly turning to gaskets that are partly or even wholly composed of foam rubber. In addition to their proven insulating properties, the many benefits of foam rubber profiles include excellent resistance to ageing and high elasticity at minimal closing forces. As industry leader, Semperit Profiles offers outstanding R&D expertise and quality in foam rubber profiles.
