ILPEA has developed profiles and sealing systems for many different vehicle parts for several years. Profiles for the automotive industry have a dual purpose. They have a practical function by providing sealing, shock absorption and body protection. In addition, they play a very important aesthetic role as they enhance the vehicle design by visually linking different elements of the vehicle.
The profiles developed by ILPEA include extruded, moulded, co-moulded and painted profiles made from various materials such as polypropylene (PP), TPE, SEBS, soft or hard PVC, among others. In addition, the profiles combine with all types of fibres, aluminium combinations and metal supports, depending on the technical and aesthetic needs of the customer. ILPEA’s aim is to offer the sealing profiles that best suit the needs and specifications of its customers, always committed to protecting the environment and using recyclable and reusable products. The precision in the execution of this type of product is key to ensure that each part of the system meets the expected level of sealing.
These sealing profiles are used on vehicle windscreens, doors and sunroofs. Some of the most common locations for these products are in the sealing of windows, door and body side guards, or the seals that ensure proper bonnet sealing.
ILPEA pays the maximum attention to aesthetic and performance requirements from the earliest stages of product development, identifying and presenting the customer with the most suitable materials and technologies to meet their needs. ILPEA provide solutions and support to its customers during all phases, from the design of the profiles, through the choice of materials, compatibility testing, rapid prototyping, efficient manufacturing and shipment. Thanks to technological advances in the production of ILPEA products, the company is able to develop innovative systems for the future of the industry and to develop its products in a fully tailor-made way. Examples of ILPEA profiles can be seen in diverse car brands and models like for example in Tesla Model 3 & Model Y.
