Claytonrite window rubber, also known as Claytonrite weatherstripping, is a type of rubber weatherstripping commonly used in the construction of windows and doors. It is a copyright brand name of the Seal Extrusion Company and has been produced since the early 20th century.
Claytonrite weatherstripping consists of a flexible, rubber section with slots on either side for glass or plastic on one side and metal frame or fibreglass etc on the other. A rubber locking insert locks the seal tightly against both mounting and glass to insure a watertight seal.
The benefits of using Claytonrite weatherstripping include improved insulation, reduced air and water infiltration, and increased energy efficiency. It is also easy to install and inexpensive, making it a popular choice for camper van conversion, marine and industrial use.
To install Claytonrite weatherstripping, the old weatherstripping should be removed and the groove where the new weatherstripping will be installed should be cleaned and dried thoroughly. The new weatherstripping can then be inserted into the groove, starting at one end, and working gradually around the perimeter of the window. A small amount of lubricant, such as silicone spray, can be applied to the weatherstripping to help it slide into place more easily.
In marine situations you can also apply a bead of clear silicone around both slots to give an improved watertight seal.
Overall, Claytonrite weatherstripping is a reliable and effective option for improving the energy efficiency and comfort of whatever you fit to.
It is only available from the seal extrusion company as true claytonrite and not just a copy or compatible with! It comes in a variety of sizes and shapes to fit diverse types of applications.
