Generally speaking, some aluminum alloy door and window sealing strips on the market are made of PVC. This is a material that has been eliminated in China, because this different material is not environmentally friendly and can be prone to aging. Nowadays, EPDM sealing tape is popular in the society, which is widely loved by consumers. Due to the relatively high cost of EPDM rubber companies, some black-hearted manufacturers are full of mud and deceive consumers with fakes. At this time, you have to keep your eyes open. How can you distinguish the true cause?
Aluminum alloy door and window sealing strip
1. Judging from the appearance
Observe whether the surface of the rubber strip is smooth and beautiful without jagged marks. Filled with soft PVC sealing strips, the surface is rough, non-bright, and deformed. In summer, whether the contact surface between the aluminum alloy door and window sealing strip and the profile is stained or discolored, yellowing and oily.
2. Judging from the feel
