Manufacturers of thermoplastic extrusions, like us, point to the durability of TPE's as an environmental bonus.
The argument is pretty simple: window seals made from other materials warp over time. Warped seals create air leaks in your building, which of course means your HVAC units are now working harder. Not only that, you also have to replace the seals, consuming more energy and waste in the production of the new seals. TPE parts, on the other hand, preserve their factory quality for much longer and under much harsher treatment.
It's a good pitch, right? Except for us, it's not just a sales tactic. Reed Rubber Products really does work hard to minimize our impact on the environment even before we ship your part. Some examples:
Do these efforts come at the expense of the quality of our work? Absolutely not!
Like all manufacturers, our reputation depends on the parts we produce. And the same attention to detail that we bring to our extrusions drives our effort to improve in every other area. You can check out some of our latest production improvements on the capability page.
