What are Q-Lon Gaskets?
Q-Lon gaskets are high-performance sealing components used in various applications, primarily in doors and windows. These gaskets are designed to create a reliable seal between moving or stationary parts, such as a door and its frame or a window and its sash, to prevent the passage of air, water, dust, and noise. Q-Lon gaskets are known for their effectiveness in maintaining energy efficiency and acoustic insulation in buildings.
Key characteristics of Q-Lon gaskets typically include:
- Temperature Range: They can operate effectively across a wide temperature range, ensuring a secure seal even in extreme weather conditions.
- Memory Recovery: Q-Lon gaskets have the ability to recover their original shape after compression, which helps maintain a consistent and reliable seal over time.
- Acoustic and Thermal Performance: They are designed to offer excellent acoustic and thermal insulation properties, contributing to energy efficiency and noise reduction in buildings.
- Durability: Q-Lon gaskets are engineered to be long-lasting, ensuring that they continue to provide effective sealing for extended periods.
- No Residue: They typically leave no rigid sprue or residue after welding or installation, ensuring a clean and aesthetically pleasing finish.
These gaskets are commonly used in residential and commercial construction, as well as in various industrial applications where reliable sealing is required. Their versatility and performance have made them a preferred choice for architects, builders, and manufacturers looking to enhance the energy efficiency, comfort, and soundproofing capabilities of their products and structures.
