VW Beetle Rubber Seals


Structure of VW Beetle Rubber Seals

VW Beetle rubbers seals, like all good automobile rubber seals, must be fabricated from ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber in order to cope with the exposure that rubber seals have. The lifetime of a rubber seal will depend largely on its chemical structure. The hardness of the rubber seal must also be optimized for the elasticity required. This depends on whether it is a large rubber seal that wraps around a window, or a small molded rubber piece, such as a door wedge seal or a short rubber seal that does not need to be stretched.

VW Beetle Window Rubber Seals

Our VW Beetle window rubber seals are either German made or else the finest American rubber seal reproductions available. We have been providing Volkswagen Beetle rubber seals for forty three years and we base our seal purchases on our experience with the many rubber seal providers out there. We do not offer "third world" rubber seals as we have the VW Beetle world's experience history of problems with them. The hardness ("duro") and elasticity of our VW Beetle rubber seals is optimum and the seals are time tested in thousands of VW Beetle restorations over our forty plus years in business.

VW Beetle Rubber Seal Packages

We have supplied rubber seals to Volkswagen Beetle restorers doing "ground up" restoration requiring most, or all, of the rubber seals for their Beetle. And we have supplied smaller packages of rubber seals. Over the years we have tried to group Beetle rubber seals into packages of popular selections. However our customer needs vary so that packages are now offered as custom rubber seal packages based on request. If you require multiple Beetle rubber seals, please list the seals and send us an email or call our VW rubber guru, Kevin, and we will quote you on your own Beetle rubber seal needs.

Cal Look versus American Style VW Beetle Window Seals

Cal Look Beetle rubber window seals are much more popular than the American style rubber window seals. The Cal Look rubber seal has a solid rubber outer wall. The American Style rubber seal has a groove into which a molding is inserted. The American style seals are requested typically by the enthusiast whose wishes are to have absolutely authentic VW rubber seals in his or her Beetle, including for entry into Beetle shows. The Cal Look Beetle rubber seal will last at least as long and is easier to work with than the "American" style rubber seal. In some years and areas of the Beetle the Cal Look is original (for example in the convertible rear window rubber seals for the Beetle after mid 1975.) We recommend the Cal Look rubber seals for practical purposes, and of course stock the American style Beetle seals for those Beetle owners who want the American style rubber seals where original and where the owner desires absolute originality.
