VW Bus and Vanagon Seals


Structure of Rubber Seals

VW Bus (and VW Camper, Westfalia, Vanagon, etc.)rubbers seals, like all automobile rubber seals, must be fabricated from ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber in order to cope with the exposure that rubber seals such as your VW Bus 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 for the seals. This depends on whether it is a large rubber seal that wraps around a VW Bus window, or a small molded rubber piece.

VW Bus Window Rubber Seals

Our VW Bus (and all our VW air cooled car seals) window rubber seals are either German made or else the finest American rubber seals reproductions available. We do not offer "third world" rubber seals as we have the Volkswagen Bus owner world's experience with its history of problems with 'third world' rubber seals. The hardness ("duro") and elasticity of our VW Bus rubber seals is optimum and Bus seals have been time tested in hundreds of Volkswagen Bus restorations over our forty plus years in business.

VW Bus Rubber Seal Packages

We have supplied rubber seals to Volkswagen restorers doing "ground up" restoration requiring most, or all, of the rubber seals for their VW Bus. And we have supplied smaller packages of rubber seals for partial Bus restoration. Over the years we have tried to group VW Bus rubber seals into packages of popular selections. However our customer needs varied so much that packages are now offered as custom rubber seal packages based on request. If you require multiple VW Bus 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 VW Bus rubber seal needs.

Cal Look versus American Style VW Bus Window Seals

Cal Look VW Bus rubber seals are, by far, more popular than the American style rubber 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 Bus window rubber seals are requested mostly by the enthusiast whose wishes are to have absolutely authentic Bus rubber seals in his or her car, including for entry into shows ! The Cal Look Bus window seal will last at least as long and is easier to work with. We recommend the Cal Look rubber seals for practical purposes, and of course also stock the American style VW Bus window seals for those Bus owners who want the American style seal where original and where the owner desires absolute originality.
