Lord Corporation's newly introduced Autoseal 3500F is designed for use on dense EPDM glass run channel applications where abrasion and chemical resistance are required. The Autoseal 3500F coating offers low coefficient of friction, excellent glass drag properties and non-stick features to glass. Further, Lord Autoseal 3500F reduces squeak and itch noise that often results from automobile vibration and is problematic in many vehicles. Autoseal 3500F is the next generation of Autoseal 3500, a previous best practice product in the automotive weatherstrip market. The "F" version continues to provide the same performance properties and has the added benefit of being NMP-free, a key need for European suppliers, the company said.
