Product Information

EPDM Sponge Tailgate Seal 10mm x 20mm

This EPDM sponge tailgate seal 10mm x 20mm is a highly durable sealing solution. It is ideal for use as a tailgate seal on MGB as well as other model classic vehicles. The part number for the original seal which our product replaces is AHH 7833 M. When we create new versions of older parts we always try to stay as true to the original shape and size as possible. This ensures that your new seal installs easily, requiring no extra parts. It also ensures that our seal provides the same, if not superior levels of sealing. We do, however, try to explore higher quality materials for use in the manufacturing process. This enables our product to last longer, without showing signs of warping as well as deterioration.

The base of this particular seal has a maximum width of 10mm and a height of 4.8mm. We manufacture the base from a solid EPDM rubber which gives the sponge top a solid surface to increase sealing capabilities. The base has a shore A hardness value of 70° which means it is a relatively firm rubber. The solid base also provides a rigid structure running throughout the length of the strip which helps to reduce any potential warping. The sponge top section has a maximum width of 7mm and a height of 15.2mm. These measurements should be taken as the maximum size of this product as the high compression rate allows this product to easily fit in areas smaller than this. While compressing, the product will fill any irregularities or uneven surfaces to provide a tight and secure seal.

We have a wide selection of sponge extrusions in a variety of different shapes and sizes to fit any application. Click here to view our full sponge profile section.

Durable and Easy to Install

We design this product specifically to be able to withstand a variety of impacts while still maintaining its original shape.

We manufacture this product from a high-quality EPDM rubber due to the unique properties the material offers. EPDM offers outstanding resistance to heat, ozone, as well as weather while also offering good resistance to both polar substances and steam. EPDM also has excellent electrical insulating properties while being able to withstand a range of chemicals from ketones, ordinary diluted acids, to alkalis. All of these factors ensure that you can use this product in a wide variety of applications, requiring little to no maintenance.
