In the window and door industry, performance, durability and safety demands can be rigorous. Cooper Standard ISG stays on top of all relevant regulations, standards and certifications that can impact window and door manufacturers, ensuring that seals meet all requirements. We often work with partners on meeting demands including:
UL 10B & 10C
A stringent test for commercial doors slated for public buildings, Cooper Standard ISG has an outstanding track record of developing internal and external seals that beat the demanding and costly “furnace” tests, both under pressure and at ambient.
Cooper Standard ISG is continually working with our window and door partners on proving seal performance in light of commonly requested ASTM standards. For example, C-864 is commonly used, and we have a wide range of materials and durometers with a strong track record of demonstrated compatibility with wet caulking and other sealants in compression seal gaskets, setting blocks and spacer applications. Similarly, we have silicone materials that can meet all the demands of ASTM C-1115 and sponge rubber/cellular rubber materials pass the tests required by ASTM C-509.
Cooper Standard ISG keeps on top of the continually updated REACH Annex XV, Annex XIV, Annex XVII and SIN lists, ensuring that your materials remain compliant with regulations.
Cooper Standard ISG expertise can help maintain compliance with European efforts to reduce hazardous substance release throughout the product life cycle.
