Truck, Trailer Weather Seals, & Gaskets
As the leading manufacturer of extruded profiles for trucks and trailers, Advanced Plastic has sealed up the transportation industry. Our transportation products have been used extensively by the largest and most prestigious U.S. truck and trailer manufacturers since we entered this market over 30 years ago.
Our story begins in the 80s when Met-L-Wood challenged us to transform a standard swing door trailer gasket. This challenge led to the creation of the dual durometer PVC seal, which is still widely used in the industry.
Advanced Plastic has built on this success, leveraging in-house tooling and strong customer relationships to develop innovative products and value-added solutions to the truck trailer industry.
Some of our dry freight and refrigerated truck trailer weather seal products include:
- Weather Seals
- Door Gaskets and Frames
- Covers / Liners
- Foam Dams
- Floor Insulators
- Floor Seals
- Headers / Sills / Jambs
- Wire Tracks
- Cove Molding
- Various Trim Profiles
