Key points to consider

If a designer can keep 3 key points in mind, it will benefit the sealing performance of the part:

  1. Wider bead widths generally have higher sealing performance – larger sealing faces
  2. Higher compression levels increase sealing performance
  3. Harder foam will generally improve sealing performance

However the constraints of the part design; i.e. part flexibility, span and size of fixing points, wall thickness etc. all play a contributing factor.
