Stretching The Conversation

Three people talking at an exhibition

Stretching gaskets was a major topic of conversation on the Extrudaseal stand which meant that the firm’s PremaSeal was also in the chatter.

PremaSeal was developed in 2020 using anti-stretch technology. FIT provided the first opportunity for customers to see the new gasket in person - and they were impressed with what they saw.


 “We always knew about the issue of stretching gaskets but the FIT Show made us realise it is even more widespread than we thought.”

Managing director, Extrudaseal



“Many of the people who visited our stand explained they were having issues with their existing seals shrinking or stretching. With PremaSeal we are able to provide them with the solution – and it went down a treat,” continued Byers. “Featuring anti-stretch technology which helps the seal stay in place, it offers fabricators a solution they can fit and forget without worrying about shrinking. This results in reduced site call backs to re-fit the gasket which not only makes windows and doors last longer, it also significantly reduces waste.”



“Customers in the past have explained how they’ve had to cut gaskets longer to account for shrinkage, but with PremaSeal you don’t have to do that, saving fabricators around 14 metres of gasket per 100 sashes, which is a sizeable reduction.”
