Santoprene(reg) thermoplastic rubber is fully vulcanized and provides sealability and weatherability. It is used in the Fiat Punto for the semi-dynamic interior belt line seals. In addition to the system's sealability, weatherability, and flocked surface quality and performance, interior belt lines made from Santoprene rubber also offer improved aesthetics, low scrap rate, and 100% recyclability. The lines also eliminate the assembly option required by the previously used EPDM profile.
