How to maintain automotive rubber seal strips

The maintenance of automotive rubber seal strips includes regular cleaning, applying protective agents, inspecting cracks and damage.
Regularly clean the rubber seal strips with automotive cleaners and apply high-penetration protective agents to prevent aging. Pay attention to cleaning the seams between the rubber seal parts to prevent sand and dust from accumulating and causing rust or damage. For vehicles with a sunroof, ensure that the seal strips for the window glass and body are in good condition to prevent leaks. If the seal strips have cracks or breaks, they can be repaired with special adhesives, but if the damage is severe, replacement is recommended.
In addition, avoid direct exposure to sunlight or extreme temperatures, and avoid using materials that may damage rubber, such as petroleum jelly (especially for sunroof seal strips), as prolonged use may cause the seal strips to harden and shorten their lifespan.
