Automotive

With more than 30 years of experience in high-quality design and material development for OEM and Tier 1 in the premium segment, Poppe has proven its worth as a reliable development and series supplier.
Our core competences include seals for vehicle bodies and components for the engine compartment, fresh air intake, doors and flaps, and for draining dirty water from the roof and tank filling areas.

Engine Hood Seals

  • High-temperature resistant, multi-component profiles with features including integrated reinforcement of the mounting foot and functional paint finish of the sealing surface
  • Attachment of moulded parts to optimally reflect engine hood geometry
  • Functionality in a broad range of temperatures from -40 °C to +150 °C, high resistance to temperature cycling

Poppe engine hood seals are synonymous with innovative product design and application-specific material development. Among other things, they play an essential role in stable thermal management in the engine compartment and prevent exhaust gas and vapor from entering the vehicle’s fresh air system.

Water Tank Seals

  • Multi-component profiles with features including integrated stretch protection and functional paint finish of the sealing surface
  • Media resistance against cleaning and conservation media
  • High noise insulation between engine and vehicle interior

Water tank seals are used for the targeted drainage of rainwater, meltwater and washer fluid from the windshield. The main aim is to prevent exhaust gas and vapor from entering the fresh air system. Thanks to our wide range of process technologies and our broad portfolio of materials, we are involved in water tank development right from the start.

Door Joint Seals

  • Multi-component profiles with integrated mounting system (adhesives, clips, fasteners) and functional/visible paint finish of the sealing surfaces
  • Media resistance against cleaning and protective medias

Poppe door joint seals are used to protect the entrance area of the vehicle against dirt deposits and to absorb driving noise, thereby increasing passenger comfort. Thanks to our intelligent design concept combining sealing and mounting functions, we are positioned as a reliable development partner for the automotive industry.

Water Drain Hoses

  • Water drain hoses for draining the sunroof area
  • Attachment of injection-moulded parts creates integrated seal between wet area and interior
  • Optimized flow thanks to special hose geometries

Although not in sight, water drain hoses play a major role in ensuring the functionality of the sunroof and passenger comfort. The water drain hose, which is partially integrated into the body shell, directs rainwater, meltwater and washer fluid from the sunroof system to the wet area of the vehicle (e.g. the wheelhouse) quickly and silently.

Commercial Vehicles

We equip trucks, buses, construction and agricultural vehicles with our products. We also produce door seals for rail vehicles. These profiles reliably seal against airstream, splash water and dirt. Supplemented by switching systems, they help protect passengers. We develop special compounds based on the latest regulations and standards that comply with EN 45545, among others.

Trucks

  • Multi-component profiles for commercial vehicles
  • Applications include window, semitrailer and hatch seals
  • Profile frames using state-of-the-art injection moulding

Buses

  • Multi-component profiles for scheduled road transport services
  • Applications include window profile frames, finger protection profiles, door profiles and wheel arch brushes
  • Continuous production of sealing profiles with features including integrated strip brushes

Multi-components from Poppe are used in buses as window profile frames, trailer seals and hatch seals. Innovative manufacturing technologies enable us, among other things, to continuously produce wheel arch brushes.

Railway Transport

  • Multi-component profiles for local and long-distance passenger railway transport
  • Profile frames using state-of-the-art injection moulding
  • Materials certified in accordance with EN 45545-2

Railway profiles from Poppe are used for numerous applications within the railway industry, including as window profile frames, finger protector profiles and door profiles in local and long-distance passenger railway transport Our proprietary materials – certified in accordance with EN 45545-2 – allow us to develop high-end profiles in accordance with strict quality standards. Window profile frames are made using state-of-the-art injection moulding.
