Prod­uct Press Release

[La Porte, Indi­ana] – Jaeger-UniTek Seal­ing Solu­tions, Inc. proud­ly announces the mar­ket intro­duc­tion of the Style­Cap™, an inno­v­a­tive, adhe­sive backed, cor­ner seal cov­er, designed to pre­cise­ly func­tion in secure­ly and repeat­ed­ly seal­ing recre­ation­al vehi­cle slide-out rooms from water, dust, and tem­per­a­ture intru­sion.  Accord­ing to com­pa­ny offi­cials, Style­Cap®, the newest com­po­nent of its’ patent­ed full pack­age Flip ‘N Seal® slide-out sys­tem, will be launched on new 2024 OEM models.

Colton Phe­lan, Vice Pres­i­dent of Sales, shared that their suc­cess in devel­op­ing and launch­ing lead­ing RV OEM plat­forms using the inte­grat­ed one-com­po­nent Flip ‘N Seal® seal­ing pack­age, prompt­ed Jaeger to cre­ate the Style­Cap®. This inno­v­a­tive addi­tion com­bines a seam­less, aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing fin­ish with enhanced seal­ing at slide-out cor­ners, meet­ing the demand for improved con­sumer styling and supe­ri­or seal­ing per­for­mance. Phe­lan went on to say, “It’s com­mon for OEM’s to use sil­i­cone to seal where the top and side wipes meet. How­ev­er, our Style­Cap elim­i­nates that need. The Style­Cap® achieves this by secure­ly adher­ing to the RV body while unique­ly con­nect­ing to the Flip ‘N Seal® slide-out seal.” Kyle Upp, Jaeger-UniTek’s RV Mar­ket Man­ag­er and a project leader for the Style­Cap® explains, “Where your top wipe and side wipe meet in the cor­ner, the Style­Cap® adheres and not only adds an addi­tion­al lay­er of pro­tec­tion but also cre­ates a “fin­ished-look” to your slide-out rooms.”

Ray Young, Chief Tech­nol­o­gy Offi­cer, added, “We were for­tu­nate to be chal­lenged by the demand­ing seal­ing require­ments in the auto­mo­tive indus­try for decades. This allowed us to define poten­tial water entry points, apply the best-in-class, proven, auto­mo­tive poly­mers that can with­stand ther­mal aging and ultra­vi­o­let light expo­sure, and ulti­mate­ly cre­ate nov­el part geome­tries that erad­i­cate water entry into the vehi­cle. We have incor­po­rat­ed our auto­mo­tive seal­ing knowl­edge into our RV full pack­age slide-out sys­tem and are very pleased to intro­duce the newest mem­ber of our Flip ‘N Seal slide-out seal­ing inven­tions to our val­ued RV customers.”

Jason Cack­ley, Jaeger-UniTek Lead Appli­ca­tion Engi­neer, com­ment­ed, “Our Style­Cap® is unique­ly designed to “flip” or “tuck” into our orig­i­nal­ly patent­ed Flip ‘N Seal tech­nol­o­gy, while pro­vid­ing a seam­less show room fin­ish for con­sumer aes­thet­ics. By uti­liz­ing proven auto­mo­tive-grade mate­ri­als, which have been exten­sive­ly test­ed in both lab­o­ra­to­ry UV and ther­mal aging cham­bers and com­bin­ing this with years of use in the most demand­ing loca­tions with­in the U.S., we are con­fi­dent that our Flip ‘N Seal full pack­age deliv­ers our cus­tomers war­ran­ty-free slide-outs and the low­est total cost of own­er­ship.  The Style­Cap® enhances our sys­tem and the mar­ket response has been impressive.”
