Jaeger-UniTek Introduces New AquaDiverter™ for Use in Patented Flip ‘N Seal® Sealing System

September 26, 2022

Jaeger-UniTek Sealing Solutions proudly announced the new AquaDiverter™ for use in combination with its’ Flip ‘N Seal® sealing system in recreational vehicle slide-out rooms.

According to Kyle Upp, Jaeger-UniTek RV Market Manager, “many OEM customers have converted to Jaeger’s patented, integrated, one-component, slide-out sealing system that improves installation assembly operations, reduces SKUs and required floor storage space, and ultimately, eliminates slide-out room leaks. Our system has been adopted at such a rapid rate over the past two years during the pandemic that our customers began to ask us to invent a novel “corner cup” which effectively directs water from our seal to the exterior of the vehicle. It was a natural extension for our engineering team to invent the AquaDiverter™ which is designed to perfectly mate geometrically to our slide-out seal for a seamless transition”.

Jaeger-UniTek company officials confirmed that the AquaDiverter™ (patent pending) will be on display, along with their full range of integrated, one-component slide-out seals at the Elkhart RV Dealer Open House on September 26-30, 2022.

Jason Cackley, Jaeger-UniTek Lead Application Engineer, added “our experience in evaluating, testing and specifying proven engineered thermoplastic polymers for automotive sealing applications significantly contributes to our team’s ability to create new RV sealing technologies for water management applications. This expertise, combined with our RV Flip ‘N Seal® product line, played a significant role with inventing the AquaDiverter™. Some novel design examples include the use of stiffening ribs for increased flexural modulus to withstand demanding loads and impacts, while creating a “water-less” cup by incorporating a sloped bottom surface and “water troughs” for efficient water management. Of course, our customers really appreciate that we created an angled lip to mate seamlessly to Jaeger’s unique bottom pan geometries for sole source responsibility for their RV slide-out room sealing.”
