EPDM Gasket

The gasket integrated into the lid is made of EPDM, a synthetic rubber known for its elasticity, impact resistance, and stretch resistance. This material grants the IP55 certification, ensuring the containers retain and prevent the permeation of water and dust, thereby protecting the contents stored inside. Additionally, EPDM offers high thermal resistance, typically withstanding temperatures ranging from -50°C to 150°C.

Double Material Closing Latches

The presence of latches on every side of the box ensures integral closure. These latches are made of double materials: Nylon 6 (PA6) for the rigid part and SEBS (Thermoplastic Elastomer) for the soft part. They offer extreme manageability and a secure grip, even at low temperatures and in the presence of water or humidity.

Nylon 6 (PA6)

PA6 is a plastic material known for its excellent mechanical properties, even at low temperatures, and outstanding wear resistance. It retains its performance even when subjected to continuous stress or strain and finds applications in various sectors such as mechanical, food, chemical, thermal, and electrical.

Thermoplastic Elastomer (SEBS)

SEBS is an incredibly versatile material known for its elasticity, flexibility, and ability to absorb shocks and vibrations. It is also non-toxic, making it suitable for a wide range of products including seals, soft handles for tools, toys, sporting goods, and automotive components.


The combination of high-performance materials with EPDM seals makes Alstora storage boxes resistant to mold, pests, odors, and other external agents. Alstora prioritizes your safety and the protection of your belongings. Each product is proudly Made in Italy and comes with a 10-year guarantee.
