old casement felt compression stripping

A handy person from Colorado says:
Hello,

I am looking for a replacement weather stripping for older casement windows. The original felt type of stripping can not be removed from the metal holder without force. It will not slide out. So I will need a replacement that will include replacing the metal fast. Could I use a compression type rubber gasket or should I use felt type? See pictures.

here are the measurements.

The width of fin is 6 mm (0.2362 inch)
The width of the fin plus metal fast is 7mm (0.2756 inch)
The height is 6mm (0.2362 inch) , excluding metal fast (1MM)

Thank you for your help

Hey, Joe. We don't have this exact seal, but look at our 58-053. This may work for you as a replacement.

Hi Paul,

The replacement looks to fit, but I will test it first. But do you thing this bubble seal will provide the same or better insulation ability as the old felt material?

Yes, we find both types of seal work equally well at getting the job done.
