PTFE-Based Sealing Material
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions announced its Turcon Variseal PTFE-based system that is compatible with virtually all chemical media. Combined with optimal wear resistance and friction characteristics, it has the ability to withstand extreme operating temperatures. The system is energized with a spring fitted into the seal profile that is fully enclosed within a case so there is no possibility of metal extractables entering the system. Turcon MF is a material which has been engineered for super clean environments. These compounds are produced from high purity PTFE grades and additives. Their smooth finish, with high gloss and low porosity, avoids the risk of contamination buildup, and it reduces particle shedding.
