It may be that the best solution is a stand-alone moulding or a machined polyurethane u-seal, or it might be better to produce a dual material part with PTFE bonded directly to rubber, to ensure a low-friction seal which is still compliant as needed.
We offer a range of fluid power sealing solutions, with the option to prototype a seal by machining it in an engineering plastic, and then taking it to a moulded option once proven.
With so many manufacture and material options available, we can provide the technical solution to fulfill your requirements – including providing FEA analysis to establish how the seal will likely function and wear.
To better understand which materials might be suitable for your application, please take a look at our chemical compatibility chart – or better still, get in touch.
