PTFE sealing material sets new benchmark for hydraulic seals

Exceptional performance against hydraulic sealing characteristics
Extensive testing has shown Turcon® M12 has exceptional performance against the most important hydraulic sealing characteristics, such as wear, friction and high pressure operation. The material is also resistant to virtually all media, including a broad range of lubricants.

The cost-effective material provides customers with extended seal life, as well as a wide operating window in terms of temperature, pressure and velocity, and performs as well or better than specialized compounds in each parameter.

On almost every parameter Turcon® M12 is better
“Turcon® M12 has exceeded even our expectations and we believe no other material can give such universally outstanding performance,” says Holger Jordan, who heads up the fluid power technology department within the R&D department at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in Stuttgart, Germany.
