Turcon for Aerospace Applications | Trelleborg


The Turcon® range consists of proprietary materials based on premium-grade Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fluoropolymer resins. Fillers are added to enhance material properties.

The world’s largest manufacturer of PTFE based seals
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions is the world’s largest manufacturer of seals in this type of material, and no other sealing supplier can offer such a wide range of grades. All of these are produced at our own facilities in Europe, US, South America and Asia.

The characteristics of Turcon®

  • Low Friction
  • Chemically inert in virtually all media
  • Able to operate in temperatures from -196°C to +260°C / -320°F to +500°F and will endure temperature spikes of up to +360°C / +680°F
  • Not altered or adversely affected by cycling temperatures.
  • Does not contain plasticizers or any other ingredients which could degrade at temperatures below +300°C / +572°F.
  • Speed of the dynamic surface in contact with the seal can go up to 15 m/s / 49.2 ft/s
  • Will not become brittle or degrade when exposed to severe-weathering conditions such as heat, light, water or salt spray
  • High wear resistance
  • Doesn’t absorb fluids to a significant level
  • Excellent electrical properties
  • Can be safely used in a vacuum
  • Will not sustain fire in pure oxygen

To select the optimum material for your application use our online tools:

  • Material search allows you to identify compounds that meet specific property requirements and those that comply to specific approvals or standards.
  • Chemical compatibility check allows you to find the level of resistance of material groups to a broad range of media, both fluids or gases including those used within semiconductor manufacturing.
