Creating Stronger Seals and Seal Rings
Transmission seals and seal rings maintain appropriate oil pressure and keep precision, rotating components functioning properly. However, seals and seal rings are also subject to harsh working conditions that may imperil their reliability. High-temperature environments may lead to degradation over time, which can ruin transmissions. Manufacturers seek high-quality materials that will allow maximum performance capabilities under any condition.
Solvay supplies materials for seals and seal rings designed to meet extreme operating conditions. Our specialty polymer solutions provide exceptional performance capabilities under extreme temperatures, high pressure and high-velocity performance environments.
