Standard Elastomers Seals
Our range of standard elastomer seals for hygienic applications extends from O-Rings, the most commonly used seal to flange gaskets specifically for pipe couplings, while our FlexiMold™ proprietary technology allows us to produce giant seals in almost infinite diameters.
Standard O-Rings meeting challenging industry requirements
For static and slow dynamic situations, the O-Ring is the most commonly used seal, and Trelleborg Sealing Solutions can supply virtually any size. They are available to meet all international standards such as AS568B, DIN3771, BS 1806/ BS 4518, JIS B2401, NFT47-501, SMS 1586 and ISO 3601 alongside seals produced in custom dimensions. Cost-effective, our wide range of specialized elastomers means O-Ring material can be matched to the specific needs of an application.

Turcon® MF: the ideal material for hygienic applications
Rotary seals can be manufactured in Turcon® MF materials, which are specially engineered for aseptic applications. These compounds, with their compliance to all major approvals and almost total chemical compatibility, allow these geometries to be fully utilized in food and beverage applications.

For some critical applications, the best solution is a custom designed component, where material knowledge and a high level of technical design are united. The Trelleborg Sealing Solutions portfolio of engineered products is almost unlimited. This allows us to meet our aim of developing the optimum solution for each application, in terms of both value and functionality.
From simple product variations to complex gaskets
The product offering includes anything from relatively simple variations on a standard seal designs to diaphragms, with or without fiber reinforcement and complex gaskets. Sealing elements can also be bonded to housing substrates such as plastics or metal. These give almost total integrity, minimizing assembly, reducing overall production costs.
Elastomers have a high coefficient of friction. This means they tend to stick, either to each other during automated assembly, or to mating surfaces when inserted into a housing. Coating technology improves the friction characteristics of elastomer seals, enhances wear resistance, lowers insertion forces and, thereby, supports sealing in some dynamic applications.
Ideal for automated assembly
The coating is suited for all kinds of elastomer seals, depending on their shape and size, and does not affect the seal’s natural elasticity. Its reduced friction makes it ideal in automated assembly processes. Suited for both static and low-level dynamic applications, with infrequent movement and short stroke rate, it retains its properties in repeated insertion and dismantling processes.
