Solving Critical Modern Engine and Drivetrain Seal Problems 840404
Rapid changes in part requirements, due to the emphasis in recent years placed upon overall energy conservation, environmental quality, and safety, have greatly increased the demand for high performance materials. Many of the changes in component designs are exceeding the capabilities of conventional elastomers. Fluoroelastomers are no longer considered the material of last resort and are becoming an integral part of initial application development programs. This paper will review three specific applications of growing importance in solving critical engine and drivetrain seal problems.
