Improving Seals and Seal Rings with Specialty Polymers

Our specialty polymer solutions address the unique and complex challenges manufacturers face when designing effective seals and seal rings for different transmissions. For improving seals and seal rings, Syensqo offers brands such as KetaSpire® PEEK, Torlon® PAI, and Tecnoflon® FKM.

  • KetaSpire® PEEK - With outstanding chemical and fatigue resistance, KetaSpire® PEEK is an excellent metal alternative in seal ring applications. KetaSpire® PEEK operates at high temperatures and retains its mechanical properties in severe end-use environments of up to 240 °C.
  • Torlon® PAI - Performing in extreme operating conditions of up to 260 °C, Torlon® PAI demonstrates excellent wear, creep and chemical resistance. Torlon® PAI displays superior structural characteristics in high-temperature environments and is suited for different types of seal ring usages. 
  • Tecnoflon® FKM - Tecnoflon® FKM synthetic rubbers derive their strength from carbon-fluorine bonds, unlike traditional elastomers. It retains excellent physical and mechanical properties under chemically aggressive conditions.
