Rolf Galle-Gutbrecht, Holger Jordan, Renate Brielmann

The article "Improved Performance for Hydraulic Seals from Thermoplastic Polyurethane" appeared in the June 2012 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
Seal design engineers and end users are continually seeking improved sealing systems and materials. This paper describes the potential of a new thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) material to deliver improvements in pressure, speed and temperature capability, which are presented as comparisons to proven industry standard materials. Performance is demonstrated by virtue of test bench results of seals made from MDI-, PPDI- and NDI-based materials.
