Improved Performance for Hydraulic Seals from Thermoplastic Polyurethane
June 1, 2012
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.
