Turcon M12, a PTFE-based material launched in 2011 by Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, has received a 2011 Innovation Award from Flow Control Magazine. According to the company, the PTFE-based sealing material has unrivaled performance in key hydraulic sealing characteristics such as friction, wear, and high-pressure operation. Testing shows Turcon M12 resistant to most media, including a broad range of lubricants, and has outstanding wear resistance and friction characteristics. The cost-effective material also provides an extended seal life, as well as a wide operating window in temperature, pressure, and velocity.
“Turcon M12 has exceeded even our expectations,” said Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Product Manager Nancy Getz. “On most every parameter it is better than, sometimes significantly, than previously recommended compounds or was at least equal to them.”
