The Wifflon Super Polymer just released by Oz Seals is set to replace most Teflon (DuPont®) PTFE material. With outstanding durability, ideal for high pressure applications, seal life is vastly improved by 10 times when compared to the conventional seal. Most consumers of industrial machines experience seal failure rates in excess of 85%. The Wifflon Super Polymer can save significant costs. It reduces downtime, while increasing productivity by lowering the frequency of seal changes.
The Wifflon Super Polymer is a thermoset with memory and can be stretched onto pistons without having to resize the glide ring, unlike PTFE thermoplastic which stays deformed. Featuring a hardness of 60 Shore D, it boasts an excellent resistance to aging and resistance to oil. At a hot water resistance of 95˚C, Oz Seals has used the latest in chemical innovation to achieve excellent low and high temperature properties which can withstand temperatures from -50 to 120˚C. With the enhanced safety of machines comes peace of mind. Oz Seals offers a custom seal service, where special profiles can be manufactured in a matter of hours. The Wifflon Super Polymer is exclusively available at Oz Seals, or directly from www.sealnet.com.au, your one-stop comprehensive shop for seals and raw materials.
