Turcon® M12 from Trelleborg Sealing Solutions is a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) based sealing material with unmatched performance in key hydraulic sealing characteristics such as friction, wear and high pressure operation.
Meticulous and systematic evaluations, carried out through rigorous testing protocols, have shown that Turcon® M12 compound exhibits outstanding chemical resistance to a variety of agents, covering a broad spectrum of industrial lubricants. Its performance in terms of wear is outstanding, showing minimized erosion rates even under severe operating conditions. In addition, its tribological properties, specifically with regard to the coefficient of friction, are exceptional, promoting efficient and consistent sliding of the components in contact.
From a cost-efficiency perspective, Turcon® M12 not only optimizes the performance of the seals in which it is used, but also significantly extends their life cycle. This translates into a reduction in the frequency of maintenance and replacement, thus offering added value to end users. In addition, this material demonstrates broad operational versatility, maintaining its integrity and performance over a wide range of temperatures, pressures and speeds, making it suitable for a wide range of industrial environments and applications.
The superiority of Turcon® M12, particularly within the polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) polymer category, has been corroborated through comparative testing. No other PTFE material has been shown to provide such comprehensive and uniformly outstanding performance in all dimensions evaluated. Consequently, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has positioned Turcon® M12 as the preferred and recommended material for use in a wide variety of hydraulic applications, given its proven ability to improve the reliability, durability and efficiency of the systems in which it is integrated.
