SPECIAL SEALS in THERMOPLASTICS
In addition to traditional piston and rod seals, scrapers, back-up rings and O-ring, LIMA manufactures a wide range of special design seals in thermoplastics, according to the customer’s needs.Thanks to the technologies at our disposal and to our staff’s long experience and know-how, LIMA can provide seals with a complex geometry and holding dimensional tolerances up to a hundredth of a millimeter.
The special profile seals are used as an auxiliary element for many components: compressors, heat exchangers, flanges, housings, baskets, pipes, fittings, slides, panels, rollers, caps, nozzles, mechanical parts of machinery, drains, observatories and sensors.
During assembly of the seals it is advisable to pay close attention in order to avoid cuts and permanent deformations that may compromise the functioning. The choice of the most suitable material depends from the application criticality. The most popular materials include PTFE, polyamides, POM, PE, PEEK, PVC and PET.
