Being a pioneering developer, Saint-Gobain APS is a leading supplier of sealing components for technologically advanced mobility applications globally. Our wide variety of Rulon® PTFE materials combined with over 50 years of seal design and development experience and world-class manufacturing on a global basis allows us to provide custom-tailored sealing solutions for the most demanding applications.
Optimal control with benefits of fast positioning time. Rulon® properties have low friction and drag loss capabilities enabling a fast, accurate and reliable movement in rotational and linear direction. The actuation benefits from excellent response characteristics with the benefits of low variance over lifetime.
Efficient system design with lower weight. The flexibility and memory effect of Rulon® material ensures low and consistent leakage of the sealing component. The low breakaway force and friction allows a downsizing of the actuator drive resulting in higher efficiency and smaller components with lower costs.
Low power consumption. Due to the low actuation force, a low power consumption over lifetime is ensured and allows our Rulon® sealing solution suitable for the limited energy supply in hybrid and electric vehicles.
Low cost alternative to polymer machined seals. The unique manufacturing process for our low friction lip seals generates the possibility for real cost reductions for medium and high volume requirements, giving the same or better properties than machined Polymer seals.
