Maximising the life of a seal

seal

There are a number of things which can be done to extend the life of a seal.

Storage

The working life of a seal can be dramatically enhanced when the exposure to heat, humidity, oxygen, ozone and other solvents is kept in check. Keeping storage areas dry, cool, reasonably ventilated and free of foreign or dust particles is essential.

Cleaning

When cleaning warm water and a clean cloth is recommended.

Surface Finish

Upon a seal’s surface, microscopic deviations enable recesses to form, which allow the seal to retain an oil film between its surface and that of the exterior.
