performance creep

"Performance Creep" Risk

We understand all the variables that can bite you from the sealing perspective. A few years after your product has been in production, the seals being installed are not performing like they used to. We call this “Performance Creep”. Advanced specification support is a set of tools we have developed to prevent Performance Creep and assure it does not derail your manufacturing program now or in the future.

test bench

Test Bench Capabilities

Wherever possible we will deploy our Test Bench capabilities to help you benchmark performance of your incumbent seal to give you a data driven performance comparison. We will actuate seals in your hardware, in modified seal glands, in your fluids, pull and compile performance data to pre-qualify our solution. So, you have higher confidence as you budget and allocate your own testing resources.

fast prototype

Fast Prototypes

We understand your timeline is always an important factor so we have fast prototyping capabilities. We have preset pricing based on seal type, size range, and compound so all you need to do is send us your digital design file and a purchase order and we’re off to the races!

The seal itself is governed by: the profile, or seal type, and the material the seal is made from.
