WM Seals specialise in the manufacture & supply of PTFE seals.
PTFE Seals are the preferred choice for many applications and are also a great replacement for more traditional oil seals.
They’re made from tough polymer, which ensures a much longer life with reduced need for maintenance, replacement or repair.
PTFE has a memory and will always return to its original form. The plastic memory effect needs time to take place before use to allow the PTFE Seal to expand so it perfectly matches the shaft diameter before use. This is completed with the use of specialist tools which can be supplied by WM Seals.
