13. Trelleborg Sealing SolutionsTrelleborg Sealing Solutions is showcasing its silicone processing and medical device solutions and new nanoscale coating at MD&M West this year.
The company is touting its new Seal-Glide nanoscale coating. The coating is a thin elastomer coating at the nano-scale. Its layer thickness is reduced by a factor of 10 to 50 when compared to conventional coating systems. Seal-Glide has also been shown to reduce the friction of elastomers while providing better sliding properties for better seal performance.
“Our customers face a variety of challenges when it comes to sealing solutions for medical applications,” Jeff Ribley, segment manager of healthcare and medical Americas at Trelleborg, said. “Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will be giving MD&M West attendees insights into the many ways advanced silicone and coating technologies provide them with more design flexibility and superior installation and functional performance.”
