Suction Roll Seal Strips
Our materials are designed for this harsh environment and the excessive wear. The combination of graphite and Teflon® make our materials the lowest coefficient friction of any other material.
Our materials include ToughLON™, SMARTSeal®, Polytron® K-2, Polytron® A-2 and Polytron® P
ToughLON™ is the closest thing to Teflon® you can get in a wear material! Toughlon™ is the next advancement in materials technology and the most significant change in seal strip materials in 30 years. The homogenous material has the flexibility needed for installation and during use has shown a much longer wear life than the graphite materials.
SMARTSeal® was designed to have internal lubricity without the graphite. The material is the same basic matrix as the Polytron K-2®. The base material is durable and designed to be resistant to chemicals with excellent wear properties. SMARTSeal™ eliminates any problems of streaking on the sheet.
Polytron® K-2 has been in use since 1983 and can be found in many mills throughout the world. This thermoset material is reinforced with an aramid fiber that is vital to the strength and flexibility of the strips. The K-2 comes with the Teflon lubricator bar and has five main functions:
Polytron® A-2 is a Polytron® material, with the qualities of the K-2, is a more budget friendly material. It is Sawyers 3rd generation of materials and has proved to be an excellent material for most suction roll applications. Just as the Polytron line of products, it is easy to install, excellent wear properties, resistant to chemicals and flexible.
Polytron® P is the Polytron® line of material with a budget price. Many rebuilders like this material as it has the qualities of the Polytron® materials and fits most mills budget. The graphite gives this material an internal lubricity.
