We act as business accelerator, from concept to delivery

Claus Barsoe Sealing Solutions President

Describe what characterizes your business area.
The optimal solution for our customers’ sealing challenges forms the basis for how we act; from concept to delivery.
Everything we do builds on collaboration with and understanding of our customers’ business and their markets. This drives our strategy and how we make it easier for customers to do business with us.

Name a technological highlight of the year.
There is a high pace of development in the business area. We are continuously developing new products and solutions.

For example, we have Zurcon® Glyd Ring® D, which is a seal made from a special material for use in hydraulic cylinders fitted on construction equipment. The product guarantees a long service life and a high degree of reliability. It is made from the polyurethane material Zurcon® Z13, which is specially developed to cope with pressures up to 500 bar from both sides of the seal and at temperatures up to 120 °C. 

Another of our innovations has made it possible to produce two-colored components in Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) from a single tool. This solution was requested by a leading automotive manufacturer to enable it to easily differentiate between geometrically identical components for various vehicle platforms. We now have the ability to add color pigment to a specific part of the silicon material stream just prior to its injection into the tool cavity.

What will be the key development areas in the years ahead?
We will continue the development program aimed at making it easy for customers to do business with Trelleborg. We are also at the forefront of new engineering apps and online tools that can make life easier for our customers and help them choose an optimal sealing solution at any time of the day, whether at their desk or on the move.
