Zero-error quality

FST Polymers Polymere

As a technology specialist, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is keen to take on the challenge of the growing demands on seals and sealing materials. To meet this challenge, we use our own zero-error quality compound manufacture as the basis for a dependable sealing result. Selected raw materials and our own polymers for acrylate and fluoro rubbers form the ingredients of our top quality elastomer compounds. 


And because speed is of the essence, Freudenberg’s experts use modern calculation methods to create material models that simulate the behavior of the material under application without losing time. A wide and varied range of analysis methods are employed to assess opportunities for application and durability. It is by putting these high-tech materials through their paces that we safeguard the quality of our products – right from the beginning.

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has thousands of active material compositions (rubber, plastics, coatings and adhesives) based on combinations of hundreds of available raw materials. The organization maintains and in fact continues to grow its custom formulating and mixing capabilities in research and development facilities around the world.
