Clearly, these innovative features are the key to success for appliance manufacturers. Hence, it is important to understand what makes most of these features possible: innovative sealing solutions from FST. Seals are fundamentally important to the proper functioning of appliances and – if properly designed – can become a foundation for your innovations by improving water and energy efficiency, consumer safety, and device durability while reducing space requirements, friction, weight and force levels.
Freudenberg provides state-of-the-art designs, materials and products from Rotary Shaft Seals, Gaskets and (miniature) O-Rings to custom molded elastomeric products for precise sealing, to make your appliances work the way they're intended!
Being the market leader for sealing solutions, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has developed tailor made elastomers and products that meet even the most stringent technical and legal requirements for appliance applications.
For example, our oil seals used in washing machines and dishwashers are made from materials that deliver the improved energy efficiency the industry is looking for, while maximizing the resistance to wear and friction and maintaining compatibility with detergents and other laundry additives that are mixed in water. Also, our innovative gaskets for refrigerator and freezer doors are excellent sealing solutions as they keep all benefits from existing solutions while helping to bring about significant energy savings.
