※ Sealing element: It is a key basic component to prevent the leakage of media in the sealing system of mechanical equipment and the invasion of external impurities, dust, water, etc., ensuring the safe, economical, and reliable operation of the equipment.
※Seals (adhesives) are found in organic, pump, pipe, and valve areas. Although the sealing industry is small and plays a significant role, it is an important mechanical foundation component.
※According to industry, it can be divided into rubber plastic seals, mechanical seals, and packing static seals.
