PCTI DESIGN TEAM

We engineer, design, and manufacture high-performance seals and components for demanding Aviation applications. Polymer Concepts has been an Aircraft Component partner for more than 25 years supplying seals for a variety of Commercial, Government, and Military applications. Our Spring-Energized Seals and Rotary Lip seals, utilizing our extensive Material Polycon Library, can be found in the assemblies of Passenger Aircraft, Helicopters, and Defense Platforms.

We recognize the special operating requirements as set forth by our Aviation partners and have developed critical components that reduce maintenance time, increase operating cycles before needed replacement, help improve the overall safety of the operators and passengers aboard, increase cost savings per part and promote overall efficiency of our client's applications.

Seal design is a complex process, especially in aviation applications where certifications and rigorous zero-failure standards are a must to ensure that flight operations go smoothly and without catastrophic failure. We help you navigate those challenges with extensive hardware consulting, operations testing, seal qualifications, and customized seal cross-section design to meet your application requirements.

Specialized Materials for Aircraft Seals and Components

POLYCON 01

POLYCON 01

Versatile Material, High/Low Temperature tolerances and low coefficient of friction. Low Dielectric Constant and inflammability.

POLYCON 12 and 12D

POLYCON 12 and 12D

Better wear resistance than PolyCon 01 with slightly higher coefficients of friction.

Typically used in rotary and reciprocating applications to seal against stainless steel, chrome plated components and aluminum alloys and/or ceramic coatings.

POLYCON 25

POLYCON 25

Very High coefficient of friction, typically used in bearings, back up rings and bushings. Suitable as a metal alloy replacement.

Material advantages in chemical resistance and ability to withstand aggressive compounds and environments. Excellent electrical insulation properties as well.

POLYCON 12 and 12D

POLYCON 25 VARIANTS

Polycon 25 Variants are typically filled custom blends of Polycon 25 and other materials to meet the specific operating requirements of the application.

These additional materials can improve wear resistant, reduce friction, and even alter the thermal properties of the seal.
