Unique seal gains new applications
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions’ unique Turcon Roto L seal was developed mainly for off-road vehicles but more areas of use have emerged at the latest Elmia Subcontractor. “We got a lead on the very first day,” says Ann-Marie Ringqvist, Marketing Coordinator at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in Sweden.
