Technology enhancements in the areas of reduced emissions and fuel conservation has increased engine temperature and created harsher operating environments. Trostel understands what it takes to provide robust sealing solutions utilizing high performance polymers for today’s diesel engines.

Competency and Capability

The company’s applications expertise, seal design experience and molding capability is supported by a strong competency in elastomeric polymer development. All of these align well with the needs of the engine design engineer.

Trostel understands how each application’s operating environment acts on seal performance and durability. Whether it be fluid compatibility, a wide temperature range, abrasion or a low torque requirement Trostel can provide the right component design and material to meet your application requirements. Another Trostel strength is component integration where dimensional accuracy and the bond integrity between the rubber and carrier is critical. Trostel specializes in latest rubber to metal adhesive systems. As a solutions provider Trostel is comfortable with the design and molding of challenging complex geometries.

Trostel collaborates with the customer early in the design cycle so as to gain a solid understanding of the design goals and program milestones. Trostel then works with the customer to specify the correct design and material to provide the optimum value in a sealing solution. We then perform application and endurance testing to verify the solution for the customer.

Trostel is a specialist in high-performance elastomers. Along with a broad portfolio of proven material formulations Trostel has exceptional rubber compound development capability. Whether the specifications are for extreme temperatures, chemical resistance, tear strength, abrasion resistance or explosive decompression Trostel’s expert chemists will provide a custom compound to meet the most demanding requirements.

Trostel’s data controlled custom mixing operation features state of the art mixing equipment that provides optimum dispersion as well as consistent physical and rheological properties.
