Seal Function & Motion
As V-Seals are designed for maximum springback, they are considered a low load seal. Because of this low load, it can attain at good tightness when used with soft plating or coating.
In the seal selection process, you should always keep in mind basic design criteria. There is a direct relationship between the seal outer diameter (OD) and seal free height. Larger free heights provide better resilience and performance tends to be more consistent.
