The following solutions fall under our brand families.

Rulon® Fluoropolymers

Omniseal Solutions™ is the only source of authentic Rulon® PTFE-filled materials since its creation in the early 1950s for industrial use. Available in hundreds of formulations, the polymer material is manufactured into precision bearings, piston rings, cup seals, wear components, and many other critical parts for different industries such as aviation, space and life science

Benefits include low coefficient of friction, high wear life, excellent abrasion resistance, chemical inertness and resistance, and extreme temperature and pressure properties.

Hycomp Composites

Our composite materials include H310®, H320® and Wearcomp® solutions. Made from high temperature thermoset polymers and long carbon or glass fibers, they are mainly used in applications that require high temperature resistance, high mechanical strength or superior wear resistance. About 20% to 50% composites by weight are used in aircraft and helicopters - part of wings, landing gear doors, and structural elements. Not only valuable in aviation, this material is also used in industrial and heavy machinery applications such as canning, extrusion and forging.

Meldin® Polyimides & Thermoplastics

Our polyimide material is very versatile and used in aviation, industrial, semi-conductor, space, and life science industries. Since it can be softened and then cooled into a hard piece, it can be made into bearings, wear components, piston rings, vanes, thrust washers, seals, rods, sheets and tubes. This unique process is reversible and can be repeated a number of times.

Unlike thermosets, our thermoplastics are insoluble after curing. This material is designed to perform without external lubrication, offering various options that allow customers to extend part life or reduce weight.

H310® & H320® Materials

These composite solutions are high temperature, polymer-based materials that are reinforced with glass or carbon fibers. They are used as a replacement for metal due to weight saving properties and eliminating lubrication need in applications with high mechanical requirements. Suited for aviation critical systems such as engine, flight control, landing gear, wheel and braking, applications vary from bushings, guide rings, wear liners, seals, clamps, and thermal isolators.

488 PTFE

Rulon® 488 is a dull turquoise material originally developed for use with painted surfaces. It has been used in veneer dryer bearings in the plywood industry.

Its excellent wear resistance, especially in extremely dry environments, make it a material of choice in hydrogen and natural gas compressors. Its almost universal chemical resistance enables it to withstand corrosives and acids sometimes present in trace amounts in these environments.


Used in
Ideal for use in dry environments and applications where high abrasion resistance is needed.

Rulon® Fluoropolymers

1337 PTFE

Rulon® is a tan material made entirely from FDA and USDA compliant components. It has excellent physical properties and is chemically compatible with most chemicals, except concentrated sulfuric acid. This offers much flexibility in wash-down environments of food and pharmaceutical processing environments.

It has slightly lower coefficient of friction than Rulon® J, offering extended life and less abrasion with softer mating surfaces.

It is compatible with most commercially available natural lubricants for additional reduction in friction.


Used in
Easily withstands the chemical washdown procedures required of the food processing and pharmaceutical industries.

XL PTFE

Rulon® XL is a tan colored material that is best for use against aluminum (including anodized) substrates. Rulon® XL exhibits very low wear as compared with other Rulon® grades.

Other advantages offered by this unique material are that it combines low deformation under load with exceptionally good chemical resistance.
It is compatible with a wide range of mating surfaces, but is not recommended for use with alkalis. Its non-abrasive character enhances the frictional performance to prevent galling of softer mating surfaces.


Used in
It is the best material for vacuum service.

945 PTFE

Rulon® 945 is a black PTFE-based material that has very low wear and deformation under load, making it ideally suited for demanding thermal applications. In fact, its deformation is the lowest of all Rulon® grades. It also possesses excellent chemical resistance and good dimensional stability

Since Rulon® 945 has moderate abrasive qualities, this black material is best suited for use against hard mating surfaces, like hardened steel substrates. It is not suitable in applications where electrically insulating properties are required.


Used in
Ideal for high heat applications!
