The fluid sealing industry is made of of thousands of different types and styles of seals. There are definite industry standards which have been adopted by most major and minor seal companies. Within all the standard seals are subsets of seals where like any industry, designs have been modified for improved performance or marketability.

We have taken the time to break down the major segments of the seal industry and provided links that should be helpful to anyone from the purchasing agent from Exxon Mobil to the home mechanic looking gasket material.

We hope this is helpful to you.
