Spring-energized Seals Are Designed for High-Performance Aerospace Applications
CoorsTek introduces the redesigned MetaPlast II spring-energized seal. The MetaPlast seal, used in a range of applications including valves, pumps and other fluid-handling products, was adopted in the aviation industry for critical-duty hydraulic seals. The redesigned seal, dubbed MetaPlast II, offers several performance enhancements — useful in the high-vibration environments found on newer aircraft like the F-35/JSF and various other Unmanned Combat Airborne Vehicle (UCAV) programs currently in development. The MetaPlast II seal boasts a more resilient, fatigue-resistant spring with improved spring travel characteristics — translating to improved performance in critical-duty applications.
