Composite Seals (also known as Koppers in South Africa)
are used in precision gland and piston applications and are energised by a nitrile rubber O-Ring.
Composite seals (Koppers) should be made of PTFE with a high percentage of bronze to give the product excellent sealing characteristics and return movement of the piston.
Regrettably much of the market is using an inferior product which has only 20% bronze in the PTFE.

to ensure that the product performs to a very high standard. You will be able to identify a Fuzion Trading 40% bronze filled PTFE composite seal by its GREEN colour. If in doubt…ASK!
