About HiMod®

HiMod® refers to a range of high-modulus plastic materials that Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has developed for applications demanding high wear and chemical resistance performance. The materials also exhibit low friction performance through the use of a unique balance of internal lubricants and wear inhibiting agents. These materials can be machined or injection molded, providing engineers the design freedom to develop the most economical manufacturing method.

The HiMod® Flatseal™ range consists of flat gaskets from the proprietary HiMod® material offering superior performance compared with conventional polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) flat gaskets. They are compliant with virtually all relevant standards including FDA. The product is die cut and is available in any standard or customer specified dimension. The HiMod® Flatseal™ products are manufactured in facilities that comply with ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 14001, meaning complete transparency in all degrees of production and a high degree of reliability and security for customers.
