The Phenolic Disadvantage

The preferred choice, ValCarb™ seals offer the same cost savings as phenolic seals along with superior performance.

Although economical, seals made with phenolic suffer from chemical attack, low strength thresholds, and limited thermal properties.

Advantage Seal offers a high-quality value-added alternative with seals made of ValCarb. ValCarb is chemically resistant, 40% stronger than phenolic, and has an operating temperature limit of 500°F.

Materials Pump

In 2002, veterans from pump and mechanical seal industry teamed up together to create a company that can provide affordable, high quality products in the sealing industry. As the "big" corporations are more focused on increasing the value of their stock shares rather than their customers, the industry is in dire need of a company that focuses on affordable, quality products and attentive service; hence the rise of Advantage Seal.
