SKF Bore Tite Coating
SKF Bore Tite Coating is a water-based acrylic sealant available on most SKF metal-cased seals. The sealant is used as a coating on the outside diameter of the seal. SKF Bore Tite Coating is pliable with a thickness of 0,03 to 0,07 mm (0.0012 to 0.0028 in.) to compensate for small imperfections in the housing bore surface. The general guideline in Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) is, that if the bore surface texture is greater than Ra 2,5 µm (100 µin.), a sealant should be used. This sealant can be used at temperatures up to 200 °C (390 °F) and is compatible with most oils, greases, aqueous acids and alkalis, alcohols and glycols. Please note that SKF Bore Tite Coating is not compatible with aromatics, ketones or esters. Contact with these substances will, however, have little or no effect if wiped off quickly.
