Wear resistance

The wear resistance of a seal depends largely on the sealing lip material, as well as on the shaft surface finish, type of lubricant, circumferential speed, temperature and pressure differentials.
A comparison of wear resistance for various sealing lip materials used by SKF is provided in the diagram 1. It is valid for seals of the same size, operating under identical conditions.
