Saint-Gobain Seals Presents Technical Paper on Cold Temperature Sealing at SAE Committee Meeting
Saint-Gobain Seals presented a technical paper at the SAE International Joint Technical Committee event titled, “Cold Temperature Hydraulic Seals for Aerospace Hydraulic Systems."
By: Saint-Gobain Seals
The SBIR solicitation addresses the need for a dynamic sealing solution that operates down to temperatures of -100°F (-73°C) due to advancement of unmanned air vehicles and demanding requirements at higher altitudes, which causes the hydraulic system to become cold soaked and prone to leakage.

Saint-Gobain Seals not only presented a technical paper but also participated during the table-top exhibition, displaying their OmniSeal® seal products, which have been extensively used in many aerospace critical applications such as jet engines, APUs, flight controls, landing gear and space vehicles. They recently developed an extremely large cryogenic seal (more than six feet wide) for the NASA Space Launch System (SLS) project, Exploration Mission 1 (EM-1) -- a high-performance achievement based on the SLS’s future demanding payloads. The OmniSeal® RACO™ cryogenic seal marks the continuation of Saint-Gobain Seals’ fifty years of providing sealing and polymer products for space exploration and their collaboration on NASA projects.
As with their cryogenic seal on the NASA Exploration Mission 1 (which handles extreme pressure and temperature conditions), Saint-Gobain Seals has been proactively attending industry events such as the SAE event to share with the aerospace community other demanding applications their OmniSeal® seals are best utilized such as the aerospace hydraulic systems aforementioned.
