Gas Turbine Engine
A jet engine turbofan is the most used type of basic gas turbine engine where the core engine is surrounded by a fan in the front and an additional turbine at the rear. All these engines have been designed to achieve the same goals: reduction in fuel consumption, noise and emissions. Our OmniSeal® PTFE seals is the perfect solution to replace elastomer seals who have reached their limit. Saint-Gobain has worked with many top aerospace companies to address not only higher working temperature but also improve the configuration of the turbofan itself.
