Precision Polymer Engineering recognises that every sealing application presents its own unique set of challenges, so for one evening, we’re hosting a free Elastomer Sealing Seminar at the Robert Gordon University.

In an easy-to-digest format, you will get an introduction to elastomer sealing for critical oil and gas applications.
The seminar covers the most common causes of elastomer seal failures, examine real-life examples and provide practical recommendations for avoiding future problems with your seals.     
This is a great opportunity for training in such a niche subject matter, learning essential knowledge you will use throughout your engineering career.
The evening will close with a choice of beverages and refreshments provided by 'The Breadmaker', with the opportunity to network.

Benefits of Attending:
Improved sealing performance through:
-  better seal and groove designs
-  optimal material selection

Which will lead to:
-  extended service intervals
-  increased efficiency
-  lower cost of ownership
-  better protection of capital equipment
-  more robust designs


Note: To receive CPD certificate you must sign-up online via this page and request certificate on the register during the event.


After completing BEng (Hons) Computer Aided Engineering, Chris Allan moved into the Oil and Gas industry where he specialised on the design, development, testing and installation of Subsea Mooring Connectors. Following a PPE sealing course, Chris entered the niche world of elastomer sealing.
