Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Defines Sealing and Engineering Terms


Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has launched an easy-to-use glossary where engineers can find definitions for commonly used engineering and sealing terms at the click of a mouse or touch of a button. Free of charge, it is available online or via an app for both iPhone and Android, downloadable by searching for “Trelleborg” from the Apple app store or Google play.

The glossary is easily searchable by entering key words, with results displayed where the searched item is in the title or in the definition of the searched word.
