Here at Scots Bearings Ltd we work in partnership with several leading manufacturers of Sealing Products. As Distributors of this product we can offer the following;

Rotary Shaft Seals

Rotary Shaft Seals are available from stock in NBR and FPM compound. They are produced in single or double lip, with covered or uncovered metal parts, with reinforced textile rubber or reinforced metal case, as well as in many other different profiles.

Front Seals and V-Rings

The fully elastomer axial seal, V-ring, which is mounted directly on the shaft is a very popular product thanks to its high quality and versatility. The full range of standard profiles is available in NBR and FPM. Any other compound can be supplied upon request.

Wiper Seals

This product is used to protect seals from dirt during reciprocating motions. Wiper seals are available in three different combinations: rubber only, rubber covered insert and with outer metal housing.

Hydraulic Seals

These packing seals are composed of lip rings made of a cotton fabric reinforced elastomeric compound and are suitable for reciprocating movements. They can be fitted on cylinders as well as on pistons in a variety of applications from light duty to the heaviest working conditions.


O-rings are the most common sealing product used in static or dynamic applications. Our O-rings are available in molded, hot vulcanized or with a teflon encapsulation enclosing a core of Silicone or Viton elastomer.
