TF Hubcaps

Product From SKF

For well over a decade, SKF TF Hubcaps have helped fleets log literally billions of trouble-free miles. Engineered of DuPont Zytel, SKF TF Hubcaps are lighter than steel and stronger than aluminum. A cloud-free window is fusion-bonded to the hubcap body during the manufacturing process, eliminating screws to shake loose and potential leak paths. Additionally, a solid aluminum ring is embedded into the hubcap's base, helping to distribute an even, leak-proof load against the hub. Each hubcap includes plated, pre-assembled retention bolts (at no additional cost), designed to protect against leaks at the bolt holes.

Scotseal PlusXL

Product From SKF

SKF's Scotseal PlusXL contains four internal sealing lips designed to keep road contaminants out and bearings lubricated. The seal’s inside diameter provides wider contact with the shaft than ordinary wheel seals, virtually eliminating misalignment or cocking during installation. What’s more, the Scotseal PlusXL offers broad compatibility with all popular synthetic fluid lubricants. Manufactured of Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (HNBR), the Scotseal PlusXL is engineered to withstand excessive heat (up to 300 degrees F) from frequent braking and the extreme cold conditions. The PlusXL also incorporates a patented Waveseal design that continually sweeps oil back to the bearings.
