Founded in 1878 as Chicago Rawhide, CR Seals has one of the longest histories in the seal industry. For the last 110+ years, CR Seals has been setting performance and service life standards for industrial and automotive shaft seals. CR Seals has also been part of SKF since 1990, a span during which we've developed new materials, manufacturing processes and designs to create some of the most robust seals on the market. CR Seals is represented as Power Transmission Seals in SKF. Why SKF for seals? Because no one knows how seals work with bearings better than us. Real life is challenging. Thanks to our advanced sealing technologies, designs and development processes, CR Seals outperform the competition on the test bench and in the real application. Why risk unplanned downtime and high warranty costs with a sub-par seal? Trust your uptime and your bottom line to the robust reliability of CR Seals from SKF.
