As the aftermarket distribution arm of the Freudenberg Group, Corteco draws on many decades of manufacturing expertise to offer the widest range of oil seals and seal kits for engine, transmission and driveline, and wheel hub. This includes crank and cam shaft seals as well as valve stem and transmission seals.
Our parent company, Freudenberg, is the largest global manufacturer of oil seals and designed and manufactured the first Simmerring® — the technology of choice among OEMs — in 1929. The Corteco sealing range is derived from more than 7,000 gaskets and over 6,500 different shaft seals, Simmering®, and valve stem seals that are available in OEM quality today.
Corteco also supplies the independent aftermarket with TransTec® brand automatic transmission, power steering, electronic power steering, and heavy duty sealing kits of the highest quality. The components of each kit have the same design and material characteristics as the original equipment. In addition to providing the widest vehicle and application coverage, every kit is guaranteed to provide all the necessary components for a complete rebuild.
Corteco is the choice of the automotive aftermarket worldwide because our value proposition is centered around our quality, innovation, and technical superiority.
Inventor of Simmerring®
Exclusive access to Freudenberg OE oil seals for Independent Automotive Aftermarket.
OE quality performance
In 2019 the received claims rate was less than 0.002% on the whole dynamic sealing range.
Optimized kit development
Kit development matches market needs with optimized parts selection granting workshops a hassle free repair.
Corteco offers OEM and OES quality seals into the automotive aftermarket including oil seals for European, Asian and Domestic applications that meet or exceed original equipment specifications.
Copy Oil Seal
Only an oil seal specialist has the right knowledge to develop an efficient and high-performance part. Copied oil seals run the risk of oil leakage, potentially damaging engine components and increasing vehicle repair costs. Characteristics of copied oil seals include:
The identification of a copied seal is almost impossible without a microscope, so trust the experts in sealing — Corteco and Freudenberg-NOK.
The markings below all represent oil seals manufactured by the Freudenberg-NOK partnership. These markings all signify the design and manufacturing expertise of Corteco/Freudenberg-NOK. When you see any of these markings, you can rest assured that you have a quality product that meets the precise design specifications and ensures precise functionality.
Seals represent some of the lowest cost parts in the most expensive repair jobs — but choosing the wrong seal can lead to warranty claims and more expensive repairs.
Critical Components of Oil Seals
Even though an oil seal may fit properly, significant geometrical differences in the casing, lip design, helix, or material differences could lead to leaking, premature wear in both the seal and mating components, and even failure.
The images to the right represent only a small fraction of the number of possible oil seal geometry types designed for various automotive applications.
Selecting an aftermarket seal that matches the design of the original equipment is imperative in ensuring proper function and preventing unwanted leaks, or early failures.
Corteco offers a wide range of engine, transmission & driveline, wheel hub oil seals and kits. This includes crank and cam shaft seals, valve stem and transmission seals. In addition, Corteco provides a large variety of sealing kits:
Today’s ever-increasing quality and efficiency demands are driving innovation leaders like Freudenberg-NOK to produce seals that offer both better sealing and lubrication as well as reduced friction for fuel efficiency. Freudenberg’s patented E.S.S.® (Energy Saving Seal) and PTFE POP® seals are the first step of Freudenberg project called “LESS”, for CO2 emissions reduction and performance increasing in modern vehicles. Their specific technology has been developed to be in line with today’s markets requirements: reliability, duration, resistance to bio-fuel, CO2 emissions reduction and performance increase.
The molded helix found on the shaft side of the sealing lip provides an oil sling effect that directs oil inward both preventing leaks and keeping proper lubrication where needed. The design, mold quality and orientation of the helix are all important factors that promote proper seal function.
Every automotive oil seal is designed by an OEM (like Freudenberg-NOK) to meet specific requirements provided from the OE. Each application requires unique functionality in order to achieve the desired performance.
Take Valve Stem Seals (for example). Valve stem seals have unique functionalities such as oil retention, purpose controlled leaking for lubrication and prevention of exhaust gas blowback that are highly dependent on the specific engine parameters for which the seal is designed for use. Using a valve stem seal that meets those exact design criterion is absolutely critical for proper engine function and seal longevity.
Thanks to the strong connection between Freudenberg and NOK, Corteco can supply a full range of seals for Asian applications. NOK is known as an innovative OE development specialist in Asia due to its product knowledge and high quality standards. NOK is the development partner and leading supplier for Asian OEMs. Corteco unites the expertise from cooperations with all major Asian OE manufacturers and has almost 4,000 sealing for Asian vehicles in range.
Through the close collaborations with Freudenberg Sealing Technologies (Germany) and Corteco Ishino (Japan), Corteco has the most comprehensive range of oil seals and gaskets available to the aftermarket. Continuous range extension is secured through product development and access to future OE technology via NOK and its joint-venture Pyung Hwa, the preferred development partners for Japanese and Korean OEMs. All Japanese and Korean OEMs are supplied or fully equipped with seals from NOK. By offering the full spectrum of engine sealing components for Asian applications to complement the European and American coverage, Corteco provides the convenience of one-stop-shopping.
