    Fluid Sealing has changed...
• As simple as they may seem, fluid sealing
  products have become increasingly more
  sophisticated over the years.
   –   New materials
   –   Rapid changes in technology
   –   Increased processing demands within plants
   –   Ever changing regulatory demands
• Fluid sealing devices are not common industrial
  commodities -- and their mis-application can be
  disastrous for your plant as well as your bottom
 Customer Needs Have Changed ...

• Downsizing has caused many plants to leave
  fluid sealing responsibilities to personnel with
  less experience and expertise. Plants are
  losing millions of dollars as this lack of
  expertise often results in seal failure and
• Plants need to reduce their risks, as there is
  increased exposure to fugitive emissions and
  employee injuries.
EPA and OSHA regulations have made
Fluid Sealing more important than ever.
• This is because applications continue to
  become more severe, fugitive emissions less
  acceptable and sealing options more complex.
• The regulatory agencies’ definition of a “leak”
  continues to change.
• Flawless sealing and rapid technical response
  to seal failure is critical. The solution, more
  often than not, is an engineered solution.
How the wrong choice of Fluid
Sealing Devices can cost you:
$ Employee injuries and associated costs (lawsuits,
  insurance premiums, and lost man hours)
$ Government imposed fines for environmental

$ Downtime and associated costs
  (overtime, contract labor, loss of        revenue,
  shut down and startup costs).

$ BOTTOM LINE: Integrated Supply may not
  meet all of your needs in every product line.
The Safer Solution …
• The best option is to work with someone who specializes
  in fluid sealing devices. As a member of the Independent
  Sealing Distributors association (ISD), a national learning
  and support organization for sealing specialists, we bring
  serious value to the table.
• Independent Fluid Sealing distributors have total
  access to the newest technologies, latest design
  changes, and up to the minute manufacturing
• In short, we’re a partner for complete sealing solutions
  that will, in the long run, improve safety, and save you
  time and money.
