Characteristics and performance

Hallite’s 656 is an asymmetric single acting piston seal. Similar in design to the Hallite 621 rod seal, Hallite’s 656 offers excellent sealing in light, medium and heavy duty single acting applications.

Manufactured in Hallite’s high performance polyurethane Hythane® 181, Hallite 656 is an extremely flexible seal making installation easy.

The twin lip design offers lower friction, improved sealing and primary lip protection.
