There is a lot of activity in this area at the moment, probably spurred on by the widespread circulation of our PFAS information and SEA. We are currently waiting for VED, Italy, and AEGIR Marine, the Netherlands, to finalise their payments to become a member.

Meanwhile, Meccanotechnica Umbra are the latest addition to the Mechanical Seals Division. Clifford Springs, UK, have also requested to become associate members, and as there have been no objections, they will move forward to the final stage before being fully accepted.
