O-Ring Materials

Buna O-Rings

  • A fluoroelastomer compound with a combination of exceptional mechanical properties and compression set resistance. This particular energizer gives an O-ring excellent memory and the ability to recover rapidly from deformation. This core has a Shore A hardness of 75 with a suggested operating temperature range of -10°F to +300°F (-23°C to +150°C) in encapsulated applications.

EP O-Rings

  • EP is an elastomer which is characterized by wide range of applications and good chemical resistance. Ethylene propylene compounds have good resistance to detergents, alkalis, mild acids, greases, silicone oils, and alcohols.

Polyurethane O-Rings

  • Polyurethane is also known as urethane, cast urethan and millable urethane. Exceptional tensile strength. Abrasion and low temperature resistance. Typical applications include hydraulic seals, gaskets, diaphragms, hoses, and wheels for skate boards.

Neoprene O-Rings

  • Neoprene resists fats, oils and petroleum products. Stands up well in sunlight. Low flammability – burns when exposed to flames, but self-extinguishes when flame is removed. Generally good ozone, aging and chemical resistance. It has good mechanical properties over a wide temperature range.

Viton O-Rings 

  • A fluoroelastomer compound with a combination of exceptional mechanical properties and compression set resistance. This particular energizer gives an O-ring excellent memory and the ability to recover rapidly from deformation. This core has a Shore A hardness of 75 with a suggested operating temperature range of -10°F to +300°F (-23°C to +150°C) in encapsulated applications.  
  • Viton® is a registered trademarks of DuPont® Dow Elastomers.

Silicone O-Rings

  • This elastomer possesses mechanical properties similar to Viton®, with the exception of its slightly lower compression set resistance. It is more suitable for sensitive applications where lighter compressive forces are applied to energize the seal. This core has a Shore A hardness of 70 but it also offers a broader operating temperature range of -80°F to +500°F. (-62°C to +260°C).

Aflas O-Rings

  • This elastomer is a copolymer of Tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) and propylene. Its chemical resistance is excellent across a wide range of aggressive media.

Perfluoroelastomer O-Rings

  • Parts resist over 1,800 different chemicals, while offering the high temperature stability of PTFE (327°C). They’re used in aggressive chemical processing, pharmaceutical, oil rcovery, gas recovery, and aerospace applications. The proven, long-term performance of Kalrez® parts can mean less repairs, seal changes, inspections and equipment uptime for greater productivity and yield.

Fluorosilicone O-Rings

  • This elastomer possesses mechanical properties similar to Viton®, with the exception of its slightly lower compression set resistance. It is more suitable for sensitive applications where lighter compressive forces are applied to energize the seal. This core has a Shore A hardness of 70 but it also offers a broader operating temperature range of -80°F to +500°F. (-62°C to +260°C).
