THE APPLICATION OF THE MONTH! O-RING RUBBER GASKETS
The O-ring, though today considered one of the most banal sealing elements, is also the most widespread.
This apparently insignificant gasket is already a key organ for the feature of much more complicated sets.
Think of how many mechanical components a car entrusts to an O-ring seal, of giant engines pushing merchant ships that without the O-ring could not develop all the needed power or even of a valve that has to adjust the innumerable flow times and that entrusts the O-ring with the task of not leaking the content.
Infinite uses for a common product, or almost.
Thanks to the evolution of materials and production systems, today it is possible to produce O-rings with a high over time quality which, in some cases, allowed designers to replace with O-rings more sophisticated sealing elements and imposing it as a static (and sometimes dynamic) more used ones. From the simplest applications to the harshest conditions of use in complex components, our O-rings offer you the warranty of a constant performance.
The increasing spread of applications using O-rings required a considerable expansion of the range of measures. Today the market requires thousands of different combinations of diameters and strings. Our company offers you a practically infinite size park. From the smallest O-ring with inner diameter of 1.00 mm to the largest, which, thanks to a new innovative production system, does not limit the sizes. If we add the possibility to choose among hundreds of different compounds with hardnesses, colours and different features, the possibilities are truly endless.
The materials we use are:
• EPDM peroxygen
Any kind of material can be produced with a minimum hardness of 30 sh. to a maximum of 95 sh. and with colours on request. The staff of our laboratory, complete with chemical analysis instruments on the compounds, is able to follow you in the development of mixes for specific uses.
Low temperatures, aggressive environments and wear applications are just some of the problems solved by using appropriate mixes.
