AS568 O-Ring Size Chart
The Global O-Ring and Seal Size Reference Chart covers the AS568 O-Ring Sizes published by the Society of Automotive Engineers (S.A.E.), and includes the Extended Sizes in the 400 Series. The purpose of this chart is to specify the inside diameters, cross-sections, tolerances, and size identification codes (dash numbers) for O-rings used in sealing applications and for straight thread tube fitting boss gaskets.

This size chart was first published in 1971 by the A-6c2 Seals Committee at SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) as Aerospace Standard AS568. These standards were later republished in 1974 as AS568A, in 2001 as AS568B, and most recently in 2008 as AS568C. Any of these terms (AS568, AS568A, AS568B, AS568C) may be used interchangeably when referring to an o-ring dash size.
Actual vs. Nominal
To assist our customers in selecting the correct size o-ring we have included 3 measurements for cross reference purposes; the “Nominal”, “Actual Inch”, and “Actual Metric” sizes. We are often asked “What is the difference between Actual and Nominal sizes for o-rings?”. The Nominal (fractional) dimensions are in name only (often used when verbally describing the size). For more accurate measurements, please refer to the actual inch or millimeter sizes, as these are the true dimensions of the o-ring.
To calculate an o-ring’s outside diameter (OD) you may use this formula: 2(CS) + ID = OD
Conversely, if you have the OD and need to find the ID use this formula: OD – 2(CS) = ID
