Material matters. Due to this, selecting an o-ring material for a specific application is dependent on many criteria, including what’s being sealed, temperature range, pressure, dynamic or static service, desired service life, installation considerations, tolerances and many more. General purpose compounds are used broadly, however, utilizing the exact compound consistently is equally as important. At Global O-Ring and Seal, you can be assured that all our general purpose o-rings meet the standards stated in our spec sheets. We do not mix compounds even for general purpose o-rings.
