O-rings are basic sealing components that are easy and cheap to use-install. Because of these qualities, O-rings are widely used in hydraulic, pneumatic, and various liquid and gas systems. O-rings have a large area of application in almost all sectors, particularly in critical fields such as space, aviation and medical technologies. O-rings can be used in both static and dynamic applications if suitable operating environment and materials are provided.
Compared to other sealing components, O-rings take smaller space and provide two-way sealing, thus making designs easier. They entail low risk for installation errors. For the best O-ring application results; proper dimensioning, correct material selection and suitable surface quality of metal parts are required.
It is easy to process the surfaces and ducts where O-rings will be installed. Compared to other sealing components, O-rings can also be used on more roughly processed surfaces.
