Metric O-Rings

Metric O-Rings function primarily as gaskets that seal connections between structures like pipes and tubes or within pistons and cylinders. They’re typically made of pliable materials like rubber or high-quality PTFE. When pressed between two mating surfaces, they effectively block the passage of liquids or gases.

Whether a PTFE or rubber seal, metric o-rings come in two main forms: static or dynamic. A static seal is where the ring remains stationary and is used simply for containing pressure or maintaining a vacuum. Dynamic seals can be either reciprocating (for use in pistons and cylinders) or rotating (for applications in which a shaft rotates inside a housing).



As a trusted PTFE and silicone o-ring manufacturer, we offer a multitude of materials and durometers (ranging from 25 to 90 durometers on the Shore Hardness Scale) to fulfill practically any need. In addition to standard materials, we offer a variety of specialty grade materials such as USP medical-grade Class VI PTFE, NSF, FDA, and 3A sanitary grades. Whether you need high flexibility at low temperatures, resistance to heat, high dialectric stability — or anything in-between — these materials will get the job done.

In the o-ring size diagram above, the measurement “b” (which is the width of the groove) must be larger than the deformed o-ring itself. Depending on application, the groove may be open on one side. However, the pressure applied to the medium to be sealed must have full access to the o-ring. The surfaces of the groove and the opposing surfaces should have (more or less) rounded processing traces to permit peak-to-valley heights of 44 to 25 μm.

In case of applying back-up rings, the width of groove “b” is increased by the width of the back-up ring resp. in case of support on either side by the double width of the back-up ring.
