By choosing a compound and hardness it is usually possible to find a suitable O-ring for most applications. Rubber O-rings can operate in temperatures from -55 deg C to + 320 deg C and (with backup rings) at pressures of 400 Bar. They are available in a large range of standard imperial and metric sizes The most common international standards for O-Ring dimensions, in addition to ISO 3601/1 are:-

  • American Standard : AS-568
  • Great Britain : BS 1806 – BS 4518,
