O-Ring Cross Sections
No matter if you are trying to size a metric or an inch O-ring you need to know two important numbers.
1) You need to know the ID or inside diameter
2) You need to know the CS or cross section sometimes known as the thickness
For Metric O-rings:
If the metric size you need for example is :
3 x 2mm (ID x CS)
For Inch O-rings:
Inch o-rings come in 5 standard CS-thicknesses and they are:
1/16 – 3/32 – 1/8 – 3/16 – 1/4
O-Rings and Cord Extrusion
Standard Profiles for O-Rings and Hollow, Square Cut, X-Ring Extrusion
(Nitrile) O-Ring Cord is the most widely used O-Ring elastomer. It has an excellent resistance to petroleum products. It also has an excellent compression set along with tear and abrasion resistance.
Custom Extrusion Profiles, Any length, up to 2 inches diameter, Durometer: 50 to 70 Shore A
Hot splicing and vulcanizing process is to chemically bond two ends of rubber extrusion together. This creates an endless seal making the gasket stronger and more impermeable to the elements. We cut the length to achieve the desired shape of the end product for close tolerances. Lathes, high-speed cutters, and rotating cutters are used on longer runs and larger physical sizes of products. Other cutters can be used on long continuous runs and guillotine cutters are used on long-length and larger cross-sections.
