Sealing Rings

The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it.

Sealing Rings

Flextron offers both gaskets and individual O-ring seals. These components can be used as both static and dynamic gaskets. They are remarkable due to their high elasticity and thus are also ideal for use in pistons, cylinders and shafts or as parts of a flange attachment. Moreover, we also have several years of expertise in the manufacturing of sealing rings made from medical grade silicone (VQM). They can be used for example, for vibration damping.

We produce in-house variety of different compounds from chosen manufacturers. This allows us to give you a range of materials and to refine the chemical and mechanical characteristics of the elastomers and to tailor them to their particular use.


Sealing ring types

We create two styles of seal ring: the stationary seal ring and the adaptive seal ring. The static sealing ring stands up to its name as it does not shift, even when the fluctuation is triggered by the force of the cycle. Sealing rings that are prone to rotation are responsive sealing rings.


Compounds of the sealing ring

The various sealing ring kinds are available in a wide range of compounds. Following is a collection of our sealing ring compound types, in an alphabetical sequence:

  • ACM PolyAcrylate
  • Aflas®
  • EPDM
  • Fluorsilicone / FVMQ
  • High Purity compounds
  • HNBR / X-NBR
  • Kalrez® / FFKM
  • Neoprene / CR
  • Nitrile / NBR
  • SBR
  • Silicone / VMQ
  • TPeRX®
  • Viton® / FKM

Every sealing ring is designed to the Flextron material specification standards.


Uses of seal rings

High-pressure sealing

High-pressure tolerance is a standard prerequisite for industrial o-rings, along with stable performance in high temperature and volatile conditions. In order for the high-pressure seal to operate at an optimum stage, the design and manufacture of the o-ring again rely on the choice of particular materials for improved performance under particular conditions.

Engines

An engine o-ring, particularly one utilized in high-performance or turbo engines, is a great example of a component that needs to be durable enough in materials and construction structure to satisfy different demanding specifications in terms of temperature, stress and chemical functionality.

Many simple rubbers and polymers are not appropriate to be used with oils, fuels or solvent-based substances. For use in the engine, the oil o-ring must be made specially from suitable hybrid materials that allow it to retain essential o-ring properties (mobility, incompressibility) while providing more durable resilience to heat, friction, o-ring leakage and chemical attack than the typical elastomer would usually have been able to do.

Plumbers

Plumbing o-ring options are extensive, considering the variety of fabrics, sizes and gauges accessible for use in ducting and piping applications, and also the formation of strong waterproof seals between taps and other fittings. Selecting the perfect product for your work relies on choosing the perfect size and form for the particular task you have in mind.


What are the various types of sealing rings?

  • O-ring seals

  • Stainless steel O-ring seals

Frequently Asked Questions

The sealing ring, often identified as the "torus," acts in tandem with the glands in which it is mounted. The gland is normally cut from the metal hardware and operates with the O-Ring for sealing. The gland and the O-Ring should be engineered together to achieve the best efficiency.
