Material range from Silicone, Fluorosilicone, EPDM, Neoprene & Nitrile.
An O–ring is torus shaped comprised of an elastomeric circular cross-section into a designed o-ring groove, providing an initial compression to seal and prevent the passing of air or fluid.
One of our most popular materials utilises Silicone which offers a number of unique properties: it is noted for its wide temperature range from -100°C to +260°C
O rings made from this material offers a very good low-temperature flexibility compared to all other elastomers; good ozone and weather resistance.
At Plastic Shims and Gaskets we offer expert advice from simple to complex intricate designs to consistently manufacture to a high quality components.
They are ideal for use in both static applications, anywhere there is a relative motion between two parts of the machine.
Engine and transmission oil
Fire-resistant hydraulic fluid,HFD-R & HFD-S
High temperature (Dry heat)
Ozone and weather resistance
With applications that require EMI-shielding properties an extra particle filler are added which include Silver, copper, nickel or graphite to provide an conductive interface seal for industries including.
Telecommunications, Military, Medical, Aerospace and Automotive.
