Product Detail

Silicon O Ring or VCM O Ring

Silicone o-rings offer wide temperature ranges and low temperature flexibility. Silicone is renowned for its retention of flexibility and low

compression set characteristics. Silicone also has one of the widest working temperature ranges for elastomers. Silicone O-rings also

have good heat resistance, cold flexibility and insulating properties.

 

Not recommended for dynamic O-ring sealing applications. As its low tear strength and high coefficient of friction. Silicone also does not

perform well with Concentrated acids, fuels, gear Oils, ketones, steam., etc

 

Advantages

• Excellent resistance to oxygen, ozone and sunlight

• Excellent heat and compression resistance

• Resistance to fungal and biological attack

• Good chemical resistance

• Good electrical insulation

• FDA Standard

• Flexible

 

Application

• Mineral oils with low additive contents

• Food processing Machinery Industry

• Household appliance industry

• Sunlight, Ozone, Weathering

• Wide Temperature Range

• Medical industries

• Petrochemicals

• Electronics

• Dry Heat ., etc
