Vulcanized O-Rings

An O-ring is a type of mechanical gasket used primarily in static applications to provide reliable sealing. Vulcanizing an O-ring makes it impermeable by liquids and gases, further extending its potential list of applications. At Arizona Sealing Devices, we carefully consider user requirements and application details to identify the ideal sealing solution for every client. […]

Viton O-Rings and Sealing Devices Guide

Viton is a versatile, inert alternative material for O-rings, gaskets, and other sealing components. The material is well-regarded for its resistance to chemical damage and its stability in high-temperature and high-pressure environments. Available formulations of Viton offer varying degrees of hardness, enabling its use in products that meet food-grade or medical-grade standards, as well as […]

Silicone O-Rings and Sealing Devices Guide

Silicone is an elastomer that remains stable, flexible, and non-reactive in extreme conditions, making it ideal for seals, gaskets, and O-rings. O-rings are molded products placed between two mechanical parts to create a tight seal for preventing fluid or gas leakage and keeping out contaminants. Choosing a silicone O-ring provides greater flexibility and performance for […]

Buna, otherwise known as Nitrile, Buna-N or NBR, is an incredibly versatile synthetic rubber. The unique properties of this material make Buna an ideal material for O-rings, vulcanized or spliced O-rings, gaskets, and other sealing applications for various industries. Properties of Buna Buna offers many unique properties; making it the sealing industry‚Äôs most commonly used […]

O-Ring Materials Guide

Named for their standard circular shape, O-rings are versatile elastomer gaskets that form a tight seal between two mechanical components. However, while O-rings largely look alike and function similarly, there are actually key distinctions that determine where an O-ring may be used. Chief among these considerations is material selection. Despite their similar compositions, elastomers each […]

Guide to O-Ring Selection

O-rings are elastomeric and donut-shaped gaskets designed to create fluid-tight seals between mated parts within a fluid system. Although simplistic in design and function, these components perform a critical role. When used correctly in fluid handling and processing systems, they ensure process liquids and gases remain inside the proper areas and potential contaminants stay outside […]

How to Install O-Rings

O-rings are a vital tool for ensuring the effective operation of numerous vehicles, appliances, and other everyday items. Proper O-ring installation creates a strong seal, allowing the product to function efficiently without leakage. What is an O-Ring? While they may seem simple, O-rings actually serve an important purpose. This round, often rubber ring helps to […]
