Made of fluorosilicone rubber for use with a variety of fluids
Can be used across a wide temperature range from -100 degrees F (-73 degrees C) to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C)
Round in cross-section to provide a seal between cylindrical overlapping surfaces
Durometer (hardness) of 70A for resistance to penetration
Meets standards defined by Aerospace Standard AS568A
This O-ring is made of blue fluorosilicone, is round in cross-section, has a durometer of 70A, and is designed for use in a wide variety of sealing applications.
Fluorosilicone has very good resistance to ozone, weathering, detergent, salt water, engine and transmission oil, non-petroleum brake fluid, hydraulic fluids that resist fire, vegetable and animal oils, high molecular weight chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons, and has better mineral oil, fuel, and aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene) compatibility than silicone. Fluorosilicone is acceptable for temperature applications between -100 degrees F (-73 degrees C) to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Like silicone, fluorosilicone is vulnerable to mechanical wear and tear, water and steam over 250 degrees F (121degrees C), chlorinated hydrocarbons (trichloroethylene), acids and bases, and hydrocarbon fuels.
This fluorosilicone O-ring has a shore durometer of 70A. Shore durometer is the hardness of a material, and its resistance to permanent indentation. A higher durometer value indicates greater resistance to indentation on a scale of 0 to 100, with 100 indicating no indentation.
O-rings commonly provide a pressure and fluid seal between cylindrically shaped, overlapping mating surfaces and are commonly seen in engines, faucets, flanges, valves, and various cylinders. They are circular in shape, with a round cross section and a hole in the center, similar to a doughnut. O-rings are available in various sizes, and can be ordered based on required nominal inside diameter (ID), outer diameter (OD), and cross-sectional (CS) diameter.
This fluorosilicone O-ring meets standards defined by Aerospace Standard AS568A, which is the Aerospace Size Standard for O-rings.
