X RINGS also known as Four Lobed Rings are used in a variety of static & dynamic sealing applications.
The Four Lobed design provides twice the sealing surface in comparison to a standard O rings.
The double seal action requires less squeeze reducing friction & improving seal life.
X RINGS outperform standard O rings in rotary seal applications. The four lobed configuration avoids spiral twisting.
It allows the use of a more narrow groove width than a standard O ring groove but works fine even in a standard O ring groove.
O-Rings are manufactured from over 15 different Polymers which include
Nitrile (NBR), Fluorocarbon (Viton®), Silicon (VMQ), Fluorosilicone (FVMQ), Polyurethane, PTFE , Natural Rubber (NR), Ethylene Propylene (EPDM), Hydrogenated Nitrile Rubber (H-NBR), Carboxylated Nitrile Rubber(X-NBR), Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), Perfluoroelastomer (FFKM), Chloroprene (Neoprene®).
