Polyurethane O-rings

Polyurethane (PU) O-rings are elastomeric seals made from polyurethane materials. They offer several advantages compared to traditional rubber O-rings like Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) or Fluoroelastomer (FKM) O-rings. Some key features and benefits of polyurethane O-rings include:

  1. Abrasion Resistance: Polyurethane O-rings are highly resistant to abrasion, making them suitable for applications where there is sliding or rubbing contact.

  2. Tear Resistance: They have excellent tear resistance, making them durable and long-lasting, especially in dynamic sealing applications.

  3. Chemical Resistance: Polyurethane O-rings offer good resistance to many oils, fuels, hydraulic fluids, and solvents, although their resistance may vary depending on the specific formulation.

  4. Wide Temperature Range: They can operate effectively in a wide range of temperatures, from low temperatures to high temperatures, without significant loss of properties.

  5. High Load-Bearing Capacity: Polyurethane O-rings can withstand high pressures and loads, making them suitable for high-pressure sealing applications.

  6. Versatility: They are available in various formulations and hardness levels, allowing for customization to meet specific application requirements.

  7. Water and Weather Resistance: Polyurethane O-rings have good resistance to water and weathering, making them suitable for outdoor applications.

  8. Ease of Installation: They have good flexibility, which facilitates easy installation into grooves or assemblies.

Polyurethane O-rings are commonly used in hydraulic systems, pneumatic systems, sealing applications in heavy machinery and equipment, automotive components, and other industrial applications where their unique combination of properties is beneficial.
