Nitrile (Buna-N)
  • The most widely used O-Ring elastomer. Excellent resistance to petroleum products. Excellent compression set, tear and abrasion resistance. Does not have good resistance to ozone, sunlight, or wather, unless specifically compounded. Should not be stored in direct sunlight or near moters or other electrical equipment which may generate ozone. Temperature range:-40° to +250°F.

Fluorocarbon
  • Excellent mechanical and physical properties. Good resistance to petroleum products, low compression set, and high temperature resistance. Wide spectrum of chemical compatibility. Good for vacuum service and low gas permeability. Temperature range: -15° to +400°F (limited exposures to higher temperatures).

Chloroprene (Neoprene)
  • Moderately resistant to petroleum products. Good ozone and weather resistance. Good compression set. Excellent for sealing refrigeration fluids such as Freon®. Temperature range: -65° to +250°F.

Silicone
  • Recommended for applications requiring a wide temperature range and good dry heat resistance. Good weather and ozone resistance. Limited oil resistance. Not normally recommended for dynamic sealing applications due to relatively poor tensile and tear strength and relatively low abrasion resistance. Temperature range: -80° to +450°F.
