Regardless of all other critical design factors, if the basic composition of the O-ring material is not compatible with its chemical environment, the O-ring will eventually fail.
A primary step in O-ring selection, therefore, is to match your application's chemicals with the O-ring material that offers the best chemical resistance. To do this, refer to the Chemical Compatibility Table in section 6.
Recognizing seal feedability problems during the production process often occurs too late for a simple solution. That’s why we created a video that outlines exactly what you need to be on the lookout for.
