From the widest size range of O-rings in the industry to the largest selection of microminiature O-rings in the world, learn more about Apple's standard products.
O- Rings: The widest size range of O-rings in the seal industry, including every AS-568 Standard;most metrics; and a wide variety of non-standard sizes. Available in all common and many special materials and durometers.
MacrOring® Seals:MacrOring® seals are manufactured by proprietary processes for greater strength and tighter tolerances than conventional, large sized bonded O-tings. Available in a broad range of sizes from 5" I.D. to 500" I.D. and in cross sections from .070" to 1". Available in the most popular materials.
MicrOring® Seals:The largest selection of microminiature O-rings anywhere. A MicrOring® seal is any O-ring that measures less than 1 mm in either inside diameter (I.D.) or cross section (C.S.). Over 2,000 sizes of MicrOring® seals,from .039" I.D. or C.S. down to .008" I.D., the world's smallest O-ring. Microminiature composite seals and customengineered microminiature seals also available on special order.
Filter Seals®: Innovative FilterSeals® are custom designed as a combination elastomer and fabric device that operates as both a seal and a filter. A wide variety of elastomers can be bonded to a variety of filter materials (TeflonTM Membrane, Nylon, Dacron,TM etc.). Provide cost and time savings - one part to purchase instead of two; one part to install.
Composite Seals: Custom-engineered composite seals incorporating the seal and another component into one part - increases performance and reduces assembly costs. Composite seals include complicated parts such as rubber bonded to metal and plastic.
ExpresSeal®: Advanced, computerized manufacturing technology which produces hydraulic and pneumatic seals in minutes for emergency replacements, hard-tofind parts, prototypes and more. U-cups, wipers, piston rings, bushings, back-up rings, wear rings, and O-rings also available from inventory.
LSR (Liquid Silicone Rubber) Parts and Seals: LSR parts and seals exhibit a wide temperature range (-85°F to 400°F), low compression set, and resistance to the damaging effects of sunlight and ozone. Available in a durometer range of 10-80 Shore A for virtually any type seal or part including O-rings, gaskets, face seals, housing seals, FilterSeals®, and custom shapes.
Housing Seals: Superior seals custom designed to fit specific housings. Ideal for a variety of applications, they outperform flat gaskets and other gasketing methods. Silicone housing (face) seals are generally reusable after disassembly, unlike RTV gaskets. Available in a range of hardnesses for plastic or metal housing requirements.
Custom Molded Shapes: Custom designed allrubber shaped seals to meet exact specifcations, including microminiature shapes. Examples include molded inserts, bushings, poppets, connector seals and piston seals. Custom shapes and seals are available in a wide variety of materials.
EMI Shielded O-Rings and Seals: Custom designed, EMI-shielded O-rings and seals for a variety of electronic applications provide an alternative to metallic coatings and other methods.
