O-ring cord is primarily used for special dimensions or instead of standard O-rings for immediate delivery. Because O-ring cords are cheap and simple sealing element, they have a very wide range of application in hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
Where working conditions and equipment are suitable, they can be used both in static and low pressure dynamic applications, but they are not recommended for rotary movements.
Because they take up less space and provide two-sided sealing compared with other sealing elements, Oring cords make designing easier. Achieving good results from O-ring cord applications depends on suitable measurements, choosing correct materials and suitable surface quality of sealing surfaces.
