Order O-Rings Online - Quick and Easy Since 2007 from The O-Ring Store LLC

An O-ring is a solid-rubber seal shaped like a doughnut or torus. When compressed between mating surfaces, an O-ring blocks the passage of liquids or gases. O-rings are available in a wide range of standard and non-standard sizes that are suitable for nearly all sealing applications. Two dimensions describe the size of an O-ring: its inside diameter (ID) and its cross-sectional diameter (CS).

The standard sizes used by major O-ring manufacturers are defined by Aerospace Standard AS568A, Aerospace Size Standard for O-rings. That document, published by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), lists the sizes of O-rings in six series or groups in both inches and millimeters. The first five series are based on cross-sectional diameter, the sixth series includes 20 sizes for boss seals:

  • 0 series, -000 Series - 1/16" CS - 0.070" CS
  • 1 series, -100 Series - 3/32" CS - 0.103" CS
  • 2 series, -200 Series - 1/8" CS - 0.139" CS
  • 3 series, -300 Series - 3/16" CS - 0.210" CS
  • 4 series. -400 Series -1/4" CS - 0.275" CS
  • 9 series, -900 Series includes 20 sizes for Boss SAE Straight Thread O-Ring Seals
