Buna-N 70 Durometer X-Rings

The four-lobed design with a specially developed sealing profile of these seals provides twice the sealing surface of ordinary O-rings. The four-lobed design not only provides lower fiction than an O-ring, but also, due to its square cross section, it resists spiral twist. X-Rings are available in a wide range of elastomer materials for both standard and special applications. Their dimensions are specified with the inside diameter "d1" and the cross-section "W." X-Rings are supplied to the American Standard AS-568A and are completely interchangeable with O-rings in these sizes. They can be used in a variety of static and dynamic sealing applications including rotary, reciprocating or oscillating motion.

Features:

  • There are two sealing surfaces to give a positive seal with less friction. Due to an improved pressure profile over X-Ring Seal cross-section, a high sealing effect is achieved.
  • The recessed mold parting line provides no flash or parting line on the surface of the seal and ensures "zero leakage." What's more, a lubricant reservoir formed between the sealing lips improves performance at start-up.
  • The X cross-section resists spiral twisting and extrusion. Due to its special profile, the seal does not tend to twist in the groove during reciprocating movement
  • Twice the sealing surface means less radial squeeze is needed to create an effective seal resulting in less friction, less wear and longer service life.

Buna-N O-Rings 70 Duro (NBR):

Nitrile, also known as Buna-N or NBR, is a copolymer of Butadiene and Acrylonitirle. It is the most commonly used elastomer for sealing products. It has a temperature range of -40F to +250F and is exceptionally resistant to petroleum base oils and hydrocarbon fuels. Nitrile materials also exhibit excellent tensile strength and abrasion resistance properties. The material performs well with most dilute acids, silicone oils and lubricants and in water applications. It is not recommended for use with ketones, aromatic hydrocarbons and phosphate ester hydraulic fluids. More than 50% of the Orings sold are Nitrile Orings, commonly used in hydraulic/pneumatic motors, cylinders, pumps and valves.

Buna-N / Nitrile Recommended uses:

  • General purpose sealing.
  • Petroleum oils and fluids.
  • Gasoline
  • Hydraulic fluids
  • L.P. gases
  • Cold Water.
  • Silicone greases and oils
  • Di-ester base lubricants (MIL-L-7808).
  • Ethylene glycol base fluids (Hydrolubes)

Nitrile is not recommended for:

  • Halogenated hydrocarbons (carbon tetrachloride, trichloroethylene)
  • Nitro hydrocarbons (nitrobenzene, aniline)
  • Phosphate ester hydraulic fluids (Skydrol, Fyrquel, Pydraul).
  • Ketones (MEK, acetone)
  • Ozone
  • Sunlight, UV
  • Weather
  • Strong Acids Ozone
  • Automotive brake fluid

Operating temperature: -40° to +250F°
