Improve System Reliability and Lifetime with Gaskets and O-Rings

Gaskets and O-Rings are primarily static seals used to prevent leaks or provide cushion between two opposing surfaces compressed together. O-Rings and Gaskets fill space between mating substrates, compensate for surface irregularities, and can be placed within a groove or cavity to help contain the seal for consistent placement.

Gasket and O-Ring seals are typically constructed from engineered elastomeric materials with custom designed compression force deflection, hardness, compression set resistance and other performance factors. These material characteristics are custom selected enable the seal to conform to less than perfect mating surface finishes or create a pliable, elastic layer between two hard substrates.

Surface irregularities provide leakage paths while friction between two hard substrates creates excessive surface wear and contamination from surface grinding. Boyd’s gasket and o-ring solutions complement rigid substrates and compensate for surface irregularities helping to reduce wear and tear, protect against ingress damage, and prevent contamination from grinding surfaces.
