O-Rings and Radial Seals

What are O-Rings?

O-rings are a type of gasket that has a circular profile in a ring shape used to seal surfaces together. Other profiles such as X, U, and V are also used in ring-shaped gaskets for more specific applications.

Standard O-Rings

Boyd stocks more than 150 million O-Rings in eight popular O-Ring compounds spanning all AS568 standard sizes as well as common metric sizes. Boyd’s standard O-Rings are stocked and ready for immediate shipment in the US.

Custom O-Rings

Boyd has a broad range of specialty compounds, designed to suit your specific O-Ring requirements. Most of these specialty compounds can be further customized with coatings and fillers to meet your unique specifications such as color, hardness, and FDA compliance.

Quad Rings & Square Rings

X-Rings are a specialized type of radial seal that have an X shaped cross section instead of a round cross section like O-rings. X-Rings help reduce friction and wear while maintaining a seal. Square Rings, or flat elastomeric washers, are fabricated from compliant material to mate surfaces of harder materials.

Caps & Plugs

Molded rubber plugs, caps, and stoppers seal holes, openings, and containers. Boyd provides a range of custom solutions for your plug, cap, or stopper geometries from our extensive portfolio of rubber and plastic compounds to meet demanding temperature ranges and chemical resistance requirements for virtually any environment.
