5.00×1.00 EPDM 70 Black O-Ring
5.00×1.00 EPDM 70 Black O-Ring

An O-ring is a loop of elastomer/rubber with a round cross-section, designed to be seated in a groove and compressed during assembly between two or more parts, creating a seal.

The O-ring may be used in static or dynamic applications where there is relative motion between the parts and the O-ring. Dynamic examples include rotating pump shafts and hydraulic cylinder pistons.

O-rings are one of the most common seals used in machine design because they are inexpensive, easy to make, reliable, and have simple mounting requirements. They can seal tens of megapascals (thousands of psi) of pressure.

EPDM is a copolymer of ethylene and propylene, combined with a terpolymer of ethylene, propylene, and a third monomer (usually a diolefin) to permit vulcanization with sulfur. Ethylene Propylene Rubber possesses excellent resistance to ozone, sunlight, and weathering. It also has very good flexibility at low temperatures, has good chemical resistance, and good electrical insulation properties.


Standard Compound: -40°C (-40°F) to 125°C (257°F)

Special Compound: -55°C (-67°F) to 150°C (302°F)

Hardness: 30 to 90 Shore A

ASTM D1418 Designation: EPM, EPDM

ASTM D2000 Designation: AA, BA, CA, DA

Standard Colors: Black

Optional Colors:

EPDM’s can be sulfur or peroxide cured which affects the temperature and hardness and compression set properties of the material. Standard EPDM’s are usually sulfur cured which offers better flexibility. Peroxide cured EPDM’s have better heat resistance and lower compression set. EPDM’s often have specialty coatings applied to improve ease of installation or to reduce friction.

EPDM rubber compounds perform well in alcohols, automotive brake fluid, ketones, dilute acids and alkalis, silicone oils and greases, steam to 204°C (400°F), water, phosphate ester based hydraulic fluids Skydrol(R)), ozone, aging and weathering.

EPDM rubber compounds are susceptive to aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, di-ester based lubricants, halogenated solvents, petroleum based oils and greases, and have no resistance to hydrocarbon fluids.
