Elastomers Comparison of Properties
The chart matches the general rubber properties required in most O-ring applications with the capabilities of commonly used elastomers. Since no one elastomer is rated “excellent” for all properties, compromises are sometimes necessary when selecting an elastomer for a specific O-ring application. Start with the most critical properties to narrow your choices.
|E=Excellent||G=Good||F= Fair||P=Poor||E*=Special Compound Available|
