o-ring sizing chart

Available here is a PDF format o-ring sizing chart showing o-ring dimensions for standard size o-rings. It is grouped by cross section and sorted by inside diameter.


o-ring lube

Lubricants are often used in o-ring assembly to prevent damage, to help seat the o-ring and can offer protection as a surface film. Parker offers a standard o-lube as well as a super o-lube. Click the o-ring lubricant link above for more info.
