When customers are faced with an application that requires custom sized o-rings, Daemar can help. The company’s experienced team can provide customers with high-quality custom o-rings thanks, in large part, to its extensive inventory of inch and metric cord diameters, as well as its large range of elastomers and durometers. An added bonus: its vulcanizing process is structured to meet the most demanding turnaround times.
For applications requiring a non-standard diameter o-ring, a custom vulcanized o-ring is often the fastest and most cost-effective solution. Daemar’s custom vulcanized rings are produced from extruded o-ring cord, cut to length and hot spliced using heated dies and a heat-sensitive bonding agent. The heated die provides consistent heat and helps to form a clean and visually appealing finish to the joint. Most of the company’s elastomers can be vulcanized.
Cold spliced o-rings are also produced from extruded o-ring cord stock; however, instead of being heat bonded, they have a bond agent applied and are pressed together with no heat applied. This process is typically used on foam elastomers where heat would damage the material.
Daemar’s extensive inventory of standard stock o-ring cord helps it deliver solutions quickly to its customers. Cord sizes from 0.063 to two inches, and one to 30 millimetres, are available for the company’s core elastomers, which include Nitrile, Viton, Silicone, Sponge Silicone, Neoprene, EPDM and AFLAS. In addition, the standard profile shapes available include round, square, rectangular, quad (X), U-channels and tubing. These profiles are available in many of the standard elastomers.
