An O-ring, also known as a packing or a toric joint, is a mechanical gasket in the shape of a torus; it is a loop of elastomer with a round cross-section, designed to be seated in a groove and compressed during assembly between two or more parts, creating a seal at the interface. O-rings are one of the most widely utilized sealing products because they’re inexpensive, reliable and have simple mounting requirements. O-rings can be used in a variety of static (non-moving) and dynamic (moving) applications. O-rings are frequently supplemented with a lubricant to assist in installation and sealing asperities.
