Sizing Orings

oringdiagram.jpgNo matter if you are trying to size a metric or an inch oring you need to know two important numbers. 

1) You need to know the ID or inside diameter

2) You need to know the CS or cross section sometimes known as the thickness

Once you have these two numbers you can find the oring on our website. 

For Metric Orings:

If the metric size you need for example is :

3 x 2mm (ID x CS) 

You place you mouse over  "Metric B70 Orings" which means you want your orings made of Buna 70 durometer and then you will see all the cross sections listed so just click on 2mm cross section to find the 3 x 2mm orings you need.

For Inch Orings:

Inch orings come in 5 standard CS-thicknesses and they are:

                     1/16 - 3/32 - 1/8 - 3/16 - 1/4

On our homepage near the top click on "Oring Size Chart" and there you will find 6 boxes. Each box will contain all the ID-inside diameters available in that CS-thickness with a Dash size or part# to the left of the dimension. Once you have the Dash size of what you need just go back to the home page and click on the left under categories for the oring material you want. All inch orings are in numerical order beginning with Dash size 001 and continuing to size 435.
