Once in its track, the Neoprene rubber O-ring is compressed between the two pieces and, in turn, creates a strong seal where they meet. The seal that a Neoprene rubber O-ring creates can either exist in a motionless joint, such as between piping, or a movable joint, such as a hydraulic cylinder.
They do not stand up well to shear forces and as such are not suited to rotary closure applications. In addition, the Neoprene rubbers used in O rings do not possess high abrasion resistance or tensile strength values.
An Neoprene rubber O-ring is a round ring that is used as a gasket for sealing a connection. The Neoprene rubber O-ring is commonly used in mechanical applications, such as pipe connections, and help to ensure a tight seal between two objects. The Neoprene rubber O-rings are designed to be seated in a groove or housing that keeps the ring in place. Once in its track, the ring is compressed between the two pieces and, in turn, creates a strong seal where they meet.
