ERIKS Cord FKM 70 Compound 514308
You can easily and quickly make a new O-ring with the black FKM* O-ring cord from ERIKS. You use this product in static applications in general industry. It offers standardised quality and meets the tolerance requirements of ISO3302-1, class E2.
*FKM is often referred to by the brand name Viton.
This O-ring cord has an operating temperature range of -20°C to +200°C.
An O-ring cord is a good solution for systems where there is no or hardly any pressure. If your application does involve pressure, you should order a custom-made O-ring. The Vulc-O-ring from ERIKS is a good option in such cases. This seal is also made from a cord, but the ends are vulcanised (rather than glued). As a result, the Vulc-O-ring can withstand pressure to some degree. Vulcanised O-rings are used in the same way as normal O-rings in static applications.

FKM is a high-quality fluoroelastomer that is resistant to acids, bases, oils and greases. This material is also highly resistant to ageing and UV radiation. It is often used in combination with a vacuum. For sealing steam, you should preferably use EPDM, HNBR or FFKM, depending on the application.
