The Parker O-Ring and Sealant Difference

O-rings are one of the most commonly used seals in machine design. They can be small, but they’re unbelievably important.

MFCP carries a huge variety of Parker o-rings. We know that each project is different, and you need the right parts. That’s why we carry a ton of o-ring inventory – we are committed to helping you find the parts you need, when you need them. Let us know how we can help. 

When you choose an o-ring from Parker, you know you are getting a top-of-the-line product. That’s because Parker is a leading manufacturer and creates innovative products with superior standards.

Their technologically advanced sealing devices and materials can handle the rigors of a modern machine, from high temperatures to aggressive chemistry.

Not all o-rings are the same, and poorly made seals can cause o-ring failure. But with Parker, you can rest assured you are getting a superior seal, so when you are looking for a quality product you can count on, Parker is the name to trust.

Parker O-Ring Handbook

O-rings are more than just a simple rubber seal and Parker knows that it can be difficult to know what type of o-ring you need. They created the Parker O-Ring Handbook to help answer your questions and walk you through everything you need to know about o-rings. The handbook includes o-ring basics, seal types, and the primary uses of the o-rings currently available.

Our knowledgeable staff knows the handbook front to back and can help you find the information you need. Many of our staff have worked with us for decades, and their unparalleled knowledge of Parker products gives us a distinct advantage over other distributors.

O-Ring Materials

O-rings are designed for static and dynamic applications and come in a variety of materials. Some of the materials we carry include ethylene propylene, nitrile, silicone, fluorocarbon (viton), parofluor (Kalrez), aflas, and fluorosilicone.

They are used in a range of industries from aerospace and general industrial to life science and more. We offer a large selection of materials and standard sizes, but if you can’t find exactly what you need, Parker can custom make an o-ring to fit your application.

O-Ring Accessories

An o-ring job is easier to complete with the proper accessories. That’s why we carry the accessories needed for your project, including Parker o-ring lube, sizing cones, and installation tools.

The right lubricant protects an o-ring, helps it to seat properly, provides a surface film, and more.

Choosing Parker o-ring lube with your Parker o-rings makes sense because you know that all of your parts are made to the same high standards of excellence for superior performance.
