Clear O-Rings Industry Information

Clear O-Rings

Depending on the material they are made of, O-rings can come in many different colors like black, brown, green, red, and blue. Only a few, however, offer a transparent color. Silicone, polyurethane, and Teflon are able to produce a clear O-ring product. Without any color additives, these materials are semi-clear, not totally transparent in natural form. However, certain additives are able to produce ultra-clear silicone.

Applications of Clear O-Rings

Clear O-rings are used in many industries, such as:

  • Medical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Food Processing
  • Dairy
  • Biotech

Like all O-rings, they are used for sealing and gasketing applications. O-rings create a seal when they are pressed between two or more parts of a product or system while it is being assembled. The product or system that needs sealing usually involves vacuums or piping.

Clear O-Ring Design

Clear O-rings are doughnut shaped, flat, and thin. O-rings are set up as a static seal or with dynamic joints. As a static seal, clear O-rings are permanently sealed in one spot, assuring that whatever substance within the system will not leak out. Dynamic joints refer to the part of O-rings in a fluid system, like a hydraulic cylinder. In such a situation, an O-ring would need to be well-lubricated to protect it from the fast deterioration that comes from being in between moving parts. Silicone is the most common material for producing clear O-rings. It is derived from quartz and mixed with methyl, phenyl, and vinyl, which improve its rubber properties but won’t change its transparency. It is produced from fine silica instead of carbon, which makes other rubber materials black. Clear silicone may be easily colored yet retain its transparent properties. It is always non-toxic, so it is often the first choice in medical, pharmaceutical, and food processing applications. Silicone exhibits high temperature resistance (between -58 and 302°F) and, because O-rings are generally thinner, they have good tensile and tear strength. Temperature resistance, size, color, and flexibility are all characteristics that must be considered when choosing an O-ring. There are a few varieties of O-ring ridges, developed because the various grips will suit certain applications better than others. Clear O-rings vary in this just like all O-rings. The most common O-ring ridge is the round cross-section, which is a simple clean circle sealing everyday objects like faucets and engines.

Benefits of Using Clear O-Rings

The positive characteristics of a clear O-ring, considered a seal or gasket, include flexibility, chemical inertness, and odorlessness when in a solid state. As just one branch of the O-ring family, clear O-rings stand out because of their transparency. They are generally transparent in both UV light and visible light.
