VMQ O-Rings provide an excellent resistance to aging, oxygen, ozone, UV rays as well as a wide temperature range including a high flexibility into cold environment. VMQ is also a good electrical insulator and is highly gas permeable.
Because of their low mechanical properties, VMQ O-Rings are mainly used in static applications. In other words, their low tear resistance and high friction coefficient make them difficult to use in dynamic sealing applications.
VMQ-made O-Rings (Silicone rubber / Polysiloxane of Vynile-Methyle) are usually red-colored.
