This O-Ring splicing kit is made of Black Buna-N, has a durometer of 70A, and includes common o-ring cord in metric cross sections. The splicing kit comes in a plastic box with cord stock, splicing jig, pencil, cutting tool, and adhesive.
Buna-nitrile can have high tensile strength, as well as abrasion, tear, and compression set resistance. It is compatible for use with petroleum, hexafluoroacetone (HFA), hexafluoro-2-butyne (HFB) and hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) fluids, vegetable oil, alcohol, acids, and aliphatic hydrocarbons. Buna-nitrile is vulnerable to acetone, ethers, esters, ozone, sunlight and weathering, and should not be used in ozone-generating electric motors, welding equipment, or in applications with exposure to UV light.
The durometer hardness of this Buna-N O-Ring cord is 70A. Durometers measure the hardness of a material and its resistance to permanent indentation. A higher durometer value indicates greater resistance to indentation. On a scale of 0 to 100, a value of 0 indicates that a sample was completely penetrated, while a value of 100 shows no indentation in the sample.
