X-rings, also referred to in the industry as Quad-Rings, are characterized by a four lipped symmetric profile. They provide an alternative sealing option for use in dynamic applications.

There are several reasons you may select an X-ring over a standard O-ring. First, O-rings can be prone to roll from reciprocating movement.

The lobes of an X-ring create stability in a gland, maintaining contact in two locations against the sealing surface.

Second, the lobes of an X-ring create a reservoir for lubricant which reduces friction. Lastly, an X-ring does not require a high amount of squeeze, which also reduces friction and wear on the seal.

The X factor: X-Rings vs O-Rings

While O-rings and X-rings perform effectively in a wide range of applications, there are circumstances when an X-ring is the superior choice, significantly outperforming an O-ring. In this blog we'll be looking at the differences between the two and how to choose the correct sealing ring for your application.While O-rings and X-rings perform effectively in a wide range of applications, there are circumstances when an X-ring is the superior choice, significantly outperforming an O-ring. In this blog we’ll be looking at the differences between the two and how to choose the correct sealing ring for your application.In this article, we will explore these differences, delve into their specific applications, and even discuss their relevance in the world of motorcycle chains, including O-ring chains and X-ring chains.

What is an O-ring?

An O-ring is a loop of elastomer with a round cross-section, primarily used to seal two connecting parts in both static and dynamic applications. They are commonly used to prevent leaks between sealing surfaces and are often found in a variety of industrial applications, including motorcycle chains known as o-ring chains.

O-rings offer a simple yet effective way to make seals and prevent metal-on-metal contact between components, thus minimizing wear and extending seal life. Because of their versatility, O-rings are available in various materials like silicone, nitrile, and fluorocarbon, each offering unique benefits such as heat resistance.
