What is QALO Q2X?

Meet our ultra tough silicone ring, with QALO Q2X™. Our Q2X™ silicone products are 10x more resistant to gasoline, resistant to oil and solvents, resistant to automotive and household chemicals, can handle up to 23lbs of force, non-conductive, and tolerant to temperatures up to 575°F.

Are silicone rings oil resistant?

Retention of properties of silicone at high temperature is superior to most other elastic materials. Resistant to hot air, ozone, UV radiation, engine and transmission oils (FVMQ), animal and vegetable fats and oils. Silicone can be compounded to be electrically resistant, conductive, or flame retardant.

What are QALO rings made of?

What is a QALO Ring Made From? QALO is made from the highest quality silicone. This means that the ring is far less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions to your skin than traditional metal. They’re stretch with your finger, meaning that your ring will never get “stuck” again.

Are silicone O-rings better than rubber O-rings?

In conclusion, silicone ‘O’ rings can be applied to high-temperature applications or where damage from the elements may otherwise be an issue. In such cases, there are several other rubber ‘O’ ring materials that offer a more well-rounded package of benefits, including thermal stability and chemical resistance.

What are silicone O-rings good for?

Silicone o-rings are excellent seal materials for static, high temperature applications. Featuring outstanding flex and fatigue life, ozone and UV radiation resistance, physiologically neutral and insulating properties, silicone o-rings are effective in a wide range of applications.

Are QALO rings safe?

In terms of wearing QALO rings, the silicone we use is non-hazardous, lightweight, and malleable. The factors that make silicone environmentally-friendly also make them safe for the average consumer to wear.

Is nitrile better than silicone?

Nitrile has high tensile strength and excellent wear and abrasion resistance. By contrast, silicone has poor abrasion resistance, and for dynamic applications where elastomers must have good wear characteristics, nitrile is a better choice. For outdoor applications, silicone is a clear winner.

What is AO ring used for?

What are o rings used for? O rings are used to block a path which may otherwise allow a liquid or a gas to escape. The o ring is placed into a groove to secure them in place, and then compressed between two surfaces.

Can you reuse O-rings?

In many cases an O-ring can be reused, an advantage over non-elastic flat seals and crush-type gaskets. The duration of life in the correct application corresponds to the normal aging period of the O-ring material. O-ring failure is normally gradual and easily identified.
