What is an O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A?

An O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A is a special sealing ring made of nitrile rubber, a synthetic polymer valued for its excellent chemical resistance to oils, greases, and fuels. The hardness of 55 Shore A makes the O-ring suitable for a wide range of sealing applications in various industries.

Due to its composition, it offers durable performance and reliable sealing, even under demanding conditions. Because of its chemical resistance, it is often used in hydraulic and pneumatic systems, as well as in automotive applications and machine construction, where it is essential for maintaining seals against oil and grease.

The combination of flexibility and resistance to media makes the O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A a popular choice for critical sealing applications where reliability and durability are essential.

Properties of an O-ring NBR -55 Shore A

The O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A is known for its specific hardness, measured on the Shore A scale, which indicates how soft or hard the material is. With a Shore A hardness of 55, the O-ring has a medium to soft texture, giving it excellent flexibility without compromising sealing performance.

This softness makes the O-ring resilient and able to adapt to various surfaces, ensuring effective sealing even at low torque levels. The flexible properties of the nitrile rubber also help to reduce wear and extend the life of the seal, making it cost-effective in use.

Because it is not too hard, the O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A retains its sealing capacity over a wide temperature range and under various pressure conditions. This makes it ideal for applications where flexibility and reliable sealing are essential, such as in hydraulic and pneumatic systems, where it consistently delivers optimal performance.

If you are looking for an O-ring with a higher hardness, you can take a look at this overview of all our NBR O-rings.

The benefits of 55 Shore A

The O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A offers unique advantages due to its exceptional flexibility and softness. This O-ring, made of nitrile rubber, is particularly suitable for applications where a soft seal is crucial. The 55 Shore A hardness ensures that the O-ring easily adapts to irregularities and imperfections in sealing surfaces, resulting in superior sealing even at low pressure.

This property makes it ideal for delicate equipment and systems where minimal deformation forces are required. Despite its softness, it retains excellent resistance to oils, fuels, and various chemicals, increasing its usability in the automotive and industrial sectors.

Moreover, the flexible properties of the O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A lead to less wear and a longer lifespan, reducing maintenance costs and enhancing operational efficiency.

Applications of the O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A

The O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A is widely used in various industries due to its unique properties. It finds broad application in hydraulic systems, pneumatic systems, automotive applications, and machine construction, especially where sealing against oils and greases is essential for optimal performance and reliability.

In hydraulic systems, this O-ring ensures leak-proof seals, even under high pressure and in contact with hydraulic fluids. In pneumatic systems, it offers durable sealing properties, preventing air from escaping and maintaining the system's efficiency.

In the automotive industry, it plays a crucial role in engine applications, fuel systems, and other components where resistance to oils and fuels is necessary. In machine construction, it is used for seals in moving parts, where its flexibility and durability extend the lifespan of machines. The versatility of the O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A makes it a reliable choice for critical applications in various sectors.

The drawbacks of 55 Shore A NBR O-rings

The O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A, while flexible and soft, also has some drawbacks. Due to its low hardness, it is less suitable for applications with high pressure or where strong mechanical loads occur. This O-ring can deform or compress more quickly under high pressure, leading to reduced sealing performance and potential leaks. Additionally, it may be less durable in harsh industrial environments where wear and tear from constant mechanical stress can be an issue.

The softness of 55 Shore A also means that this O-ring is more prone to extrusion at high pressures, especially if the groove designs are not optimal. This can result in more frequent maintenance and replacement, ultimately increasing costs and downtime. Therefore, the O-ring NBR - 55 Shore A is best suited for low-pressure and less demanding applications, where its flexibility and adaptability can be fully utilized without the mentioned drawbacks.
