The tool is especially aimed at engineers who want to quickly and easily check their designs, or determine the correct parameters for selecting O-rings. The O-ring pros at COG made their primary […]
Sealing compounds used in the applications above often create a barrier against gaseous media if highly pressurized gas falls to a very low-pressure level within a very short period of time. The result of this process is often a damage of the sealing. The elastomer material is either torn in various places or blistering on […]
