International O-ring Sizes

An O-ring, or toroidal seal, is the most common type of seal used in the world today. 
Used to form a physical barrier to prevent the mixing of gases or liquid fluids, the simple toroidal shape of an O-ring has proven to offer high sealing efficiency across a wide range of applications.
