Quad-Rings™ offer tremendous resistance to ring spiraling, a common failure mode of traditional O-rings.
Traditional O-ring grooves must be wide enough for O-rings to roll in order to prevent break away friction.
Quad-Rings™ have less squeeze over their life span which increases their seal life compared to traditional O-rings.
Quad-Rings™, or lobed rings, as designed to take the place of a traditional O-ring. These products fit in the same grooves as O-rings, and function much the same. Mold parting lines are located between the lobes, as opposed to one the actual sealing surface with O-rings. This eliminates a leak path compared to an O-ring.
