The team at Challenge Europe have found that alongside their core threaded fastener range, there is a demand for sealing “O” rings on an urgent basis – and consequently decided to enhance stock levels to meet the need.

Common requirements for “O” rings come in Nitrile (NBR), EPDM, Viton®, Silicone, Polyurethane and Neoprene with many others also called for to suit the needs of practically every industrial sector.

Challenge Europe can support both production line requirements and supply as consumable items for manufacturing plant. Indeed, any application where seals for liquids and gasses are an essential requirement. Challenge Europe stock standard metric and imperial sizes to ensure that production lines keep moving and maintenance operations can proceed smoothly.

These “O” rings function as seals between fixed faces in static assemblies or as dynamic seals between moving components, e.g. in cylinder and piston configurations or on rotating shafts in valving equipment.

Back-up rings are also available in a range of materials and styles.
