Surface Conditions and Flashes
Standards

1) The International Organization of Standardization (ISO) is a global federation that comprises of representatives from diverse national standards organizations.

2) ISO 3601-3 states the quality acceptance criteria for o-rings used in complex fluid systems. The dimensions are standardized in ISO 16031-1, ISO 16031-2, and ISO 3601-1.

3) ISO 3601-3 defines the surface imperfections present on o-rings and specifies the highest acceptable limits for those defects.

4) ISO 3601-3 is also relevant to o-rings used in aerospace applications.

Surface defects and flashes on o-rings are determined by cleanliness, tolerance, and finish. These imperfections are established during the production process of o-rings. Several causes include:

  • Inaccurate de-burring
  • Insufficient flow of the elastomer
  • Inclusion of air
  • Inaccurate de-burring
  • Inaccurate temperatures

Grades

The elastomer grades specify the quality level with respect to its surface condition. They are as follows:

1) Grade N (General Purpose) – Acceptance standards for o-rings intended for general use.

2) Grade S (Special) – Acceptance standards for o-rings intended for applications needing good quality and precision with regards to dimensional tolerances of surface defects.

3) Grade CS (Critical Service) – Acceptance standards for o-rings intended for applications needing high quality and precision with regards to dimensional tolerances of surface defects.
