X-Rings have a double sealing function as compared to an O-ring and can be used in a wide variety of static and dynamic sealing applications.

The four-lobed design provides twice the sealing surface in comparison to a standard o-ring. The double-seal action requires less squeeze to maintain an effective seal. This reduction in squeeze means less friction and improved seal life.

Additionally, X-Ring parting lines are between the lobes, away from the sealing surface. This eliminates the issue of leakage often resulting from a parting lines irregular surface as found on an O-Ring.

X-Rings are also designed to outperform a standard O-Ring in rotary seal applications. The four-lobed configuration creates a more stable seal to avoid spiral twisting. This allows the use of a narrower groove width than a standard O-Ring groove, but can also be used in a standard O-Ring groove.
