An O-ring, also known as a packing, or a toric joint, is a mechanical gasket in the shape of a torus; it is a loop of elastomer with a round cross-section, designed to be seated in a groove and compressed during assembly between two or more parts, creating a seal at the interface.


O-rings are essential for all industrial and residential purposes. Because the o-rings prevent leakage of liquids, oils, and water. O-rings are very important to prevent water and oil leakage.
