X-Rings / Quad Ring Seals
X-Rings, also known as quad ring seals, provide technologically advanced sealing capabilities that surpass that of standard O-rings. Quad rings provide enhanced leak protection through its innovative design that avoids spiral twists, while utilizing parting lines between the lobes instead of on the sealing surface. Since X-Rings provide less friction due to their innovative design, they require less maintenance and provide a longer seal life compared to standard O-Rings.

Differences Between Quad Rings & O-Rings
There are several main differentiators that separate standard O-Rings from X-Ring’s four-lobed design. Standard O-Rings are built with a basic layout that provides simple leak protection, while Quad Rings have numerous advanced design qualities that allow them to provide enhanced protection. Quad Ring Seal’s offer a unique spiral twist design coupled with an inner lobe sealing surface that allows for prolonged seal life and improved operational quality.
Quad O-Ring Seal Advantages
X-Ring seals provide four direct points of support for a wide range of applications. The four-lobed design produces a more secure seal to counteract 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 X-Ring groove. Quad Ring benefits include:
- Less wear due to low friction, thus providing a longer service life
- Excellent sealing efficiency
- Improved startup with the lubricant reservoir formed between the sealing lips
- Increased stability in dynamic applications
- Enhanced rolling resistance
Quad Ring Seals & X-Ring Seals for All Applications
Ace Seal can manufacture quad rings in the size, profile, material, and durometer you need. However, please note that not every combination of these factors is possible—certain materials are not available in certain durometers, etc. Send us your quad ring and/or X-ring specifications and we will get back to you ASAP with a custom quote.
