How should I store rubber parts, such as gaskets and o-rings?

  • Generally speaking, storage of rubber parts should be avoided because rubber parts age while in storage.

However, when it is necessary to store rubber parts, there are ways to slow the aging process:

  • Maintain the temperature in the storage room between > -10°C and < 20°C
  • Store in a dark room and avoid ultraviolet light
  • Do not keep ozone-producing equipment near or in the storage room
  • Do not store organic solvents, acids, odour-producing products, etc. in the storage room
  • Do not store rubber parts near radiator
  • Cover or keep the rubber parts in bags or boxes to reduce air circulation since exposure to air facilitates the aging process
  • Store the rubber parts flat, tangle free and free from tension
  • Store similar rubber parts of different material separately
