What Are Twisted Cotton O-Rings?

Rope twisted O-rings are the longer-lasting alternative to twisted polyurethane, and the easier-installation alternative to endless polyurethane O-rings. These may be the most time-saving O-rings for you and your facility. The switch to twisted cotton O-rings could save you hours of downtime each year. To make it even better, we will do most of the legwork for you, with the obvious exception of installing them. All you need to do is test the free sample and start saving!


These twisted O-rings sport a hook-and-loop on either end, allowing for an installation without a line shaft breakdown. Simply span the band around your two rollers or roller and line shaft, then connect the two ends together. It is that easy.

Life Span

The lifespan of rope twisted O-rings averages 10-14 months with regular use. While this may be shorter than that of endless polyurethane O-rings, you will still vastly save downtime.


Twisted poly O-rings range in length, starting at five inches. The most common diameters are: 1/8”, 3/16”, 1/4”.


Colored bands are available for easy identification. Our available colors are: blue, red, orange, yellow, black, white, and green.

The Switch

Due to the stretch factor of twisted cotton O-rings versus that of other O-ring options on the market, we must calculate appropriate sizing based on an application measurement or the measurement of your current, unused O-ring.
