Poly twisted O-rings were created with one goal in mind: save downtime. The switch from endless polyurethane O-rings to twisted polyurethane 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 poly twisted O-rings averages three months with regular use. While this may be significantly shorter than that of endless polyurethane O-rings, you will still save downtime.


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

The Switch

Due to the stretch factor of twisted poly 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.
