O-Rings for Scuba Dive Breathing Appliances – The Story of ScubaGaskets

0

The Story of ScubaGaskets go back to 2006 when the absence of high quality reliable scuba O-rings in the market, drove a sales man and a scuba dive center owner-technician from Cyprus to do something about it in order not to be dependent on the scuba service kits that was costing a lot of money. This was made possible due, to a very tight cooperation with a leading company named Europe seals BV Holland, that is a leading company in the area of seals and O-rings for more than 30 years, with the strictest quality procedures in place.

At first, 3 product categories were launched (NBR Sh70 soft, NBR Sh90 Hard, and Viton Sh75-90) with just 35 or so O-ring sizes, covering the most basic needs of scuba diving industry. The  first years things where very hard since the market of Scuba o-rings is very small and the necessity  to go globally was very soon identified. In the following years the first web site  of scubagaskets was created with high expectations of selling globally, those so specialized scuba o-rings, but the reality was that no one knew scuba gaskets even existed apart from Cyprus customers!

A lot of effort was made in order to get some international orders and eventually on 2010 the first orders from overseas arrived! So scuba gaskets wend even deep in the area of scuba o-rings since they want to offer the best gaskets for scuba applications at a cost effective manner.

The average diver might be aware of two main categories of O-rings commonly used in SCUBA equipment NBR and Viton, and maybe two different O-ring hardness Soft (duro-Sh70-75) and Hard (duro-Sh85-90). The reality is that  a great variety of materials is used in O-ring industry such as Nitrile or else called Buna-N, EPDM, Polyurethane and Viton® just to name a few. However,there are many subtypes even within each compound category and hardness, each having its own properties and each having its own recommended field of use.

Nowadays a great variety of O-rings are used, in scuba equipment than the traditional NBR-Buna-N material (Sh70-90), like EPDM Sh70, EPDMSh85, Viton® Sh75 -Sh90, Polyurethane Sh70-Sh90 and so on, making very difficult to for dive industry related people to find and choose the correct o-rings for their needs. The importance of the correct  o-ring used during servicing scuba gear equipment is vital. For this reason ScubaGaskets identify as many as possible o-rings used in scuba dive industry ending up, 12 years latter, having 10 different product categories with more than 240 different products to offer specifically for Scuba Dive Breathing Appliances.
