Wills Rings(reg) C seal features a "C" profile and exhibits performance characteristics appropriate for operation in demanding static-sealing applications. The seal also provides a spring-back ability to absorb and counter deformations in hardware. Wills Rings C has a low seating load, contributing to a potential reduction in overall component weight--a significant consideration for applications where the design envelope weight and size are critical to performance.
