No I don't but a number of years [20] ago the o-rings I used to use in my profession went to silicon from rubber...silicon lasts a lot longer and less UV damage..that is why I asked..just are correct I will bet that all o-ring chain manuf use the same material and I will also bet it is silicon..

Good job on test...but you have WAY too much spare time!
