Check valve spec Q's

Unread postAuthor: Eddbot » Wed Feb 27, 2008 1:04 am

I was looking on McMaster for check valves, I found it in the catalogue, but on the right side the price list is divided into two columns. One for a Buna-N Seat, and one for a Viton Seat. and i have no idea what they mean... any info would be greatly appreciated.
