Nitrile Rubber Strip

Nitrile rubber is a synthetic rubber co-polymer of acrylonitrile and butadiene. Also known as Buna-N or NBR, Nitrile rubber is resistant to aliphatic hydrocarbons, oils and fuels; and has a temperature range of -20 ˚C to + 100˚C. It is similar to commercial and natural rubber, as it can be attacked by UV/Ozone. Nitrile is popularly used in the aeronautical, petrochemical and automotive industries as O rings, gaskets and seals.

The main advantages of specifying Nitrile rubber are:

  • It exhibits an impressive resistance to water-based chemicals as well as vegetable based hydraulic oils
  • Nitrile rubber is available in a good range of thickness
  • We keep sheet material in stock to ensure quick turnaround times
  • Nitrile can be moulded or extruded to create a variety of complex shapes and designs
  • It has good resistance to oils and fuel
  • Depending on the grade, Nitrile rubber is available in a variety of shore hardnesses
