Solid Nitrile Rubber

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd manufacture a diverse range of Nitrile Rubber in many different grades.

Nitrile Rubber is often referred to by many names including Buna N, Nitrile rubber, and NBR. Nitrile rubber is a copolymer of Butadiene and Acrylonitrile, although the Acrylonitrile content varies considerably depending on the grade chosen.

The higher the Acrylonitrile content in Solid Nitrile Rubber the better resistance to Oil and Fuel but unfortunately elasticity and compression is adversely affected at low temperatures.

The lower the Acrylonitrile content in Solid Nitrile Rubber results in lower resistance to Oils and Fuel but higher resistance to compression set at low temperatures with better elasticity.

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd are able to manufacture a wide variety of products from Nitrile Rubber including:

Nitrile Rubber is a synthetic material that is used in a wide range of applications, it offers moderate mechanical properties and has satisfactory resistance to aromatic hydrocarbons. Nitrile Rubber has an excellent resistance to grease, oil and pertroleum, and therefore popular choice for use within military, automotive and industrial machinery applications.

Key Characteristics of Solid Nitrile Rubber:

  • Shore Hardness: 60° ± 5°
  • Temperature: -20°C up to +70°C
  • Good resistance to petroleum, oils and greases
  • Commonly used in the automotive sector
  • Offers good abrasion resistance and tensile strength

Solid Nitrile Rubber is NOT RESISTANT to weathering and ozone for use with ketones.
