Nitrile Rubber Extrusion

Advanced Seals & Gaskets supply a vast array of high-quality nitrile rubber extrusions, manufactured in many forms from simple cylindrical cord to complex, multi-cavity contoured parts, all designed to perfectly seal against air, fluid gas and to be aesthetically pleasing where they are used as visible parts such as edge trims or buffers. Customers often make nitrile rubber their choice of extrusion material which has good abrasion resistance,  resistance to petrol and fuels, mineral & vegetable oils and some acids and alkalis.

All our nitrile extrusions are made to order, produced using dimensions, samples or drawings provided by customers, from which a tool or ‘die’ is made and a sample produced for approval, ensuring the final product perfectly fits the application. Nitrile rubber extrusions are preferred in automotive applications such as the production of hoses, seals and fuel tank seals.

    Extrusion

    Rubber extrusions are available using many materials including EPDM, neoprene, nitrile, silicone and Viton.  Although the production process is the same, each material has its own unique properties suited to different applications. If you need help choosing the material or type of extruded profile you need, please give a member of our sales team a call who will be happy to discuss the available options.

    Why use Nitrile Rubber Extrusion?

    Nitrile rubber extrusions can take many forms and profiles, all looking very different in appearance, but as they are produced using the exact same material, they will still all possess the same mechanical properties making it a popular choice across many industries. 

    Nitrile rubber extrusions are an excellent product for creating an air, dust and watertight seal, with good tensile strength, anti-abrasion properties and resistance to petrol, mineral & vegetable oils and some acids and alkalis.

    The material has some flame retardancy, and a working temperature range of -20°C to +70℃.   Nitrile rubber extrusions are a popular choice for automotive belting, hoses, o-rings, and oil seals within hydraulics and flanges.

    Different Grades

    Advanced Seals & Gaskets have a network of material manufacturers, meaning we have access to various grades of nitrile rubber that can be used within your extrusion and sealing applications, some of the other grades include:

    (British Standard ) BS 2751 Nitrile is higher quality synthetic elastomer compared to commercial nitrile in terms of  it’s improved elongation at break, tensile strength and resistance to a broader temperature range of -30°C up to +110°C. BS2751 nitrile is manufactured inshore hardnesses of 40° to 80°.   

    Blue Metal detectable nitrile rubber is a synthetic elastomer that is manufactured with an additive visible to metal detector scanners. This grade of material has excellent tear and abrasion resistance and is suitable for food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications as a way of detecting and reducing contamination.

    Food Quality (FDA) Nitrile rubber is available in white or blue colour options, both conforming to EC & FDA regulations, for use within food and pharmaceutical processing industries where the material needs to be resistant to vegetable oils, animal fats, fish oils and greases. 

    If you are unsure which grade you will need, please give our sales team a call to discuss your options, or to request samples.

    Benefits of Nitrile Rubber Extrusion

    • Water, mineral/oil, petrol resistance.
    • Can be formed into complex seals and extrusions
    • Abrasive resistant
    • Water Proof
    • Excellent sea against gasses
    • Excellent for automotive applications

    Advantages of Using Nitrile Rubber Extrusion

    There are many advantages to using Nitrile rubber extrusions, mainly its properties which include high tensile strength, good elongation, high resistance oils, fuels, grease, many acids and water, excellent compression set and is abrasion-resistant. Nitrile rubber extrusions have excellent resistance to hot oil, which makes it a popular material for use within the automotive industry where it can be found in the form of oil-seals, engine hoses and o-rings, to name just a few parts. 

    The process of nitrile rubber extrusions create identical cross-sectional shapes products in varying lengths as required by the customer from short, pre-cut sections, right through to rolls of extruded product 100’s of meters long. As nitrile rubber profiles are manufactured using raw material, we have the ability to design and offer bespoke and unique profiles to perfectly match our customer's specifications.
