Nitrile (Buna N rubber)

Nitrile rubber, also known as NBR, Buna-N, is a synthetic rubber derived from acrylonitrile. Its properties vary depending on the composition, but this rubber is known for its oil, fuel and other chemical resistance.

Buna N rubber is a synthetic rubber compound that is also known as standard Nitrile rubber. The compound comprises co-polymers: acrylonitrile and butadiene. Acrylonitrile is a volatile organic liquid. Butadiene is a synthetic chemical compound. When mixed, these two polymers react and produce one of the strongest oil-resistant rubber compounds currently available.

Nitrile rubber products are resistant to both solvents and oils. Aquaseal Rubber’s moulded rubber products that are manufactured with Buna N are appropriate for many industrial applications, including oil hoses, fuel hoses, o-rings, and rubber gaskets.

Nitrile rubber (Buna N) is widely used for seals, oil resistant applications, off-road equipment, and hydraulic applications. It has a temperature range 20°C to + 100°C.

Benefits of Nitrile:

  • Large working temperature range
  • Oil and hydrocarbon fuel resistant
  • Resistant to fats, oils, greases and chemicals
