This common elastomer is known by many names, Including Buna-N, NBR and Zylo Nitrile Butadine. No matter what you call it, nitrile rubber offers good resistance to oils, fuels, and chemicals.
NBR`s ability to withstand a range of temperatures from -40 to 180 degrees (-40 to 220 Fahrenheit) makes it an ideal material for aeronautical applications.
It is used in the automotive and aeronautical Industry to make fuel and oil handling hoses, seals, grommets, and self-sealing free tanks, since ordinary rubbers cannot be used.
Nutraline Butadine is also used to create molded goods, footwear, adhesives, sealants, sponges, expanded foams, and it also include disposable non-latex gloves, automotive transmission belts, O-Rings, Gaskets, V-Belts, Synthetic leather, Printer`s foam rollers and as cable jacketing.
Nitrile rubber provides good-to-excellent resistance to many oils and solvents.
