Nitrile has excellent resistance to petroleum products and its ability to be compounded for service over a wide temperature range has made it a very popular material.
Nitrile has an average temperature range as well as chemical resistance to petroleum-based oils, but decreases low temperature flexibility. Nitrile provides good compression set and tear resistance, cold flow and abrasion resistance. The major limiting properties of Nitrile are its poor ozone and weather resistance and moderate heat resistance.
• Good mechanical resistance
• Resistance to fuel. Mineral oils and common solvents
• Low compression set
• Good heat resistance up to l000°C – Preferred material
