Buna-N rubber, also known as Nitrile rubber, is an economical material that provides high resistance to oils and hydrocarbon fluids.
The most outstanding properties are:
· Superior resistance to oils and hydrocarbon based fluids
· Formulation prevents swelling and seal degradation when used as a gasket
· Resists compression set
· Maintains mechanical properties for exceptionally long periods of time
Buna-N can be used in a temperature range from –20°F to +170°F.
Temperature Range: –20°F to +170°F
Tensile Strength: 1,000 to 2,500 psi
Recommended for Outdoor Use: NO
Applications include: environments where fuel oil, hydraulic oil, ethylene glycol, grease, and petroleum based fluids are present. Excellent gasket material.
