Buna-N Rubber

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.
