Nitrile Rubber (NBR)

Also known as nitrile-butadiene, acrylonitrile butadiene rubber and Buna-N, NBR is a polymer made by reaction of butadiene and acrylonitrile. Because it has a high resistance to oil which becomes more prevalent with the increase of nitrile in its makeup, this is the ideal copolymer for rubber seals and gaskets for the transport sector as well as printing rolls and hoses for the industrial sector [Industries].
